Non-profit Center Coordinator
Support Children in Chiang Rai, Thailand
PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT
We are looking for hard-working, dedicated Experteer to commit their time and talents for one year at our children’s home in Thailand. Your role will be to manage the day-to-day maintenance of the center’s programs and initiatives alongside an international staff, in the effort to provide a better opportunity for children’s futures.
Our Thailand center is a home for seven older children from a nearby hill tribe. Teenagers from this marginalized community come to our center for a stable home and the chance for an education. Your role would include fostering a familial environment for the children, overseeing their education and managing the various needs and activities of the center.
We are a grassroots, all-volunteer organization with no central office, so co-Directors complete 4 hours of international work daily that consists of various administrative tasks. All co-Directors manage one or more of our international task teams, such as University Relations, Fundraising, Teacher Training or Media. You will work closely with co-Directors at other centers to manage these teams and will receive unique training in a multi-level, multifaceted system. You will be assigned your team according to your experience and skills.

Stipend: Volunteers must commit to serve at least one year at the center. Basic accommodation and food is provided by us.

The job can be strenuous, but is incredibly rewarding and you will leave us with new highly transferable skills, a better understanding of international NGOs, and an unforgettable experience that will last the rest of your life.
