It’s also important to be a self-starter. You will have constant access to the staff of Volunteers Around the World for guidance, however much of the work will require you to be self-motivated as you will not come into an office. Therefore, what you produce is how we measure your productivity.
It is important that you feel comfortable in a leadership role and are a very outgoing and social person; you will need to present VAW’s aspirations to students, school principals, faculty members, NGO authorities and others; so you will need to feel comfortable articulating ideas and talking to strangers and in front of large audiences.
The main responsibilities will be:
– Research Chinese framework of norms and laws for volunteerism abroad
– Interview students and school authorities to get a better understanding of their needs
– Establish partnerships to reach goals
– Create presentations, letters, flyers and any materials needed
– Contact students and recruit members
