Local NGOs in Puerto Rico play a pivotal role in the continued progress and revitalisation of the island, especially following Hurricane Maria. Unfortunately, many of these NGOs are understaffed and under-resourced, which limits their ability to achieve their missions.
You can make a real difference in Puerto Rico by supporting these NGOs and helping them to build their capacity, while also honing your own skills and experience.
Your duties will depend on the specific NGO you are placed with, the priority of tasks at the time of your program and your own skills, interests and experience. The needs of local NGOs evolve as their work progresses, therefore enthusiasm, passion and flexibility are essential for a successful and meaningful volunteer experience.
Your tasks can include administration, research, marketing, fundraising, IT support, website development, translation or anything prioritised at your placement at the time.
The NGO Support project in Puerto Rico is ideal for volunteers looking to gain real life experience and insight into the way NGOs operate in developing regions, while sharing and growing your own skills to help further their reach and impact.Apply now
