Job Ad & Profile Description

Position : Community Development Volunteer

Go Volunteer Africa is looking for volunteers wish to get involved in our Community Development Initiatives in Malawi. Volunteers in Malawi will work as part of a team dedicated to a particular project pertaining to one of our main program areas: Education, Women Empowerment, Youth Development, and Environmental Conservation. 

The volunteers who will get involved in our volunteer work in Malawi will have the chance to interact directly with the community by preparing and coordinating workshops and activities with our local counterpart organization.

Volunteer Work in Malawi provides participants with the unique opportunity to continuously improve program parameters and best practices.  The projects are constantly enriched by the participation and insight of volunteers with a wide range of experience and educational backgrounds.

As a participant, you will have the opportunity to try different roles and projects, dependent on your interests and skills. Go Volunteer Africa’s volunteer work in Malawi does not require specialized skills (although these would be an advantage), and volunteers for both short and long-term placements, are accepted all the year round.

Volunteers certainly gain an amazing life experience from their participation in our volunteer projects in Malawi. On first arrival, most volunteers sample all the projects before selecting the tasks that suit them best.

The first few days of your placement will be orientation and adjusting to Malawian life. After this initial period, your placement work will begin.

The type of work you are involved with will be dependent on your interests, abilities, level of experience as well as your comfort levels.

One of the advantages of the Community project is that you are not limited to one job role and will have the opportunity to ‘sample’ other roles during your placement. To become involved in another projects simply inform a member of staff who will happily make any necessary arrangements.

Volunteer in Malawi with Africa’s leading and largest volunteer travel organization – Go Volunteer Africa.
