Grant writer for a global educational network

Volunteer opportunity for someone 55+. SOAR 55 is a global educational network enabling members of disparate communities to recognize and accept their differences as they work toward a civil society. In recent years a number of alumni in eastern and southern Africa, the Balkans, and Canada have been inspired to develop affiliates in their home communities using the organization's model. To support this expansion of its activities, they are seeking the services of a part-time grant writer.

Volunteer in the Caribbean with an International Health NGO

International Health Initiative (IHI) is a Boston based organization currently working on implementing sustainable healthcare solutions in a community in Dominican Republic, Constanza. We do two trips a year in which we provide services in different healthcare areas (surgery, disability, chronic disease, sexual health and water). We train and educate local providers on updated and modern practices, do health care screenings and referrals, implement health fairs and are currently doing water research in the areas that don't have access to water. We are also collaborating with two PCVs (we are their project partner) to implement sustainable practices.

We are beginning our recruitment for the 2016 trips (January and May). Those who join will have the opportunity to get involved in a new non-profit and potentially become part of the governing board (we are in need of people with development experience). We are also looking for any Spanish, French or Creole fluent speakers for the trips.

Volunteer with seniors, practice your Spanish, have fun!

The Resident Services Program at IBA is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help out in workshops and activities with residents in the Villa Victoria low-income housing development in the South End. Activities and hours are flexible, and range from calling the numbers at BINGO, helping in an arts and crafts workshop, or bring our own ideas! We focus on health and recreation for our senior residents, most of whom speak Spanish but Chinese speakers are also highly desireable!
