On this page, you’ll find a LOT of ways in which you can lend your experience to benefit the people of Fond des Blancs during one or more of our two team trips each year. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, or have an area of expertise that you think could help but is not listed here, please let us know. We look forward to hearing from you!
We are looking to undertake a number of new projects and roll out our programs in a bigger way this coming year, so we need plenty of volunteers to support these shorter assignments both here & in Haiti. Might you be one of them?
Our short-term US-based opportunities are largely centered on research and/or fundraising activities. Please contact us if you are interested in providing research or fundraising in the following program areas:
- education in Haiti
- Haiti agriculture
- small and medium enterprise development
- program monitoring and evaluation
- international donors to Haiti
- organizational development
We have some roles that are ongoing and will always require filling. Plugging in with us doesn’t lock you in for the long haul and there’s no expectation that you’d serve alongside us for any longer than you’re willing or able.
“Service…is not something to do in your spare time, it is the very purpose of life.”
— Marian Wright Edelman
Do you have an interest in making an international impact, but simply aren’t available to travel? We have a number of volunteer positions available here in the States and many that can even be filled right in the comfort of your own home. We’d love to hear from you if any of the below descriptions pique your interest. If you have relevant skills that don’t quite fit any of these positions, please reach out! All opportunities require at least a high school degree, though we may be able to arrange work for students in need of service hours.
Any of these positions may be formalized as internships, which will provide you the opportunity to represent GSI at networking and/or fundraising events, set mutally agreed-upon hours, and work on your own schedule.
