PeaceHub volunteers (Medellin, Colombia)

PeaceHub is seeking short and long term volunteers, Medellin, Colombia
MasterPeace Global Bootcamp

We are ThePeaceHub, a local peace initiative that focuses on supporting social enterprises because we have personally experienced how art, music and dance have transformed formerly violent neighbourhoods in Medellin.

We are looking for enthusiastic and driven individuals who can help us transform local projects in the creative sector of Medellin into economically sustainable social enterprises.

In order to support local neighbourhoods and the international community we are looking for both short term and long term volunteers.

The short term volunteers do not need to have any experience in a particular field and fluency in the Spanish language is a pre, but is not required. These volunteers would help us organise the 7th annual “MasterPeace Global Bootcamp in the beginning of October. In this bootcamp 45 global peace leaders will participate in workshops to improve their skills in leadership, peace building, community work and social entrepreneurship. After this bootcamp is finished we are organising other events that promote these values and work towards a more peaceful society. Volunteers who could help during the bootcamp receive free food, can participate in workshops and get to meet many inspiring people.

Long term voluntary positions are more similar to internships and these interns will help to compose a team that provides economic advice to local initiatives in the creative sector, because this sector is extremely important to transform formerly violent neighbourhoods in Medellin. It would be very helpful if these volunteers have any
experience with marketing, fundraising, event managing, translating or photography. Conversational knowledge of Spanish is required for most positions because there will be a lot of interaction with locals. We are an officially registered NGO so if you need approval for certain academic purposes, we can provide this.

Please send your application (with a CV and short cover letter). Please cite PCDN as the source of the posting in your application.
