Volunteer Coordinator

As the Volunteer Coordinator you are responsible for all volunteers here in Peru. You will

communicate with the German team and help the volunteers before and during their stay with

Intiwawa. You are the main point of contact for orientation, support and coordination of all

volunteers. This role is extremely important to our organization as for many volunteers adjusting to the cultural differences and getting settled into their projects can be a challenge. Maintaining close relations with our volunteers is the key to being successful in this position, as you will play a central part in their experience here in Peru. The position is non-paid, but you will receive lots of communicational and organisational skills. You will also form part of the Intiwawa committee and participate in meetings and decision-making.
