About

Are you committed to bringing sustainable and profound change to the lives of communities in rural Bolivia? Do you have previous experience of leadership and people management, either with volunteers or in a for-profit setting? If so, we would love to hear from you! BiblioWorks is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity which has established twelve libraries in poor communities in and around the beautiful city of Sucre, Bolivia. We believe that healthy communities require healthy minds, and our sustainable libraries act as a vital way for communities to develop through literacy and education. We need a volunteer to work in our Sucre office as our Volunteer Director. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who has previous experience in leadership and people management. You would be responsible for working with the Director to maintain our website, manage our volunteer recruitment strategy, and offer support to the Director with communications in English translation. You would work collaboratively with the Communications Director to support their work in fundraising for the charity. This role requires creativity, enthusiasm and a basic to intermediate level of Spanish as all of our permanent members of staff in the office are Bolivian. Experience of the above skills would be a plus, but are not a necessity. A desire to make a durable impact is the most important requirement of this role, combined with extensive enthusiasm! We would like at least a three month commitment from any volunteers wishing to apply for this role. We look forward to welcoming you to our team here in Bolivia!
