As a Communication and Promotion Assistant, your role is to help our Operations Director by publicizing La Esperanza Granda through social media, managing public profiles, and aiding the development of the organization through promoting volunteer and donor opportunities.
In addition, we often need assistance for various tasks including one-off projects, such as updating volunteer manuals and helping with organizing resources.
This position is available throughout the year and requires a minimum time commitment of 2 weeks, although this is not necessary where the assistance is for a one-off project. Volunteers in this role should be fluent in English and have at least basic level Spanish.
We ask each volunteer to make an initial contribution of US$50 towards administration costs, so that all donations continue to go directly towards supporting the learning centers and other projects. In return, you will receive two La Esperanza Granada t-shirts free to wear when you are working with us. There are no additional fees involved with volunteering at La Esperanza Granada, although any fundraising initiatives are welcomed!
Volunteers are responsible for their own living expenses for the duration of their stay. However, La Esperanza Granada has inexpensive accommodation, with cooking facilities, available for volunteers.
Granada is a beautiful colonial city, on the shore of Lake Cocibolca and surrounded by volcanoes. In close proximity to a variety of places of interest and with a buzzing evening atmosphere, volunteers are free to spend their weekends experiencing the beauty of Nicaragua.
La Esperanza Granada can also assist by arranging affordable Spanish classes and arranging local homestays.
