Do you want to promote greater cross-cultural awareness, understanding and engagement? Do you want to work with a diverse team of wonderful volunteers and interns from around the world? Do you want to make a difference and engage in efforts that are actually fulfilling? Then volunteering with the Worldview Project is your ticket!
As we are based in San Diego, California, even though we are all working remotely we have a preference for volunteers who are living here or who have a good familiarity with San Diego.
The Worldview Project is seeking a Schools Program Assistant for its Cultures in the Classroom program. We are looking for someone who is very well organized, perfectly reliable, possessing excellent social skills, a professional demeanor, a collaborative spirit, and someone who has sufficient time to dedicate to the position. Because it is an elementary schools based program, the coordinator must be fingerprinted and background checked. The coordinator will work closely with the individuals who have developed the program. Project management experience is helpful but not required.
The required minimum hours are 10 hours per week. We prefer an individual who has the requisite time, but is not transitioning from school, seeking full time employment, or have plans that may entail leaving San Diego in the foreseeable future. This is a position of high responsibility and should be a great addition to your CV or Resume, but the candidate must embrace and have a passion for the Worldview Project’s mission to promote greater cross-cultural awareness, understanding and engagement. As much of the work requires working with our staff and local schools and educators, availability during the daytime is highly required.
The Worldview Project has a wonderfully diverse staff and a large number of ongoing projects. When you write to us, please detail your background, education, interests, and experiences. We look forward to receiving your application and thank you for your interest with our organization!

The need for a greater understanding of the world's cultures is rapidly increasing as the world's social, political and economic systems become increasingly inter-dependent. American society itself is rapidly becoming more diverse and improved relations between various cultural groups and between individuals from different cultures largely depends on a better understanding of cultural differences. A greater understanding of cultures is important to all levels of human interaction, from the level of international politics and commerce to the social interactions found within cities, neighborhoods, workplaces and classrooms. In addition to improving social relations across cultural boundaries, an increased knowledge of other cultures enriches aesthetic and intellectual experience. All of the world's societies must contend with difficult social, environmental and technological problems and improved understanding of other cultures and better interactions between cultures and countries will facilitate the sharing of information and techniques that may be of great practical merit. The Worldview Project seeks to promote a better understanding of, tolerance for and appreciation of the world's cultural groups and the diverse range of cultures and sub-cultural groups that live within the United States The Worldview Project is organized as public benefit nonprofit corporation dedicated to the following general and specific purposes: * The promotion of greater appreciation, tolerance, knowledge and understanding for and between world cultures, sub-cultural and ethnic groups through the publication and distribution of educational materials. * The provision of resources and services to educators and students who wish to learn about other cultures. * The facilitation and enabling of communication between American students and students from other cultures through Worldwide Web communications. * The promotion and provision of resources for the study of cultures (Anthropology) by American primary and secondary school students as well as the general public. * The encouragement, support and publishing of writers who write about their own cultures and illustrators who employ culturally specific styles and motifs in their artwork. * Publishing support for anthropologists who want to write for a younger school readership.
