Are you self-motivated and interested in learning more about peer-to-peer fundraising with an international nonprofit? Do you have experience working in Latin America or care deeply about education? Build your skills and enhance your resume by becoming an Ambassador with BPP this holiday season!

Barrio Planta Project (BPP) is a nonprofit organization that provides high-quality education to children with limited resources in Nicaragua and Mexico. We’re committed to educating our students no matter what is going on in the world and are looking for Ambassadors to assist us with our Holiday Fundraising Campaign. This is a remote position, with training and weekly meetings held online.

We are looking for volunteers who have:

  • Strong written communication skills.
  • Excellent working knowledge of different social media platforms.
  • Strong relationships with influences in the community.
  • A passion for education, development, or Latin America.

We are putting together a team of Ambassadors to help us raise money to continue to provide our free, supplementary educational programs at all of our schools. We will help you build your own fundraising page, give you a detailed toolkit, and development professionals will meet with you in small weekly meetings to teach you the basics of online fundraising. With the right team, we know our Holiday Campaign will be a success!

This is a volunteer position, but we do not accept all applicants into the BPP Ambassador program. We will conduct a short interview prior to the campaign. This is an amazing resume-builder and introduction to fundraising for those seeking work in the nonprofit world, or for those who just want to make a difference. Upon success in the volunteer program, ambassadors will receive a certificate of completion from BPP. Any ambassador that raises $1000 will become an official student sponsor, receiving letters, photos, and an online meet-and-greet with their student!

Do you think you have what it takes to be a BPP Ambassador? If you’re interested in joining our team please send your resume and a brief cover letter to ambassador@barrioplantaproject.org by October 19th

Dates: Nov 9th, 2020 - January 9th, 2021
