Holiday Campaign Fundraising Volunteer
Learn about nonprofit development from home and help provide students with an education
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 spring!
Barrio Planta Project 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 and requires a commitment of 2-5 hours/week.
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 Fundraising 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. Those who raise $1000 or more will become student sponsors and will be able to virtually meet 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 email@example.com
About BARRIO PLANTA PROJECT
1800 M St. NW, PO Box #33997, WASHINGTON DC, DC 20033, US
Due to limited resources, many students in Latin America only attend school for half a day. The Barrio Planta Project (BPP) provides free supplementary schooling to the children of Latin America with the goal to give them positive recreation and supervised structure during the other half of their day. We believe that Creativity, Confidence, Communication, and Critical Thinking skills are essential abilities and will help our students lead happy, healthy and productive lives.
Barrio Planta Project (BPP) was officially registered in the United States in December 2009 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. In March 2011, BPP also received national NGO status in Nicaragua. Barrio Planta Project (BPP) envisions a world where local communities are able to leverage the growth of dynamic, emerging industries into economic and educational opportunities for their children, youth, and families. Across our three school sites in Nicaragua, BPP empowers children and youth in Latin America through free supplementary schooling that instills creativity, enhances confidence, facilitates international communication, and develops critical thinking skills. The primary beneficiaries of the organization are impoverished children and youth, ages 4-17 and a growing number of programs are designed for a secondary group of adults, ages 17+.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
