ORGANIZATION: YesLiberia

According to Forbes magazine, one of the most powerful ways for future managers to understand and experience the type of leadership needed for anyone who wants to be a corporate executive is to do volunteer work early in their careers. Basically, if you wish to be a manager, a supervisor, or a director in the future, it is important to volunteer to lead.

YesLiberia can create that opportunity for you, virtually. Imagine virtually volunteering only 5hrs to 10hrs per week to make a meaningful difference for an amazing nonprofit organization. Our organization desperately needs someone to help coordinate our virtual volunteers.

As our Assistant Volunteer Coordinator, you will work closely with our current Volunteer Coordinator to learn about the organization and understand our processes, welcome and brief volunteers about the organization, help assign volunteers to a task or project, help to lead volunteer meetings, and help to build an effective volunteer program at YesLiberia. You will also help our organization to cultivate volunteers so that they feel appreciated and rewarded for their time. Of course, volunteering is its own reward but we want people to understand how much we appreciate their work.

According to Forbes Magazine, as a successful Assistant Volunteer Coordinator, you will be preparing yourself for positions as a future corporate executive. If you’re interested, please apply now; we’re waiting to hear from you.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower young people through meaningful service learning opportunities in education, healthcare, and technology. We do this through strategic partnerships and learning models to utilize existing youth habits and uphold societal values in the communities we work.

Description

Conviction created YesLiberia. Daily the needs of underprivileged are ignored. We ignore their struggles because it’s easier to deal with the more important things in our lives-- like climbing the corporate ladder and saving money so we don’t become indigent. And some of us ignore their challenges because they bring back unpleasant memories we seek to repress. But disregarding the plight of the underprivileged yields no resolution. Then certain things happen to remind us their struggles exist no matter how hard we try to pretend our needs surpass theirs.

Jallah was convicted by several of those things over a short period of time. The prostitution of children in Thailand reminded him of Liberia. The rape and war in Congo reminded him of Liberia. The genocide in Rwanda reminded him of Liberia. He remembered his underprivileged past--a past where he was seen as less than elite based on his tribal and economic status and where his education came as a gift from the United Methodist Church.

Reminded, he became convicted to act and YesLiberia was founded to educate and help underprivileged Liberians whose plight he intimately understood.

YesLiberia is a 501c3 charity organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service since July 2009. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowable by law. YesLiberia is also registered at four government agencies in Liberia.
