About

The Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) is a nonprofit based out of Arlington, VA that helps countries that are affected by landmines.

We are looking an office volunteer who can assist our Development department for 3-5 hours per week between 9:30am - 5pm. Duties would include helping to plan for special events, grant research, assisting with donor outreach, and assisting with marketing efforts.

MLI’s primary mission is to establish practical, affordable and sustainable indigenous programs to help severely mine-affected countries rid their land of the humanitarian dangers and destabilizing effects of landmines. Major projects include: (1) the Mine Detection Dog Partnership Program (MDDPP), which provides lifesaving Mine Detection Dogs (MDDs) to "sniff out" landmines, save lives and return land to productive use; the (2) Children Against Mines Program (CHAMPS), which links American youth with students living in mine-infested communities, as they work together to promote mine risk education and to assist young survivors; and (3) the Survivors’ Assistance program, which helps children who have been injured by landmines.
