what we offer
We offer highly competitive wages and benefits. More than offering a good salary, we provide candidates with a great opportunity to contribute to good causes and make a difference in the world.
Will you like to share your knowledge and expertise to help families, women and children torn apart by conflict?
Volunteer with My Bridge International, a UK registered charity that strives to bridge the inequality gap caused by political instability. Our current target is Cameroon with conflict in the English-speaking part and Northern part of the country.
We are looking for volunteers who will help in our rehabilitation plan and also those who can provide medical support.
Many victims in these regions have fled to bushes and we have several schools and health units that have been completely destroyed and some burnt down. We would have to partner with existing schools and health units and also run some community projects to help build back these regions.
Our volunteers will provide support to such victims in terms of encouragement, motivation, health support or anyway they can.
Volunteer Duties and Responsibilities
Volunteers will perform a variety of duties depending on the project they are working on.
Providing Information to the Public
Volunteers would speak with victims and help answer their questions to provide as much information as possible about the cause and the resources that we are making available for them.
Working with Other Volunteers on Projects
Volunteers work closely with other people on projects towards shared targets, or creating activity plans.
Motivating Others to Get Involved
Volunteers are key in motivating others to get involved with the cause at hand, such as encouraging them to donate money or to sign up to fundraising events.
Keeping Accurate Records
Volunteers are responsible for keeping up-to-date records where necessary and supplying these records or reports to higher members of the organization on a regular basis.
Volunteer Skills and Qualifications
Volunteers need to be empathetic, great communicators, and comfortable working as part of a team towards shared goals and targets. There is no formal requirement to become a volunteer, but the following skills are beneficial:
- Teamwork – volunteers should work well as part of a team and value diversity, as they will often be working with people of all different backgrounds and ages
- Communication skills – volunteers should have strong communication skills and be able to follow instructions clearly and efficiently
- Confidentiality – volunteers are often involved in working with confidential matters or sensitive subjects, so their ability to withhold this information is vital
- Organization skills – in order to manage different tasks, volunteers need to be organized and able to manage their time effectively
- Work ethic – volunteers must be able to work on various projects and sometimes in adverse conditions to achieve a goal or target, so it’s important that applicants for this position have an excellent work ethic
Volunteer Education and Training
There is no formal requirement to become a volunteer. However, depending on the services you intend to provide, you need to have the right qualifications and experience.
