UK Volunteer Project Co-ordinators - Summer 2017 with Concordia

We're sorry, this volunteer opportunity has expired. There may be other opportunities available. Please contact the organisation for more information.

About this volunteering opportunity

Co-ordinating is about helping volunteers get the most from their experience. It ensures the smooth running of the project and is rewarding as it is fun.

On most of our UK projects we need one or two experienced volunteers to represent Concordia and help the project run smoothly. The co-ordinators act as a link between the host organisation, the international volunteers and Concordia. The co-ordinators work alongside the volunteers, and also help the group to organise their day to day living and free time. The co-ordinators manage a budget for food and social activities, to make sure the everyone gets their fair share of work and fun.

About this organisation

Concordia is part of an International Alliance of volunteer organisations. We send volunteers to community-based projects all over the world, as well as receiving international volunteers on projects here in the UK.
