Online Volunteer: Translator English into Spanish for GVC Lebanon

The EU Aid Volunteers initiative provides volunteering opportunities to support communities in disaster-affected countries outside the EU in better preparing for crisis and responding when disaster strikes. As well as volunteering in the countries affected by disaster through full-time deployment, online volunteering is another way to get involved.

Online volunteering is a way of giving your time by completing a volunteering task through the internet at home, work or university. As online volunteering is done without leaving home, financial support is not provided. Online volunteers complement the EU Aid Volunteers initiative by doing practical tasks – in areas like research, technology, translation or design – that support EU Aid Volunteers projects on the ground to reach more people and make their work more effective. For each online assignment successfully completed, online volunteers receive a certificate of completion.

For the present vacancy, the Online Volunteer will support the GVC Global Protection Task Force in elaborating essential translations of technical papers regarding Protection, Community Protection Approach and Vulnerability Indicators.
