Closing date

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 WeWorld-GVC’s EU Programmes Department and contribute to the elaboration of thematic analysis, internal reports as well as the organisation of online workshops and events targeting mainly young people.

This is a great opportunity for those who look to engage in a new sector such as humanitarian and development affairs at European and global level, and to contribute to global education activities as well as actions aimed to enhance active citizenship on thematic focuses such as migration, social inclusion, development, climate change etc.

The candidate, with their specific set of skills, will be able to support WeWorld-GVC’s EU Programmes Department to ensure its goals.
