Volunteer Staff, Dominican Republic


Have you ever wanted to help further the work that we’re doing locally in the Dominican Republic and in the lives of our volunteers? Well, now’s your chance to join our team and work with us on the ground!

Volunteer Staff, Dominican Republic

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, caring person to work with us in the role of a Volunteer Staff member. Start to finish, you’ll play a significant part in executing a Build—from the initial planning stages to the completion of follow-up activities. As a positive influence, you’ll support our staff, provide leadership to our volunteers, and maintain a watchful eye for the safety and well-being of everyone involved on a Build. Your attention to detail will be put to good use, as you work with our staff to plan, coordinate, and facilitate group orientations, evening activities, and excursion days. On top of that, whenever there’s an extended break between Builds, you’ll help with the ongoing development of Builds Program resources and have the opportunity to participate in Program Development sessions and activities.

A strong problem solver who lives out the principles and values of Servant Leadership, you have hands-on international experience that is similar to our Builds. You’re an effective communicator who possesses exceptional interpersonal skills and is known as someone who is self-motivated, resilient, and kind. You possess a valid driver’s licence, a valid passport, and are able to travel internationally without restrictions. Team leadership and construction experience and the ability to speak Spanish are considered an asset. Living in (or a willingness to relocate to) Sosua, Dominican Republic—and an awesome sense of humour—are most definitely required.

Interested? Let’s talk possibilities. You’ll need to send us a cover letter and your resume.
