EVENTS COORDINATION ASSISTANT
SKIP is a charity working with disadvantaged families in an impoverished district of the city of Trujillo, Peru. Our holistic program focuses on the educational, economic, emotional and social development of each child and family. Our aim is to foster the capacity of children and families to be the principal agents of change in their own lives.
Although as an organization SKIP's focus is on the year-long activities of its education program, we also organize many special events to complement this program. The Events department takes responsibility for these special events, and is in constant contact with the city's local organizations. This department's activities include health and prevention campaigns, special celebrations, and student excursions. Its general objective is to guarantee the success of SKIP events through the involvement of SKIP itself, local organizations or individuals, and the program's beneficiaries.
The Assistant Events Coordinator will work with our Events Coordinator to organize events. The assistant will be required to:
This department has variable working hours according to schedules of the businesses and organizations with which we work: the hours may vary between early mornings and night shifts. Events team meetings are held every two weeks, although they may be held more regularly in the weeks before an event. Events usually take place on Saturday mornings.
The assistant will work under the supervision of the Events Coordinator, and be responsible for:
We are looking for a candidate who is committed to the work we do and interested in working as part of the SKIP team.
The benefits of working with us
We do ask volunteers to make a contribution to the charity in return for volunteering. We know it can seem a bit strange to 'pay to work' but this is how we fund the charity and you will see where the money is going when you are here - 59% of our annual budget currently comes from the volunteer contributions and additional fundraising done by current and ex volunteers.
Accommodation is provided and the cost is included in the donation - this ranges from GBP£350 to GBP£125 (US$540 - US$190) per month, depending on the length of stay. Please see the website for more information: http://www.skipperu.org/en/volunteer/contributionfees
We are happy for volunteers to fundraise the contribution and there is more information about this on the website along with some information about possible grant opportunities.
