3. To support education for at-risk children

Teaching Assistant: TIMKATEC

TIMKATEC is an MCC-supported school for elementary and vocational students who are involved in the restavek system, living on the streets, or come from vulnerable homes. Because of the prohibitive cost of schooling in Haiti, these children might not otherwise receive an education. If you are creative, energetic, and love spending time with kids, we can't think of a better place for you to serve with MCC in Haiti. 

Positions in Desarmes, Haiti

 

MCC has been implementing agroforestry and sustainable livelihood programs out of its rural office in the small town of Desarmes for over 30 years. In 2019, the Desarmes office will become an independent NGO, a partner of, but independent of MCC. While we'll miss our colleagues in Desarmes, we are excited to walk alongside them as they take this important step to organizational independence.

This position will support the ongoing development of effective accounting, finance, and non-profit management strategies alongside the Desarmes office team.  Don't worry, you won't be sitting at a desk all day: the communities' supported by this program are often in areas accessible only by foot, so make sure you pack your hiking boots.

This rural based communications position includes developing website content, supporting the development of an independent organizational identity and brand, crafting communications to donors, and storytelling about projects and partners, all in this incredibly beautiful part of Haiti. You might start your day on the back of donkey at dawn, capturing the beauty of the countryside with your camera, and end your day in the leafy office courtyard, creating an infographic for potential donors. If you're as adventurous as you are creative, this position is perfect for you!
