Technical Volunteers needed in Nigeria â Agri-business, Education and Training, Farming, Organizational Development & Grant Writing â Share your Specialized Skills Across the Globe (US Citizen/US Permanent Residents Only)
Position Title: Technical Volunteers needed in Nigeria â Agri-business, Education and Training, Farming, Organizational Development & Grant Writing â Share your Specialized Skills Across the Globe -Â Must be a US Citizen or a United States Legal Permanent Resident (green card holder)
Through the Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) Program, volunteers provide the opportunity to share their skills and experience with individuals, organizations, and businesses around the world. Volunteers donate their time and knowledge, and in turn, directly improve the lives of others. Volunteers have supported women and youth entrepreneurs, food and agriculture businesses, schools and training centers, and farmers â enabling them to earn more income, feed their communities, and gain new jobs.
As part of the Farmer-to-Farmer Consortium, this assignment is made possible through USAID funding. In accordance to USAID guidelines, any candidates submitted for consideration under this project must have be a U.S. Citizen or United States Legal Permanent Resident.
The volunteer experience:
F2F assignments are driven by the needs of the host organizations the program serves. In-country representatives work with local organizations and partners to identify challenges that cannot be overcome with the knowledge and skills at hand. Together, they develop scopes of work that define volunteer assignments. Winrockâs recruiters use these scopes of work to identify volunteers through an extensive electronic database and volunteer network. Winrock staff coordinate all travel and logistical arrangements for the volunteers and help acquaint travelers with the culture of host countries.
Volunteers donate their time and work independently or as part of a team of experts. Most volunteers travel abroad for an assignment that lasts two to four weeks.
Once volunteers reach their destinations, transportation and interpreting services are arranged by local Winrock staff members who serve as contacts during the assignment. Volunteers then work directly with organizations and businesses to exchange ideas, solve problems, and create lasting solutions. Many volunteers develop long-term relationships with the organizations they serve and return on follow-up assignments to refine solutions and provide further technical assistance.
