|Job Title:||Help Needed re Domestic Violence in Africa & South America|
|Organization:||NGOabroad: International Careers & Volunteering|
We have just launched a Domestic Violence program. Our recently returned Social Work volunteer reports that 95% of men said that they beat their wife "to keep her in line." Most mothers report they keep their kids in line with corporeal punishment. Likewise the teachers. Come help introduce positive parenting, respectful interactions and the advance the DV program.
Our director reports that there is a high rate of domestic violence. Help us launch this DV program. Spanish is essential.
1. Strong clinical and/or community education skills 2. Cultural grace, not dogmatic =
ability to "read" community's beliefs & norms & gracefully craft your message 3. Flexibility: nothing goes as planned. Ability to "roll with it" is precious.
Tight job descriptions are something that you rarely find in the above countries.
There is considerable latitude in all of these positions; we can often fit the program to you.
These are volunteer positions. Applications accepted on a rolling basis. No end date.
Currently accepting applications for Oct, Nov, Dec 2011 and 2012. Spend your winter in the tropics! (but we welcome your help any time of year!)
