Programme Volunteer (CARE International)

About Care

CARE International in Vietnam (CVN) is a creative and dynamic organisation, which has worked with Vietnamese, and international partner organisations since 1989 in over 300 projects. We recognise that the key to achieving equitable development outcomes lies in addressing deeply rooted, structural underlying causes of poverty and injustices which contribute to the exclusion and vulnerability of particular groups in society. Our long term programme goals in Vietnam are that poor and marginalised ethnic minority and urban people of all genders, particularly women, equitably benefit from development, are resilient to changing circumstances and have a legitimate voice.

About Volunteer Program

Volunteer Program at CARE International in Vietnam (CVN) is designed for national young talents who desire to pave their career path with interest in development work, in a hope that their contribution to CVN would promote not only growth of their knowledge and skills but development of their career as well.
In companionship with CVN, volunteers can expect to (i) Gain an insight of development and humanitarian sector with a strong focus on gender equality (see About CARE); (ii) Build up professional life with first-hand experiences in a diverse working environment; and (iii) Challenge and develop behaviour competences in a dynamic international organization. 
To that end, volunteers are at the heart of the program with a support structure that enables them to seek mentorship and collaboration within and beyond the organization. This structure will involve various mentors who could be supervisors, colleagues, and peers to provide on-job guidance, educational opportunities, and peer-learning experiences.
As Volunteer Program is aligned with CVN’s Volunteer and Intern Policy and Guidelines, monthly allowance along with Accident and Health package will be provided. For specific tasks that require travel out of their work base, work-related expenses will be covered in accordance to CVN’s cost norm.
CARE International in Vietnam (CVN) is looking for a passionate and committed companion to provide administrative support that contributes to effectiveness and efficiency of our key programmes.
