DARE Network is looking for skilled volunteers to help us increase our capacity to provide comprehensive substance abuse prevention and treatment along the Thai/Burma border.
Volunteer Vacancy Position
DARE Network is a community based organization that has been working with the ethnic minorities of Burma for 15 years to educate, prevent, treat and support people and communities affected by substance abuse.
Our motto is: A free mind cannot be destroyed.
DARE Network is expanding and looking for a long term volunteer, to share our journey on the Thai/Burma border. The volunteer will support the team as an External Relations Manager. This is not a paid role, so the volunteer must be self supporting. It is possible that the volunteer will be able to access funding at a later date but we need you now!
Position Title: External Relations Manager
Duration: Minimum 6 months; ideally 1 – 2 years.
Location: DARE Network Head Office, Mae Sariang, Thailand
Benefits: The volunteer is expected to be self- supporting. However, DARE will not charge volunteer any fees. DARE will provide refugee camp passes and travel per diems.
The volunteer must supply her/his own visa (documents can be provided to assist), travel to Thailand, health insurance and living costs. DARE will pay the volunteer limited travel expenses when on assignment for DARE only.
Stakeholder Engagement and Fundraising
This aspect of the volunteer role involves working with DARE Staff to coordinate DARE Network’s external relations with donors, potential donors, advisory boards, coordinating bodies, and other NGOs. This includes:
As well as the aforementioned roles, the volunteer will perform other tasks as required by the Program Coordinator, Director and other DARE staff, such as proofreading, assisting staff with English language communication skills, and being part of staff programs. The role of the volunteer is creative and the volunteer is encouraged to bring their own experience and knowledge with the DARE team. It is important for the volunteer to be confident to self-initiate work, and decision-making, assisting DARE staff in whatever ways possible, so that they may evolve their role to fit the needs of DARE Network. DARE is a small organisation and works as a very supportive environment. There is huge opportunity for you and the team to learn and grow together, keeping in mind that they are the experts in their own communities and have already many skills.
