Are you ready to serve--again?
Encore! and UWI undertook an extensive assessment trip to India and Indonesia and, as a result, have redefined the volunteer assignment below. Flexibility and responsiveness to our host partners' priorities and needs is our primary concern. To be considered for a volunteer assignment with Encore! and UWI, be sure that your online member profile is complete and current. Qualified and interested Encore! members may submit an expression of interest, along with a resume or c.v. to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for your interest!
