We are seeking candidates who have subject matter expertise (MS degrees desirable), training experience and an interest in accepting two-year assignments in the southern part of the country - likely locations include: Yambio, Maridi, Yirol, Rumbeck, Boma, and Yei.
Interested persons can Email CVs and/or email Bob Delemarre at: firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain more information, raise questions, etc. These assignments would not be suitable for families with children due to lack of facilities and schooling.

Any RPCVs interested in a short-term volunteer opportunity in Jordan? The America's Unofficial Ambassadors (AUA) program at Creative Learning is dedicated to expanding and supporting private American citizens' service in the Muslim World. From January 6-15 2012, AUA will lead a group of volunteers to Jordan to support local community development initiatives, learn about Jordanian culture, and meet face-to-face with Jordanian families and university students. Volunteers will spend 4 days working with Habitat for Humanity to build homes for poor families in the north of the country. They will also engage in discussion with civil society groups in Amman and Irbid to learn more about Jordanian culture, share insight into American culture, and discuss challenges common to both societies. The Building Peace by Building Homes trip to Jordan will end with visits to Petra (one of the modern 7 Wonders of the World) and the Dead Sea.
The trip is the first in a series of three Building Peace by Building Homes trips that CL will lead in 2012 [Additional trips to Tajikistan (May) and Indonesia (July) are still being planned].
