If you are interested in nonprofits, health care administration and public health programs in developing countries, we have opportunities for you in Armenia to work and learn, to help the people of Armenia and to see the country at the same time. Administrative Internships run four to six weeks or longer in length and each is individually designed to meet your particular needs. Volunteers pay their own expenses for airfare, lodging and food.
As an Administrative Intern, you will work with the EyeCare Project staff in their Yerevan Office doing a variety of tasks that fit your skills and experience. In addition, you will join the staff as they visit schools, nursing homes, soup kitchens and polyclinics — anywhere and everywhere they are needed. Interns select one of several areas and work with a staff member — or they may split their time and work in more than one area depending on their interests and the needs of the organization at the time. These areas include marketing and public relations; monitoring and evaluation; program design and development; and general health care administration. Though not required, knowledge of Armenian and Russian languages is helpful.
If you would like to apply for an EyeCare Project Administrative Internship, please E-mail us at Volunteer@eyecareproject.com and include a letter of introduction. Attach your resume and a one-page statement on why you would like to be an Administrative Intern in Armenia. We look forward to hearing from you!
