The EduSpots team are always team-building!

Alongside new paid staff roles in Ghana (see recent news articles for roles relating to operations and education), EduSpots is looking for further committed to volunteers who want to contribute in diverse ways to our ever-evolving work – which is all centred on supporting a network of 250 local volunteers who drive community-led change through education centres named Spots in rural Ghana and Kenya.

Through all these positions will gain huge insight into education and international development and collective action through learning on a daily basis on WhatsApp from our active network of 250 volunteers in rural Ghana who are the main focus of our work and our reason for existence. Read our most recent impact report here.

Community Volunteers 

If you are in one of our Spot communities – see here, simply sign-up to volunteer here and we will connect you with the Project Leaders. Note that we are not expanding our network of Spots to new areas at present due to a need to focus on driving a sustainable impact in current communities.

Internships

We are looking for committed and self-motivated interns who are keen to gain practical skills and understanding relating to education and international development, and provide wide-ranging support to our team in Ghana and the UK, to enable us to increase our impact in a period of growth. The internship will be remote for 3 months, with the opportunity of extending this period. The time is 7-10 hours / week but this can be spread out throughout the week. Due to limited organisational time, we need interns to be committed to the work, and able to work independently.
