  • Work requirements: Honduras Child Alliance welcomes volunteers from around the world and has operated two volunteer houses in El Porvenir since 2009. The Volunteer House Manager helps to welcome, orient, and supervise international volunteers. The House Manager is similar to a 'resident assistant' in a university dormitory and helps to support the international volunteers to comfortably and safely live in Honduras. In this role, the House Manager is part of the in-country Leadership Team and works in collaboration with the Education Coordinator (Dania) and Admin Manager (Taber). The House Manager also volunteers in the classrooms with the rest of the team but will have time built into their schedule for their managerial responsibilities.


    The two highest priorities of the House Manager are to (1) Support the safety and health of the volunteers by helping to maintain security and cleanliness protocols, and (2) Ensure that volunteers are behaving in ways that maintain the good reputation of Honduras Child Alliance within our community of El Porvenir. The House Manager will also help with welcoming and orienting new volunteers, facilitating a monthly social event for our Honduran interns and international volunteers to enjoy time together, reporting any needed repairs at the volunteer house, collaborating with the other managers on outreach activities, and more!
    Key skills needed:
    - Culturally aware, culturally sensitive, and culturally flexible. You will be working and living with people from many countries!
    - Sense of humor and sense of responsibility!
    - Good physical and mental health.
    - Energetic and upbeat personality.
    - Resilient and able to pivot when plans need to change quickly.
    - Excellent communication skills (both speaking and listening).
    - Intermediate level of English and Spanish.
    - Ability to identify a clean kitchen (even inside the refrigerators!) and to make and maintain a cleaning schedule for volunteers at the volunteer houses. (Note that the house is also professionally cleaned once each week.)
    - Able to ask for help: The House Manager has lots of support but we need to know if anything comes up.
    - A commitment to follow the guidelines and protocols at HCA and to understand and be able to explain to others why each rule is important.
