VOLUNTEER POSITION

Position: Peru Marketing Coordinator
Type: international volunteer position, 3-6 month commitment
Organization: Mosqoy
Location: Cusco, Peru, South America

General Description

Are you a social media whiz that wants to use your knowledge to support an important cause? Love photography, and want to fill your portfolio with gorgeous photos of Andean weaving communities? Is it time for a break from the ordinary? This is your chance to discover an incredible region, learn or improve your Spanish, and contribute your skills in a truly meaningful way.

Mosqoy’s Marketing Coordinator is an exciting office and field-based position that involves coordinating the marketing efforts of a Peruvian-Canadian grassroots charitable organization. The Marketing Coordinator is an integral part of Mosqoy, connecting the work of the organization to our supporters around the world. By helping us grow our network of supporters, your work will have a direct impact on supporting indigenous youth and woman weavers.

Mosqoy is a registered Canadian charitable organization that works in remote communities of the Peruvian Andes, offering opportunities for economic development while nurturing the threatened indigenous Quechua culture. We operate three main programs: the Q’ente Textile Program, which supports indigenous communities and women weavers by revitalizing textile traditions; the T’ikary Youth Program, which offers promising youth of the region opportunities for post-secondary education; and the Mink’a Knowledge Exchange Program, which aims to raise global awareness and responsibility in schools and universities in North America through courses and presentations, and through our Field School in Peru. Throughout all of our programs, we focus on building capacity by offering a hand-up, not a hand-out. For more information, please visit http://www.mosqoy.org or http://www.facebook.com/mosqoy.

If you are passionate about connecting with communities digitally; photography, videography, and/or writing; not-for-profits and social enterprises; and working abroad with a culturally diverse team, then this could be the ideal position for you!
