Taking part in this volunteer programme will develop core competencies of your team, strengthen internal networks and showcase your company’s values in action.
This will also give more junior staff the opportunity to develop leadership, management and interpersonal skills in a truly unique environment, outside of their comfort zone.

LOCATION: Sierra Leone
DURATION: 10 Days
DATES: 1-11 April 2018
We are looking for individuals or corporate teams with computer and/or data skills to help build the capacity of our teams on the ground in Sierra Leone. During this 10 day programme, volunteers will travel between Street Child's urban and rural stations, working closely alongside our programmes team to support our local staff in developing key skills.
This is a unique opportunity for corporate volunteers to not only contribute to a children's charity, but also develop their own skills in leadership, teamwork, resourcefulness and problem-solving in a challenging environment. You will be pushing boundaries and discovering new strengths that will remain with you long after.
