Street Child is currently searching for volunteers who are looking to gain experience in the International Development sector, to become a key part of our teams in country through a research role.
121 million school-aged children are currently out of education worldwide, mainly in the worlds poorest, most fragile and disaster-hit countries. Millions more children are in school but failing to learn. Street Child recognizes that barriers to education are complex and interlinked and our projects focus on a combination of education, child protection and livelihoods support to address the social, economic and structural issues that underpin today's learning crisis.
As a research volunteer you will be involved in overseeing the research and implementation of current and future projects. We offer placements for five to twelve weeks, supporting work in our country offices as well as in the field when required, where we collaborate with local partner organisations.
You will gain experience in researching and developing grant proposals, creating research papers based on collected field data, liaising with local partners and stakeholders and other aspects that are involved in running development projects on the ground.
