Volunteer Positions with Rationale
We are happy to announce that we are expanding our team! We are seeking motivated, creative individuals who are committed to furthering Rationale’s mission.
(Some of our staff in Gulu)
Rationale works to improve access to education among vulnerable youth in northern Uganda by building community-driven scholarship programs. Our current partnership is with St. Jude Children’s Home in Gulu, Uganda. Together we have created a scholarship program that supports secondary and university students while simultaneously investing in their food security farm which provides agricultural skills-training for our scholarship recipients as well as essential, nutritious meals for younger children still living at the home.
Rationale is currently seeking: a communications & operations volunteer, a grant & research volunteer, working group members, and fundraising volunteers.
Below is an outline of each position:
Communications and Operations Volunteer
Grant and Research Volunteer
Working Group Members (1-2 meetings per month, ~2 hours per meeting)
*we are looking for working group members in Chicago, IL and St. Louis, MO! *
Group members will be responsible for meeting once or twice a month to brainstorm how to best promote Rationale, develop fundraisers, or discuss issues related to Rationale’s programs in Uganda. The discussions will be wide-ranging and critical in nature, resembling more of a discussion group than an organizational meeting. A primary goal of this group is to ensure that our work consistently remains in line with our name and our mission.
Fundraising Volunteers (time commitment varies)
We value critical dialogue and an inclusive working environment. All of our staff are 100% volunteer. Individuals interested in the above positions need to be highly motivated with the ability to communicate with other members through email or phone on a consistent basis and work successfully without a central office.
If you are interested in any of these positions we would love to hear from you! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, using the position’s title in the subject line. Please include a brief description of why you are interested in the position as well as a bit about your background (a CV/resume can also suffice).
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
