Please RSVP for lunch.
What do we do: We foster communities of talented young leaders to become the next generation of social change agents by engaging in collaborative, on-the-ground service with international communities in need.
Manna Project International (MPI) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization where young professionals can apply their passions, experience, and education through service to communities in need. With the vision of communities serving communities, MPI’s model is a collaborative community-based approach to development. At our sites in Ecuador and Nicaragua, groups of year-long volunteers live and work together implementing a range of education, health and livelihood community development programs.
Program Directors (PDs) run the day-to-day operations of MPI’s community programs on the ground in Ecuador and Nicaragua. PDs live and work together with a team of 6-12 other individuals. These teams are comprised of young professionals and recent college graduates who work alongside local leaders to address each community’s specific needs. Program Directors utilize their education, passions, and interests to develop and sustain existing programs and to establish new projects. As a Program Director, you will receive experience in international development, program design, implementation of new projects, grant writing, nonprofit administration, fundraising, social media, public relations, and donor relations.
