The National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) is seeking a temporary Project Assistant to help in the development and implementation of our innovative new program, Africa Rural Connect (ARC).
The ARC Project is an online work collaboration website designed to encourage development work in Africa by drawing on the skills and talents of the African Diaspora, current and returned Peace Corps volunteers, as well as other individuals with development experience on the continent. The website will launch in June and aims to attract tens of thousands of users and their ideas, and will feature a business plan competition to spur creative and practical content generation.
The ARC Project Assistant will assist the ARC Project Manager with responsibilities associated with the website that may include research, communications, participation in strategic planning sessions, and other web-related tasks as assigned.
The ideal candidate will have significant computer skills including some experience working with databases, editing websites and troubleshooting technical problems. He or she should be creative, self-motivated, committed to the goals of the Project, and willing to work in a highly collaborative environment. In addition, the Project Assistant should have ties to the African continent, either as a Peace Corps volunteer or equivalent experience.
