UK Ambassadors

Volunteer role unpaid - 8 hours a week, based in the UK

Deadline 15th June 2018

Our Ambassador Scheme is an exciting opportunity that offers the chance for university students to train, lead and develop with East African Playgrounds.
If you have a drive to work hard, have fun and succeed this could be the role for you.
We’ll put you in the driving seat of one of our projects; the Gorilla Trek or Uganda Volunteer Project. Becoming an EAP Ambassador takes you beyond volunteering, leading you to become an upskilled, highly experienced fundraiser and people manager (plus much more) by the end of the scheme.

We have partnerships at Universities across the UK, so as long as you are at a UK university and are over 18 then you are eligible to apply.
