African Programs Staff

African Programs Staff are EWB’s long-term volunteers working to create change in Africa. These are primarily professionals or university graduates who have committed anywhere from 12 to 20+ months to work on EWB’s programs in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Malawi and Zambia.

Our volunteer staff are placed with one of our sector initiatives in Africa and will work closely with African partner organisations. Each sector initiative focuses their results in different areas, and each placement takes a different form, but all involve capacity development of our African partners. This might involve building a partner’s monitoring and evaluation system, piloting a new project with a small team or training field staff. It is important to EWB that our staff do not merely work in the development sector, but also change the development sector.

Affrican Program Staff openings come up periodically.  If you are interested in applying for an African Programs Staff position please contact us at edmonton@ewb.ca.  More information can also be found here.
