Default Volunteer Announcement

An opportunity to get work experience for young activists

The IFES is implementing Citizens Awareness and Participation in Armenia
(CAPA) project to empower the citizens of Armenia. The objective of this
4-year project, funded by the USAID, is to increase citizen participation in
governance through the dissemination of information and by encouraging civic
initiatives and advocacy. This project strives to promote a more
transparent, responsive and democratic government by building the knowledge
base and organizing capabilities of community members, and by improving
their ability to communicate with authorities through the promotion of
inter-sectoral dialogues between local residents, authorities, business, and
non-commercial organizations.

Within the framework of IFES' original CAPA project, IFES has developed a
sustainable CAPA Network, comprised of a new indigenous civic education NGO
with 8 regional branches - the Center for Community Dialogues and
Initiatives (CCDI). The IFES and its sub grantee - CCDI with its Civic
Educators Corps, which includes 22 instructors in eight regions of the RA
(Yerevan, Kotayk, Armavir, Aragatsotn, Lori, Shirak, Gegharkunik and Syunik)
are jointly implementing the CAPA project.

The IFES branch in Armenia (IFES/Armenia) and the Center for Community
Dialogues and Initiatives (CCDI) head office are seeking for young
volunteers, who will support IFES/Armenia and CCDI staff and instructors in
