Our personal volunteering bursaries provide up to £1,000 towards your living costs while you give up your time for others.
Whether you're working on a bigger project or have a new idea that an organisation can help you bring to life, this could be your chance to get a taste of a new career. If you're helping others, we can help you.
You'll need to be working with a recognized organisation for at least two weeks on a project that helps individuals living in low-income countries who are facing socio-economic challenges.
If you are interested in applying, please fill in the Volunteer Bursary Application Form. Please refer to the Application Guidelines below to check your eligibility before you apply.
If you are a professional who wants to share your skills in a new context, JOA can provide funding of up to £10,000 for extended placements abroad. The bursary can cover reasonable expenses from Jersey to country, living expenses and vaccinations but will not exceed £10,000.
Transferring knowledge and providing technical assistance is one of the most efficient forms of aid. It can also greatly benefit the individual who is sharing their skills– deepening proficiency, adding new perspectives and experience, and providing a great sense of professional satisfaction.
Maybe you’re a social worker who could support refugees, an accountant who can get a Nepali charity’s financial management in order, a physio who could train Rwandan colleagues on new techniques, or an IT expert who can take a social enterprise in Malawi to a new level. If you have an idea please contact us and we’ll discuss whether we can support it.
