Jersey Overseas Aid (JOA) is the Island’s official, publicly-funded relief and development agency.
JOA offers the unique opportunity to volunteer overseas with fellow islanders which encourages personal development as well as bringing lasting benefits to poor and vulnerable peoples.
Key to JOA’s Volunteer Programme is its ability to raise awareness in Jersey of global issues and lead to lasting connections with communities all over the world.
Applications are open annually, with typically two to three trips on offer every year. To find out more about which projects are happening this year and how you can apply, please visit our website: https://joa.je/get-involved/
How could the Community Jobs Fund help your charity.
The Community Jobs Fund Back to Work initiative matches suitable jobseekers to roles with a community benefit. We pay the wages of an eligible candidate recruited by an employer into a role of up to six months.
The role must provide:
- the candidate with skills and experience
- a tangible benefit to the wider community
