Position Description

Marketing Mentor and Trainer – Youth Focus Organisation

• Help a developing youth NGO find sustainable income streams

• Share your marketing & fundraising skills

• Dynamic, exciting role in a young grassroots organisation

Action for Change Foundation (ACF) is a youth-owned and led NGO dedicated to providing Timorese youth with a pathway in life and to employment.  ACF works to provide unemployed young Timorese in Dili affordable educational courses, work experience placements and literary resources, and to engage Timorese children from vulnerable neighbourhoods in Dili in peace education through structured sports programs.

ACF has requested a volunteer to train a Marketing Trainee who will eventually take on the role of marketing independently, but who currently lacks the experience and capacity to do so.

If you are passionate about youth development and have a flair for imaginative marketing strategies, then this is the opportunity for you.  Challenge yourself and be rewarded!
