We are currently interviewing candidates for 2020/2021 placements
Opportunities for Supporting Our COVID-19 Response: Given the COVID-19 pandemic, field deployments have been put on standby for 2020. In the meantime, our New York and country teams are working hard to respond to this crisis and need your help.
Please apply for New York internships and remote volunteering opportunities, if you would like to contribute to our COVID-19 response without leaving your home. We are currently also interviewing applicants for field placements for early 2021, as we know that the need for health and clinical professionals is going to be even larger when rebuilding efforts begin.
Becoming a Volunteer: Start by completing the online application available at cmmb.org/volunteer. CMMB staff will review your application and schedule a personal interview if your background and skill set meet our needs.
CMMB is constantly seeking undergraduate and graduate students available to intern for a minimum of 150 hours (flexible) and for experienced professionals who can support our programs virtually. Domestic volunteers do not have to meet the international age, licensure, or financial contribution requirements, and do not receive program benefits outlined below.
Benefits of Volunteering: Each international volunteer who serves six months or longer in the field receives the following:
- A round-trip ticket to their placement site
- A monthly stipend
- Insurance coverage
- Storytelling and fundraising training
- The opportunity to contribute to vital community development initiatives for under served populations while building a longstanding legacy for the community.
- If accepted, all international volunteers also participate in a 3-day pre-departure orientation in New York City.
Financial Contribution: All field volunteers are required to fund raise to help offset the cost of their experience, and cover travel costs to and from the pre-departure orientation in NYC. The fundraising target is $5,000 and volunteers are required to raise a minimum of $3,500 prior to departure for their volunteer placement site. Fundraising tools and training provided.
