Community Hope Project

Hello Biology undergraduates. If you are looking for a great opportunity to be a part of a wonderful organization that will aid you in building your leadership and team working skills as well as a great opportunity to build resumes for applications to professional or graduate schools then here is your chance.

The Community Hope Project (CHP), an entirely volunteer, non-profit organization that partners with communities to foster justice, equality, opportunity, and well being, is currently accepting applications for several internship positions including:

-Finance Officer
-Project Coordinator(s)
-BioSand Water Filtration Project
-International Youth
-Special Events and Planning
-Women’s Microfinance Loan Program
-Public Relations Assistant
-Research Assistant

The Community Hope Project is currently partnering with the Hill Cut community in Sierra Leone to build physical infrastructure (schools, community centers and gardens, mini health clinics, etc.). We bring start-up resources (donations, microloans, educational scholarships), the energy and enthusiasm of international volunteers, and combine them with the sweat equity, expertise, strategies, and materials of local community members.

CHP invests and commits long term to the development and dignity of whole communities and their individual members. We build and nourish relationships, scaffold and support local social entrepreneurs, and create economic and educational opportunities that are socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable. In this way, we help foster local community cohesion, empowerment, and innovation. At the same time, we ourselves, and the local youth with whom we work, gain knowledge & wisdom, experience delight, and feel a deep, gratifying sense of being a part of something grand and transformative.
