We are always touched and appreciative when someone approaches Contra Nocendi International to volunteer. We understand that everyone’s time is valuable and that is important to understand how special it is to have people willing to donate their time to help support the aims and goals of Contra Nocendi International. We generally focus on what we like to refer to as recruiting “experteers”. This is when an interested person with notable professional experience in a certain field is willing to donate their time and skills within the specific field to help meet a specific need for Contra Nocendi International or to volunteer their knowledge and expertise as a volunteer consultant. Short term experteer positions, when available, will be listed on the United Nations Volunteers Online Volunteering Service. Links to our opportunities on the UNV Online Volunteering Service will be provided here as they become available. More longer term experteer opportunities, when they are available, are generally listed on our website and on Idealist.
We do this to centralise our volunteer recruiting process in order to make sure the process is conducted in an objective manner and in line with our operating principle of non-discrimination. The service also affords us the opportunity to provide certificates of appreciation for volunteers who complete a minimum commitment as well as potentially allowing us to nominate exceptional volunteers for UNV awards. For longer term voluntary service, we try to individualize the recognition of the person. Please note that all experteer/volunteer opportunities are applied for and undertaken with a clear understanding that Contra Nocendi is not currently in a position to provide any remuneration of any kind for volunteers. Most volunteer opportunities will be available remotely unless otherwise expressly noted in the relevant volunteer opportunity announcement.
We are currently working on a restructuring of our internship program for the Summer and Fall semesters. Contra Nocendi International will administer its internship programme directly and will apply appropriate recruitment and educational support for the Contra Nocendi Cameroon internship program. Full details will be provided as soon as they are finalised. Please note that Contra Nocendi and Contra Nocendi Cameroon are not in the position to provide any remuneration or financial support of any kind in relation to internships. Depending on the available resources of Contra Nocendi Cameroon at the time of the internship, support may be provided in organising accommodation in Buea and transport from Douala to Buea. Details of any internship will be clearly communicated to perspective interns early in the process. We suggest that potential interns do not make any purchases and incur any expenses related to their potential internship with Contra Nocendi and/or Contra Nocendi Cameroon prior to the execution of an internship agreement.
There are may be many areas of expertise which could be beneficial to Contra Nocendi
