Volunteers would either provide support at the PS Centre, or from their own office or home.

Currently we are looking for:

  • certified translators of Arabic, Spanish, French and Russian, who can assist us with translations from English and proof reading
  • fundraising volunteers
  • volunteers who own a camera and are skilled in taking photos and/or video footage of psychosocial activities
  • writers who are interested in contributing articles about psychosocial support to the PS Centre web site.

If you are interested in volunteering with the PS Centre, please send us your CV and a letter explaining your background and how you think you can help to psychosocial.centre@ifrc.org.
