We are looking for online volunteers to participate in the 5th session of the socialprotection.org Ambassadors Programme! This involves activities related to online content production and communications for the platform, which is hosted by the IPC-IG/UNDP. Ambassadors will have their profiles featured on socialprotection.org and receive a certificate for their participation. Each Ambassador will be assigned activities depending on their skill set and country/regional expertise. socialprotection.org is a member-based platform, meaning content is uploaded by members to support knowledge sharing and capacity building. For the 2018 Ambassadors Programme, the socialprotection.org team will assign and coordinate activities related to blog writing and copy editing.
