Get Involved

Business & Technical Volunteers

Do you have expertise in a technical area of business? MEDA occasionally recruits individuals for short-term business/technical expert volunteer roles with our projects around the world. These opportunities are for experienced individuals who would like to make an impact using their business and/or technical skills in an international development context. Positions vary based on the needs of our projects and clients and may be virtual, in-person or a hyrbid model.

Available volunteer opportunities can be found on our careers page.

MEDA Network Volunteers

Are you an entrepreneur, young professional or student that is passionate about international development or agriculture and wants to connect with other local businesspeople? Consider becoming a Network Hub volunteer to help further MEDA’s mission to create business solutions to poverty through organizing various fundraising events and activities. Create connections that focus on poverty alleviation, inequality, entrepreneurship, and corporate social responsibility.

All are welcome to get involved in a Network Hub who share similar values. These events create local networking opportunities and raise awareness on MEDA’s global work. Join or start a Network Hub today in your community!
