Help significantly those affected by the earthquake in Haiti. Contribute to the development and implementation of Project Perpetual Help Haiti. Become a member of the newly established CTF-SOS DRS community in Port au Prince where we live, work and worship together.

CTF-SOS DRS is an international, Catholic, non-profit disaster relief organization based in both Rome, Italy and Milwaukee, Wisconsin (http://sosdrs.org/).

CTF-SOS DRS is presently planning and implementing several relief programs in Haiti. The organization seeks a person who is people-oriented, hardworking, trustworthy, and a team player who will serve as an assistant project coordinator. 

This person will work under the supervision of the project coordinator, Fr. Scott Binet, or his vicar. As such he or she will help develop and implement relief programs and supervise project personnel. 

Required is an ability to use the English language well (written and verbal); creativity, good people skills, some management experience, computer software skills (MS Word and Excel at a minimum); good health; a minimum stay in Haiti of 2 months. 

The assistant project coordinator must show a willingness to live the mission of CTF-SOS DRS as attested to by reading and signing the volunteer contract and the document outlining the rights and responsibilities of a community member.

Very helpful would be a knowledge of French and/or the Kreyol language; previous missionary experience.

An initial interview will be conducted by telephone or in person if possible. The volunteer applicant will be expected to submit a CV (curriculum vitae) prior to the interview. Once accepted, the applicant will undergo a brief period of orientation/preparation and then fly to Port au Prince, Haiti to reside in the community. Expenses related to travel, room and board will be covered by CTF-SOS DRS. Personal expenses will be the responsibility of the volunteer. With time the position may involve financial compensation. If there are any questions about the position, please e-mail Fr. Scott at fatherscott@ctfmercy.org or call him on SKYPE – fr.scottbinet.
