Accion’s Ambassadors Volunteer Program sends dedicated individuals to partner institutions to experience the impact that microfinance, impact investing, and financial education can have on the lives of the working poor. The program is individually funded and offers volunteers unique exposure to the work of Accion’s partners in the field.
Volunteers are typically placed at microfinance institutions, NGOs, fintech startups, and Accion’s programs in China, Guatemala, India, Mexico, Paraguay, Tanzania, United States, Zambia, and other countries as opportunities arise. Although the focus of a typical assignment is to document experiences in the field through blogging, photography, and social media, Ambassadors may be tasked with a variety of activities, from working in Human Resources to performing financial analyses.
