BECOME PART OF OUR TEAM
Advocate+ is run by a network of young leaders in both Sierra Leone and abroad and currently hosts 3 international Volunteer Services Overseas (VSO) interns.
We have international affiliations with development experts who offer trainings to build the capacity of staff and ensure effective project implementation. In addition, the organization works together with other local networks to share ideas, experiences and expertise, and promote development at the grassroots level
Advocate + was founded through collaboration of passionate individuals that strive to make a difference in Sierra Leone. We work on the basis that through collaboration, we can achieve better results.
Through consultation with local stakeholders, civil society and non-governmental organizations, we ensure local ownership of all our programs, sharing of best practices and constant learning and improvement at project- and organizational- levels.
Why not volunteer with us and see first hand the impact of our projects in Sierra Leone? Working together with VSO we have regular placements for international volunteers in our office in Bo.
