ARCHELON, a nonprofit conservation organization active since 1983, runs a number of volunteer projects for the protection of sea turtles and their habitats in Greece every year. More than 500 International volunteers per year participate in our projects, including about 25 field leaders. Every year we are entering in internship agreements with 70 Universities and other educational establishments from all over the world.
For 2020 ARCHELON is offering opportunities for field leaders.
A limited number of experienced and skilled volunteers is selected to become Field leaders for our projects. Field Leaders are responsible for leading the teams and ensuring the proper on- site implementation of sea turtle monitoring actions (Monitoring Field leaders), public awareness actions (Public Awareness Field Leaders) and the good state of ARCHELONs Research Stations (Camp and Volunteer Coordinators). Collaboration between the Field Leaders is essential for the smooth operation of each project. Together they formulate the weekly schedule (rota), boost the motivation of volunteers and manage occurring problems in cooperation with the Project Coordinators for the specific site.
To be eligible, you need to be over 20 years old, with a car driving license, fluent in English and ready to spend from 2 – 6 months on the site, depending on the project.
The deadline for submitting an application and a short Curriculum Vitae for the 2020 season is 30th November 2019. The selection is expected to be finalized until 30 March 2020.
