RE: APPLICATION FOR THE POSITION OF UN VOLUNTEER
Drawing my inspiration from the belief that volunteerism is a powerful way of engaging people in tackling development challenges, I hereby wish to express my interest in the volunteer programme you currently have.
As a recent graduate in Project Management, I have acquired technical expertise during my internships with ABC International NGO. I was tasked with the duties of helping the project coordinator run all projects smoothly as well as contract drafting.
(NOTE: Not sure where to get started on your cover letter? Check our NEWLY UPDATED cover letter template for NGOs for FREE! You can copy and paste this proven sample to create a lasting impression and get invited to the interview right away. Get it here.)
I also gained valuable experience in project and resource management more so on volunteer management. Apart from that, I have amassed skills in data collection and my communication and networking skills are impeccable which is evident in the newsletter samples I have attached to my application.
I believe I can contribute my time, skills and knowledge through volunteer action to create a significant force in achieving peace and development.
Enclosed herewith is a copy of my CV for your consideration. I can be contacted through 0799-999999
