The bimonthly EntreMundos Revista focuses on human rights and development issues. Each edition is 24-pages, with a circulation of 2000 copies throughout Quetzatenango and the Guatemalan highlands. The magazine's mission is to highlight the work of different local projects and issues, to ultimately provide a space that serves as an educational tool, one that is "open for discussion and exposition of the social themes that affect Guatemala as a country." This is done through analytical social journalism and commentary that humanizes the problems currently faced by Guatemala.

EntreMundos is a capacity-building NGO that works with local projects and organizations in Guatemala to increase their institutional capacities. Within its larger mission, the 'Revista' is based on the principle of inclusion, respect to differences and solidarity.

JOB DESCRIPTION:

A magazine volunteer´s responsibilities will be to support and contribute to the mission of EntreMundos Revista. This volunteer opportunity is part-time (from 1 hour a day up until desired amount of hours), and will largely be performed independently. Responsibilities can include, but are not limited to: Developing a digital photo bank comprised of images found online. Traveling within the rural and urban area to take photos of the area, volunteers, and organizations with which EntreMundos works. Writing articles of interest for the volunteer.

Participating in the printing process and master copy review. Delivery of magazines throughout Quetzaltenango. Researching fundraising options and writing proposals. Other administrative support to the EntreMundos team, as needed. Thus, much of the work of this volunteer opportunity can be performed remotely from a location outside of Guatemala, if preferred.
