About the Place:


LIFE School is a non-profit experimental school in Panajachel, Guatemala, on the shores of beautiful Lake Atitlan. Our mission is to provide quality education to the children of our community. Many of our children come from families with very few resources, and we see our school as a path to future opportunities for them. 


About the role:

The Development Coordinator would be principally in charge of fundraising for the school. We are looking for someone with experience in non-profit event planning, grant writing, or general fundraising. It would be crucial that this person has strong connections in the USA, as we would want this role to organize and coordinate events and fundraising activities multiple times in the USA. They would also need to organize events here in Panajachel, where they would be based, in order to keep the name of the school present in the community. Grant proposals, event- planning, and the logistics involved in fundraising are each a big part of the role.


About you:

Experience in the non-profit world preferred

Experience fundraising/event planning

Understanding of fundraising and social media platforms such as Instagram, gofundme, paypal, etc

A self-starter

Ability to work as a part of a team but also very independent

Highly ethical, with a desire to contribute hard work in order to make an impact where it is needed


This position is available to be filled as of the time of posting, and pays a salary that provides a comfortable quality of life in Panajachel. It is rewarding work, as we can see our impact on a daily basis in the delightful children that we educate.
