Volunteering with the Brigade

The VHC Medical Brigade offers both stateside and international volunteer experiences for students, clinicians and others who have a passion for healthcare, helping the poor and building relationships with local partners in the communities where we work in Honduras.

We seek development team volunteers to provide tactical support to carry out our development plan.

Development volunteers have a passion for and experience in strategic fundraising campaigns, events and donor/volunteer engagement. They are willing to engage personal and professional networks and fundraise on behalf of the Brigade, as well as provide project management and administrative support for activities. They may interact with vendors, manage timelines, and help to implement fundraising and marketing efforts.

These volunteers attend monthly development team meetings.

Of added benefit is if individuals have experience researching and applying for grants, whether foundation, private or governmental. These volunteers can spend time researching leads, discovering application requirements, and crafting content to respond to proposals. They also explore organizations doing similar work who might be open to applying for funding together or collaborating in other ways.
