Professionals with accounting expertise. We need you! Can you help a U.S. national-scope peacebuilding organization set up its accounting system?

Peace Through Action USA seeks a regular volunteer or volunteers to serve as our accounting adviser. The adviser will guide us through the establishment of our accounting system including its QuickBooks Plus Online account, transaction recording processes, reconciliation processes, financial statements preparation processes, and internal controls. Also, the adviser will coach the chief executive officer and board of directors on accounting oversight.

Our ideal adviser or advisers will possess expertise in setting up and training on accounting systems and a desire and time availability to lend their knowledge and experience to a start-up organization with big ambition, an unfolding mission delivery plan, and imminent accounting needs.

We seek an adviser or advisers who can give a meaningful block of time (at days and hours of their choice) over a period of weeks or months the adviser/advisers will need to set up the accounting system.

Peace Through Action USA is missioned to increase peace between people and within communities in the United States of America by promoting caring action. We activate and equip Americans to implement practical peaceful solutions to aggression and violence in their communities and our country. We are a national-scope, charitable, social capital-building organization.

Our current financial position does not yet require us to have more than a rudimentary accounting system. But we expect that to change soon, and we want to be ready!

This volunteer opportunity is well-suited for accounting professionals at the encore phase of their careers, consultants with available pro bono hours, or students of, graduates in, or practitioners of accounting or financial management looking for a first development experience or between jobs.

Help us be effective stewards of the gifts of money and other assets the public will soon be entrusting to us!
