MISSION
LP4Y Digital Team
Contract: VSI – International Solidarity Volunteer
Location: India or the Philippines

LP4Y is looking towards the future, seeking the next steps to take to involve more and more Youth, people, communities, volunteers in the LP4Y movement to work as catalysts for a more included world. The LP4Y Digital initiative has been launched recently, in February 2019, so there is everything to build and that’s what makes the project exciting.

In this mission,  you will work closely with the LP4Y Digital Project Manager but also with all the +100 volunteers on the field (Philippines, India, Vietnam, Nepal, Indonesia…) and those in Europe/US.

The different missions of the Digital Support are:

  • Make our collaborative tools accessible and utilize properly by everyone (Google Drive, Gmail, social networks, video-conference tool, contact database…) and to develop them for better productivity of the team (volunteers and Youth).
  • Work with Information Technology (I.T) suppliers to equip new LP4Y centers with Computer room to allow youth to get access to the new technologies.
  • Develop an e-learning application by working with the LP4Y Digital Project Manager and with our I.T partners to allow distance training and to support the youth even in remote places (soft skills, career management, networking).

The need for digital is more and more important and the progression is even more spectacular in Asia. Here Young adults, LP4Y’s target, possess a smartphone despite of poverty. Hence, the obvious need to make Young adults very agile on all digital media.
