Volunteer with AMOS

“Volunteers play an important role at AMOS. It’s all about collaboration, sharing our strengths, and learning
from each other.”

~ Dr. Laura Parajón, AMOS Medical Director

Urban Program Volunteer

The Urban Program Volunteer serves to enhance our ongoing programs in our Samaritan Clinic and in the community of Nejapa, where our campus is located. We provide medical support and specialized services like ultrasounds, lab services and trainings that focus on health education.

The Urban Program Volunteer will work closely with these groups of medical professionals and with our Health Educators (Consejeras) developing strategies to improve the health of the people in the community and prevent diseases.

Rural Mission Teams Volunteer

AMOS works year round with dozens of short-term team service trips coming to work alongside us in Nicaragua to reach a shared goal of bringing health and hope to all people. Our work is not possible without them, and we need volunteers like you to make these trips a success.

As a delegations volunteer you would become a part of our Delegations Team in coordinating and leading these groups into having a great overseas experience as they come work alongside us. You will spend time working in our Managua offices prepping for a trip, traveling to the communities to build relationships with community members and hearing what needs they have, and facilitating cross-cultural interactions to help form lasting relationships and positive change.

Your involvement in a rotation with AMOS will provide you with first hand experience working in urban communities that lack of access to health care. In the clinic you will have the opportunity to shadow our current professionals and support our health educators.
