Applications for Connecting HR Africa are now LIVE!
Are you an HR / L&D professional looking to take part in a unique CSR opportunity? Retrak are looking for an exceptional group of individuals to travel to Uganda to empower our staff and the homeless children they support.
Retrak works to transform lives and provide positive futures for the world’s most vulnerable children who live, work and sleep on the streets. For the last two years, Retrak Uganda have hosted volunteer teams made up of HR professionals from across the UK and further afield. During their visits, volunteers have applied their industry specific and personal skills to leave a lasting impact on both the staff and young people of Retrak. They have also helped to leave a lasting legacy on our organisation through raising funds and supporting the sustainable development our projects.
This September, we are thrilled to once again offer the opportunity for HR professionals to make a huge difference to the children and staff at our projects. Participants will travel to Uganda where they will divide their time between engaging with our young people through confidence building activities and crafts, in addition to building the capacity of staff through coaching, leadership training and workshops. Participants will apply their individual skills and experience to create these sessions as a team, to deliver in groups of 3 or 4. As a result, we warmly welcome applications from individuals who have applicable skills and experience, such as working with young people or designing and delivering workshops.
