speak for ukraine project manager

Location: Lisbon or Porto

Our mission is to contribute to inclusive cities where everyone feels at home and where diversity is championed. We do this by connecting refugees with locals living in the same city through language groups, where everyone can apply to learn and/or share their language and culture, and community-organized events.

In the face of continued war in Ukraine and the fact that over 2 million people have left the country, we want to make sure that they can find all the support they need in the new countries they are currently living in. To help us reach this goal, we launched a new platform, SPEAK For Ukraine, and we are looking for someone that can enhance the impact of this initiative.

That’s where you come in — your job will be to connect refugees and host organizations with volunteers that are willing to share their language, culture and more. If you are a project manager full of grit, ready to change the world, and want to be part of SPEAK’s mission, this job might just be perfect for you.
