Latin America Manna Project Program Director Position Opening - Due February 1st, 2014

Dear UPS Students,
My name is Taylor Brown and I am the US Coordinator with Manna Project International ( I understand that the University of Puget Sound is a participating institution for the Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, an opportunity that offers college graduates a year of independent, purposeful exploration and travel.
Manna Project’s Program Director position may be another option for Puget Sound students looking for professional development and service opportunities in Latin America. MPI’s Program Director position in Guatemala, Ecuador and Nicaragua is ideal for recent graduates interested in international affairs, Spanish, education, health, sociology, anthropology, business or any other social service. We know that the University of Puget Sound encourages its graduating seniors to explore opportunities internationally, and we think that Manna Project International would be a great fit.  

Our next deadline for the Program Director position is February 1st, and I would be happy to give more information to any students interested by this opportunity. Below is information that you can forward to students who may find this opportunity exciting. To see why Manna is a great opportunity, check out our videos from current Program Directors (
