Manna Project International’s Program Directors (PDs) live and work on site in Guatemala, Nicaragua and Ecuador for 5-13 months with a team of other Program Directors. These teams of mostly recent college graduates work alongside community leaders to address each community’s specific needs. Program Directors utilize their education, passions, and interests to develop and sustain existing projects and to establish new projects. Our program is designed to create impactful, on-the-ground results while equipping our volunteers with the leadership development skills they need to continue their work in international development and/or within the greater non-profit sector after their service with MPI.

There are 5 primary roles for Program Directors:

  • Developing and running community programs
  • Managing organizational operations
  • Building relationships
  • Raising awareness
  • Hosting short-term volunteers & training incoming Program Directors
