Virtual Volunteer Opportunities in Trinidad and Tobago


Greetings and Welcome to 2021!

Although travel restrictions are still in effect, there are opportunities to volunteer internationally virtually through USAID’s Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) project in Trinidad and Tobago. During the COVID-19 pandemic, how we implement the F2F program has had to adjust and is temporarily offering virtual/remote assignments that will meet the needs of Trinbagonians. Over the holiday break, the Purdue F2F team has been working hard to get new assignments approved and posted. These assignments will pair a local (Trinbagonian) volunteer with a US volunteer to collaborate throughout the duration of the assignment. We’re interested in faculty, staff, and graduate students who have the skills!

We are currently recruiting volunteers for the following assignments. If you have questions, please contact me.

  1. Development and Fundamentals of a Successful Cooperative
  2. Online Sales of Fresh Produce and Processed Goods
  3. Intro to Online Sales Platforms
  4. Climate Smart Irrigation Methods
  5. Organic Cocoa Farming System
