GET INVOLVED

Want to help create lasting change by donating your time a few hours a week to help join the fight to end malnutrition? Check out the volunteer opportunities below (All inquires without a link attached should be sent to neem.nonprofit@gmail.com):

REGISTERED DIETITIAN TEAM LEAD

NEEM’s humanitarian trips are led by a team of qualified Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs). For each trip there are approximately 2-3 RDs. They are the ones who make NEEM what it is. They receive extensive training upon selection. Team leads work closely with team members to welcome them and prepare them for their in-country experience. In country, they act as a liaison between NEEM and our in-country partners. To become a team lead, international travel and leadership experience is required. Previous experience on a NEEM humanitarian trip prior to becoming a team lead is preferred, but not required. As a team lead, your program fee will be discounted or covered. This experience is great for all Registered Dietitians alike to network, and become professionals in this area of work.
