The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund is an organization created in 1946 to help children in post war of Europe but have spread to help the needs of children in other developing countries. This organization is interesting because it helps children with the basic needs of life such as food, education, shelter, medicine, etc. They also believe that helping children now helps the future of society (United Nations Children's Fund, n.d.). They are currently hiring for a street fundraiser deputy manager for 13-15 pounds per hour in the United Kingdom. The deputy manager will help launch a national campaign. The potential employee must have two years of experience with face to face fundraising as part of a team. They must demonstrate their experience training and developing other fundraisers and team leaders. Also, they should knowledge of compliance and standards. This job is interesting because it makes the public aware of what children are going through around the world. Without the money these children may not get the opportunities that they need to thrive. I would need to develop my selling skills to sell people on the street to give to a worthy cause (UNICEF Jobs, n.d.).
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization creates opportunities for communications between civilizations and communities around the world. They make sure they have shared values and create dialogue for communities to speak and understand one another’s culture and goals for their society. I think this is very important. People around the world usually have things in common. Everyone wants to live in peace and have a well life. If we all can understand that then we can get along better. Many countries have different languages so there are translators that can bridge this gap of misunderstandings (United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, 2011). There is a job available in Paris for Program Specialist $90,640 a year salary. The duties include coordinating and creating programs for ecological and earth sciences, water sciences, and science policy. Obviously I do not have background in the science such as these but it can be very important for the environment for children. However, I do love researching and coordinating (Program Specialist, n.d.).
In the state of Georgia, early childhood educators are required to obtain 10 hours of training per year. These trainings have to be approved by the state and taught by an approved trainer. However, most centers have their teachers train online where they can just click through the training and call themselves trained. No! We need better ongoing trainers in the field. I want to become a trainer that motivates and inspire teachers for the betterment of themselves and the children because a lot of teachers have emotional issues that they need to work through themselves in order to be an effective teacher. An approved trainer is self-employed. They work independently or they could work as a team under a company. I plan to develop my own ECE training company. I will need to first become an approved trainer. The requirements are as follows to become a Trainer 1: bachelor degree in ECE or Child Development or 225 clock hours, take Trainer for Trainers I 40 hour class, and at least 3 years of early care and education experience. I have the degree and the 225 clock hours. After this degree program, I will take the Training for Trainer Course (Trainer Designation Requirements, n.d.).
