We are running an initiative which is focused on training refugees and host community members in Dadaab, Kenya in online freelancing and providing them with market access support. This includes helping freelancers build a profile on Upwork.

We need a remote mentor, who will supervise 15-20 participants throughout the entire Bootcamp, following a clear strategy provided by the initiative. The work will be carried out under supervision and guidance by the Bootcamp Coordinator and with support from the Mentorship Coordinator (we are team players and like to interact openly on a continuous basis).

The Bootcamp will run for approximately 4-6 weeks, starting in the middle of February. Here’s what you need to know:

Responsibilities & Tasks:

– Creating a mock-up job and job post for the test job offered to the participants.
– Mentor the participants and provide directions to participants on each task (searching jobs, applying for the test job, answering written interview questions, delivering the job, and asking for payment) and ensuring that they complete the tasks successfully at an acceptable quality-level.
– Provide thorough evaluations to the participants after each task via templates provided by the initiative.
– Guide the participants on improving their work until successful completion
– Reporting on the progress of each task via a template that will be provided.
– Coach the participants that may have to repeat a task several times until the work has been satisfactorily done.


– Minimum of five years of experience working on Upwork in the field of Web Design.
– Keen interest in helping others for the common good, preferable demonstrated through experience in volunteer work.
– Fluency in English. Knowledge of Swahili and/or Somali is a plus.
