Arts Council of Mongolia (ACM) had several projects implemented successfully and gained extensive experience in the implementation of community-based arts education projects. Since 2016, ACM implemented the “Re-Imagine Mongolia” arts impact project that aims to support disadvantaged women by providing eco-friendly art of “papier-mâché” training, mentor-ship and the opportunity to present their craft to the public. Although ACM gained a lot of experience in the implementation of short-term projects in the communities, local staff need more expertise and skills to enhance the sustainability of projects engaging cross-sector partnerships. The volunteer will be involved in the design and trialing of interventions that focus on the development of community-based social enterprises, improving women’s enterprising tendencies and employable skills for improved labor market participation.
