You will interact via voice, text, WhatsApp, email, and Zoom with vendors, volunteers, donors, individual Quakers, and yearly meeting representatives.

  • Three years related experience in nonprofit management, finance, or operations. Excellent organizational systems and attention to detail. We use GSuite, Constant Contact and DonorPerfect Online.
  • Competency in Spanish and English. Sensitivity to the wide range of spiritual practices and beliefs of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). Discretion, integrity, and respect for confidentiality.
  • Experience directing and working with volunteers to carry out program activities. Ability to build supportive relationships in a variety of cultural contexts. Flexibility to work some evenings and weekends, accommodating volunteer schedules. 


Salary range is $35,000-$45,000, based upon experience. This position is full-time (35 hour per week), exempt, with a flexible schedule including evenings and weekends. Generous benefits including four weeks paid vacation plus sick leave, health insurance (medical, vision, dental), long-term disability and life insurance, and employer contribution to a 403(b) retirement plan.

About Us

The Friends World Committee is a dynamic Quaker organization where you can make a real impact in advancing our mission of understanding and connection among Friends of diverse backgrounds. FWCC is the largest association of Quaker meetings in the Americas, across all the branches of Friends, from the Arctic to the Andes. For more information, visit www.fwccamericas.org.

We organize online and in-person opportunities for Quakers to learn new skills, deepen their faith,  and meet new Friends. In our administration, we aim to be fair, generous, sustainable, and transparent. Our board and all of our volunteer committees work bilingually in English and Spanish, and are theologically, culturally, and geographically diverse. 

Having just completed our ambitious strategic plan, Weaving the Tapestry 2015-2020, FWCC is now ready to move into the next phase of engaging Friends and religious seekers in our work. We are actively working through a scenario-based planning process to discern our way forward in the coming months and years. We were well-positioned to pivot during the Covid19 pandemic to serve Friends throughout the Americas in experimental programs consistent with our long-standing priorities.
