Job Description

We're looking for a young-sounding voice to record a script for an animation that will be the center of our homepage www.operationgroundswell.com. We're hoping to have it be energetic, youthful and expressive - but not over the top or corny. We're on a tight budget but it's for a really good cause. The script is below...


We’re probably like you.

We were young, ambitious and eager to get away from our comfortable lives. We wanted to plunge headfirst into the world. We wanted to do it in a sustainable and authentic way but we weren’t exactly sure how.

We hoped to open our minds and get our hands dirty and we knew that “exotic” tours and guidebooks weren’t going to connect us with real people and places.

We were also poor students. Students paying tuition and rent, eating too much canned food, buying hundred dollar coursepacks we only read a few times and probably having too many nights out.

So, in 2006, we set out on a journey that changed many lives. We launched the first Operation Groundswell program in West Africa and have grown ever since.

Our teams respond to the needs of our local partners instead of imposing our own values. With their support, we’ve built watertanks and wells, houses and health clinics, taught about safe sex and saving the oceans.

Our story is the story of a new generation. A generation looking for meaningful genuine experiences that exist in the real world, not the virtual one. That’s why our teams are comprised of storytellers and jokers, architects and engineers.

These alumni keep on telling us that traveling the way we do changes a person forever. That’s why we’re not just trying to be a “big-box” travel company. We’re trying to spark a groundswell of support, a movement of globally active and committed backpackers.

Check it out and join us today.
