The American Liaison Network and Citizen Liaison Volunteers
The American Liaison Network (ALN), formerly known as the “Consular Warden Program”, is a key component of the U.S. Embassy in Sudan’s effort to ensure the safety and security of U.S. citizens in Sudan. As a Citizen Liaison Volunteer (CLV), you have an important role in helping the U.S. Embassy keep the U.S. citizen community informed and, in extraordinary circumstances, helping the U.S. Embassy to deliver emergency services to U.S. citizens.
The American Citizen Services Unit is in the process of expanding its American Liaison Network (ALN) of Citizen Liaison Volunteers (CLV) to effectively communicate with U.S. citizens in Sudan. We are looking for volunteers to serve as CLVs in various regions of Sudan, particularly in smaller cities and rural areas, which can be the hardest places to reach in an emergency. CLVs must be fluent in English, and ideally in Arabic, and have a good familiarity with the U.S. citizen community in their region. Please note that this is a voluntary position that does not have any financial compensation or reimbursement.
If you would like to be a CLV, or if you are not a U.S citizen but are interested in being a CLV, please provide us with your full name as it appears in your passport, date of birth, passport number, and your contact details via email at KhartoumCLV@state.gov. Once you notify us of your interest, we will get back to you with more information and further instructions.
