Program Duration

2-4 Weeks, 5-8 Weeks, 9-12 Weeks, 3-6 Months, 7-12 Months


The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month


Volunteers must be 18 or older and have a love of working with young children. Prior experience in working with young children is not necessary, but will certainly be an asset to those who have worked with young kids in the past.

A mandatory police check is required to be completed by all volunteers prior to their project start. This check is to be completed by a volunteer's national government or records office. Obviously, only volunteers with a clean record will be allowed to participate in the project.

As with any project, in working with children abroad, volunteers are required to be flexible, patient, willing to work and ready to have fun.
