There are many different ways to get involved with the work of Assist International.
Volunteer on a Humanitarian Project
Every year we plan one or more humanitarian projects that require volunteers from the U.S. These projects provide a rewarding and exciting opportunity for people in the U.S. to help some of the world’s most vulnerable people.
Projects vary in location and type. Examples include building and painting orphan homes in Romania and volunteering at orphanages and primary schools in Uganda. On average, these projects last around 10 days total. While volunteers must cover their own expenses, a team from Assist International leads the project and arranges all trip details, including logistics, transportation, lodging, etc.
If you, or a group you are affiliated with (such as college groups, service-oriented clubs, church groups, etc.), are interested in volunteering on a project, please send an email to [email protected].
Volunteer in the US
Often, we need volunteers to help us in various tasks at our Scotts Valley or Ripon Office. Here are some examples of ways to get involved:
- Volunteer to help sell jewelry made by women in Africa
- Volunteer to help sort and mail newsletters
- Volunteer in the warehouse
