Default Work-Study Volunteers needed to help children in Indonesia

The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is seeking forward-thinking, dynamic individuals of all ages/backgrounds to contribute to our international centers as part of our Volunteer Work-Study Program in Indonesia. IHF runs education centers in Bali, Medan, Jakarta and Banda Aceh, Indonesia. As a Work-Study Volunteer, you would complete four hours of local work and four hours of international work a day alongside an international staff dedicated to global development and helping children have access to more opportunities. You will have substantial responsibilities and be a valued part of a grassroots not-for-profit NGO at the ground level.

Local tasks vary from center to center, day to day. You will teach English to young students for whom English is a tool to secure better jobs in the future. You will also provide the co-Directors with needs-based assistance in the daily maintenance of the centers, becoming a part of the IHF family and integral to the work we do.

For your international tasks, you will be assigned teams made up of volunteers from other centers and you will work on administrative tasks for not just the center you are staying in, but for the whole organization. Your tasks may include producing media content, assisting with fundraising efforts and generating online outreach efforts to promote our organization’s goals and projects. This is a great opportunity to experience the overall management of an international organization and receive training in a multi-level, multifaceted work environment. Before arrival at the center, you will already become a part of the team by completing pre-trip tasks with our international teams to gain an understanding of the kind of work you will be doing.

Our foundation­ is run entirely by volunteers just like you, who have made commitments ranging from 2 weeks to multiple years. You will be supervised and guided by long-term volunteer co-Directors at your center, who will listen to your ideas and work with you on a daily basis.

Candidate Qualifications: You must be fluent in written and spoken English. We value volunteers who­ are creative and innovative, willing to take responsibility and easily adapt to new conditions and unexpected situations. ­ Each IHF center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host country. So must our staff. Our volunteers must have high inter­-cultural sensitivity and be tolerant to different views and ways of life.

Work-Study Volunteers stay for a minimum of four weeks. We provide basic accommodation and food at our centers, where you will live with your co-workers. Unfortunately, as a nonprofit, we are unable to provide these amenities freely and we charge a minimal cost of $55 ­/ $75 per week. We are not able to cover travel or insurance expenses or any other related costs, but we will help you with your travel and visa planning. We will also try to comply with guidelines to secure any grant or scholarship funding available at your university if applicable.

If you are interested in a longer, even more substantial experience, we also offer a 3-6 month Internship Program in our Bali center. In this role, you will complete the four hours of international work and four hours of local work as part of the Work Study Program, but will have increased responsibility and more opportunity to particularize your tasks to your skills. If you are interested in a more involved experience, please apply for the Work Study Program and note your interest in the Internship Program. We will work with you to assess your skills and how you can best contribute your time.

If you have any questions about our organization or programs, please contact [email protected]. If you are ready to apply, please send your CV to [email protected]
