CCF needs good, high-quality volunteers, able and willing to go the extra mile in a demanding environment. But it doesn’t need many. This is largely because, whenever a particular skillset is needed or task required, CCF prefers to create local jobs.
CCF doesn’t use short-term volunteers either. Too many CCF children have had too much turbulence in their lives, so we do our best to minimise that as much as possible. A succession of new faces just isn’t good for them so, save in exceptional circumstances, we ask our volunteers to commit to 3 months or more.
Likewise, because CCF’s own resources are also all directed at the children, the programs and the projects, there isn’t any spare to subsidise volunteers, so while CCF will be delighted to give all the help it can, we need anyone who wants to come and work with us to be fully self-sustaining in terms of travel, accommodation and living arrangements. Flexibility, adaptability, a sense of perspective and a sense of humour will also be required!
Perhaps most importantly, the volunteer has to offer skills and abilities that fit a specific CCF need.
To date, CCF has most needed;
- ESL teachers
- trained early childcare professionals
- art teachers
- human rights and law educators
- maths and finance teachers
- small business management experts
- leadership training specialists
- media studies personnel
- AND MANY MORE!
The above list isn’t exhaustive and other opportunities do occur. Please remember too that there might well be opportunities to help CCF in those countries where it has support organisations; USA, UK, Australia and Hong Kong.

CCF welcomes and values its volunteers. They may not be many, but they have a great time, do fine work and their partings tend to be reluctant and hedged with plans on when and how to return. We can guarantee that, if you do volunteer, your wallet won’t be any fatter but your life will feel a lot richer.
