HOW DO I VOLUNTEER
DESCRIPTION – A volunteer is a person who feels the call to work very hard in often difficult surroundings for no pay! Their personal reward is to make a difference in the lives of others, experience significant growth in their own, and often enjoy rewarding interaction with other volunteers.
LENGTH OF TIME – Volunteers can be very short term up to staying for years! It is not infrequent that a volunteer decides to stay longer than originally intended, as they feel a personal call to continue help making a difference.
ROOM AND BOARD – Volunteers are offered shelter such as we have, and they are welcome to eat what is provided here for Familia Feliz. There are no stipends offered and volunteers need to have their own source of money for their travel, visas, personal needs and wants. Often funds are raised before- hand and then received on a monthly basis, but each case is different. We have no type of medical insurance here so that needs to be a personal consideration as well.
WHO IS NEEDED – Right now we are in URGENT need for teachers that can teach in Spanish, and for committed home parents. Our new school year will start in February and the most ideal would be to start at the beginning of the school year. Often we are not able to function with the ideal, so if you think you might be a teacher or house parent, give us a call!
Most volunteers wear more than one hat here. Other skills that are highly valued are: cooking, agriculture, mechanical/maintenance, carpenters and audio/visual with communication skills are very useful to help maintain our website, facebook page, and PR requests.
