International Humanity Foundation Direct an Orphanage in Thailand
"The International Humanity Foundation is looking for directors to manage our orphanage in Chiang Rai, Thailand, and be friends and teachers to our children. By bringing together disadvantaged children of Thailand and volunteers from across the world, there is a learning opportunity for both. As both sides discover more about each other, their lives and their cultures and go on to teach their own friends what they learned in this exchange, we hope to create a world of greater understanding and compassion. Our Thailand centre works especially with the hill tribes, the indigenous people who live in the tumultuous borderlands between Thailand, Myanmar (Burma) and Laos and as far as China and Vietnam. The hill tribes in northern Thailand face many challenges, and it is part of our mission to arm our children with the skills, attitudes and knowledge that they will need to have equal opportunities in their future like other Thai citizens. The children at our centre are from the Lahu and Akha tribes. Work - IHF needs people with all skills. No matter your experience, whether a student or retired professional, IHF needs you. At the centre, volunteers divide their time between playing with and teaching the children and working on international tasks. The centre host English, computer and math classes, and the children often seek tutoring for their homework, all tasks which volunteers take part in. All directors lead on one or more of our international task teams such as university relations, photography and child watch. To qualify to work at a centre, volunteers must complete eight hours of work on one of the teams, and they continue to participate on the team once at the centre. In the rare case where you lack the ability to complete these hours but possess certain trade skills in agriculture, construction or others needed at one of our centres, you may be exempt from these pre-trip hours. If this is the case, be sure to immediately get in contact with the centre director to discuss your situation and possible alternative tasks. It is important to note that IHF strictly requires its directors to work eight hours a day (four hours at the center and four hours online), six days a week. If this work is not completed, you will be dismissed from your position. As an entirely volunteer-run organization, IHF depends upon its members to contribute to the day-to-day operations, both locally and internationally. Without these daily hours, IHF would cease to function, so directors must be deliberate in their use of time. This is not a vacation. Directors are expected to work hard. Cost: Except for the initial transport to the center, directors are not responsible for any costs. Salary / Pay: Directors must commit to serve at least a year at the center. For the first three months, they are paid a living stipend of USD $120. At the end of this training period, the monthly stipend increases to USD $160. Directors are expected to work eight hours a day, six days a week, and have one long weekend every month. Admittedly, this is little pay for demanding work, but IHF is only looking for those who genuinely want to help children and who seek no financial benefit for themselves. This low stipend also assures that the greatest amount of money goes toward the children, the most important part of IHF. Please visit www.ihfonline.org or send us an email at hiring2@ihfonline.org if you want to learn more or have questions about volunteering with IHF.

School on Wheels, Inc. Tutoring Homeless Children

School on Wheels is a non-profit organization that seeks to enhance educational opportunities for homeless and foster children in kindergarten through twelfth grade. We aim to close the academic gaps by offering academic support and supplies year-round. 

School on Wheels is looking for dedicated people to volunteer tutor for one hour a week with homeless children and youth, (all grade levels and ages are available). The wonderful kids we serve are living in shelters, emergency drop-in centers and other locations throughout Upland, Loma Linda, San Bernardino, and Riverside/Moreno Valley. Our tutors are the "wheels" by visiting the children where they are at to provide tutoring.

No previous tutoring or teaching experience is required, just a willingness to make a real and lasting difference in a young person's life by helping them academically. And you will be volunteering with a student in an age range that you're comfortable working with for just an hour a week.
