MAN-YEAR IN 2021
We rely heavily on volunteers to perform certain administration tasks. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent border closing, the number of volunteers was lower than usual.

Some frequently asked questions.

How much time do I need to volunteer?2022-04-21T02:28:04+00:00

We require a minimum stay of three months. This is due to the complexity of our work and the training required with our databases.

There is a 5 work-day leave per three-month period.

Where will I be based?2022-04-21T02:27:13+00:00

We base our long term-volunteers at our headquarters in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The office is within walking distance of the old city square. Click here to locate us >

What’s your work schedule?2022-06-08T01:55:36+00:00

The volunteer position is full time from Monday through Friday with three schedules to choose from: 8:00-17:00, 8:30-17:30, 9:00-18:00.

What can I expect?2022-06-08T02:51:19+00:00

This volunteer position is a 100% office-based assignment with no interaction with children. Our office in Chiang Mai serves as our headquarters, with general administration, donor and project management, and finance works. Our projects and beneficiaries are mostly located in remote areas of the Mekong Sub-Region (Myanmar, Lao PDR, Cambodia and Thailand).

We can arrange a visit to projects within the period of your volunteer assignment, usually at the end, depending on the timing and availability of our field staff.

Will I get paid for my volunteer work?2022-06-08T01:57:30+00:00

Unfortunately, we do not provide board and lodging or compensation. Volunteers need to provide themselves with accommodation, transportation, food, etc.

Do you ask for participation pay?2022-06-08T01:44:42+00:00

We do not ask for a participation fee. We only hire a volunteer who fits the position.

Do you accept volunteer teachers?2022-06-08T01:32:40+00:00

We no longer host volunteer teachers. Please check our Volunteer with Us page for other volunteer opportunities.

Will I get a job with the organisation after volunteering?2022-06-08T01:59:02+00:00

Candidates should have no expectation of possible employment after the volunteer assignment. In the case of a job opening, we will announce publicly and will appoint the most appropriate applicant.

Can I volunteer remotely?2022-04-21T02:04:45+00:00

Unfortunately, we cannot accept remote volunteers at the moment. We use a lot of databases at work and allowing remote access to non-Child’s Dream issued devices could put our system at a critical security risk.

We are currently exploring different possibilities to address this challenge and to accommodate the sharp increase in demand for remote work.

What if my question isn’t answered here?2022-06-08T02:58:41+00:00

If we haven’t covered your question please email us at volunteers@childsdream.org and we’ll be happy to help!

Testimonials

What our volunteers say

I volunteered full time with Child’s Dream for 6 months and was so impressed with its impact, transparency, and dedication to a cause. All the staff are true professionals, always keeping the beneficiaries at the heart of every decision they make.

I have served as a volunteer and later became an ambassador for Child’s Dream. Having seen many other charities and NGOs work both on fundraising and execution, I’m convinced that Child’s Dream is setting the benchmark in so many areas. Starting with high diligence in prioritizing the right projects, a pragmatic execution approach, and highly transparent reporting, I deeply admire what this great team is doing. Visit, donate, and experience yourself!
