Become a Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Child’s Dream. To volunteer means to do challenging work and to be exposed to difficult situations, but it also means an outstanding opportunity to develop your personality and to experience life-enriching moments.

The minimum requirements to become a Child’ Dream volunteer

  • 20 years old and older.
  • Willing to be based in our Chiang Mai office for a minimum of three months.
  • Financially independent – Child’s Dream does not provide any financial support, including compensation for travel, accomodation, and living expenses.
  • Can work full time from Monday through Friday. Volunteers are entitled to 5 working days of annual leave per 3 months of work. We would, however, prefer volunteers to take their holidays before or after the volunteering assignment with Child’s Dream.

Thai authorities have become much more restrictive recently in issuing visas for volunteers. To obtain a volunteer visa is not always possible and takes time (our recent experience shows this may take 4-8 weeks).
