How to get there

Requirements Fluency in both written and spoken English is essential. Volunteers must commit to serve at least one year at the center. We value volunteers who are creative and innovative, willing to take responsibility and easily adapt to new conditions and unexpected situations. We welcome applicants with any background, but prefer degrees in social studies, language, education, medicine, law and social work. Experience traveling, working or volunteering abroad will be an asset. We require candidates have 1-2 years of working experience in any field. Experience with teaching and/or children is crucial. Minimum age requirement for Kenya is 24 and 22 for Indonesian centers. Each IHF center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host country. So must our staff. Our volunteers must have high intercultural sensitivity and be tolerant to different views and ways of life.
