We are always on the lookout for compassionate, creative, committed individuals to volunteer with us. However, please note that if you are not familiar with the Korean language, you will face limitations in finding volunteer opportunities of your choice.
For volunteer opportunities near you, please contact our local chapters at the number below. For obvious reasons, our chapters prefer volunteers who are fluent in Korean, and we define “fluency in Korean” as an ability to communicate with the chapter staff without any external assistance.
