You Can Change Lives


Volunteers play a key role in WYCF’s success and we welcome them year-round!


WYCF has hosted many students of different nationalities who participate in field research, WYCF projects, and more!


For those who want to get involved, but can’t travel to Sierra Leone- you can still help us tremendously from home!


Volunteers play a key role in WYCF’s success and we welcome them year-round! Volunteer roles can range from teaching a class, to working one-on-one with students with particular needs, to developing proposals, to designing a community project, to assisting with overall office work – just to name a few examples. Whatever the case may be, we tend to give our volunteers a lot of creative freedom over their work, whether it is in the office or out in the field. 

Since 2012, we have hosted 30+ international volunteers of about 10 different nationalities from all over the world – and some of them have even travelled to Sierra Leone to work with WYCF more than once!

We have continuously perfected our culture of volunteerism to provide the best experience and best collaboration possible to both the volunteers and the beneficiaries of our projects. We have created the WYCF Home with international volunteers in mind. It is a modest home at the heart of a typical neighborhood in Freetown, where visitors can find safe and comfortable accommodation at an affordable cost. 

We ask all volunteers to commit to a fundraising target – which we help them meet! Our work is only made possible through successful fundraising and so we encourage our volunteers to look at fundraising and an added opportunity to experience the daily efforts of our Team, as well as to gain valuable skills complementary to the other tasks they will be taking on. 

Please get in touch and let us know when, for how long, and why you would like to become a WYCF volunteer:

We will send you detailed information about traveling requirements, accommodation options, and living costs right away so we can start to plan your trip as soon as you would like! 


A once-in-a-lifetime chance to make an impact.


WYCF has hosted many students of different nationalities who are looking for an international placement to fulfill their university requirements. To name a few, we have welcomed Geography, Sociology, Anthropology, Global Health and Human Rights researchers. We have hosted gap year students to Fulbright Scholars. WYCF provides assistance by sharing local, relevant contacts and networks, by finding local interpreters when applicable, and by facilitating low-cost accommodation at the WYCF Home, created especially for our international volunteers and visitors. Interns can get involved by undertaking field research related to their specific study plans, by supporting a WYCF project – or both!

Please get in touch and let us know your internship requirements and your study plans so we can start planning our collaboration as soon as possible:

We will send you detailed information about traveling requirements, accommodation options and living costs right away!

WYCF is a partner of Omprakash’s accredited gap year and internship program.
