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.

WYCF has hosted several students from different nationalities looking for an international placement to fulfill their university requirements.
We provide low-cost accommodation at the WYCF Home, created especially for our international volunteers and visitors.

Together everyone achieves more! Be a donor or find out about other ways to get involved and become part of the WYCF Family!
