As an IVHQ Childcare volunteer, you'll have the choice of working in a variety of environments across 30+ destinations around the world, including daycare centres, orphanages, after school & community centres and feeding programs.
Childcare volunteers require lots of energy with duties including mentoring, playing games, assisting with the daily operational needs of the centre, and providing ongoing educational support to children.
