Why Volunteer with Save the Children?

If you are passionate about making a difference in the life of a child and are committed to giving all children the best chance for the future they deserve, then volunteering with Save the Children may be the right place for you.

We are creating a new volunteer network of supporters across the United States who will take action on our behalf at events, as advocates, and in future activities and programs as we expand.

Please note: Due to volume, we are unable to contact each interested prospective volunteer. If selected for consideration, a member of our team will contact you to discuss available opportunities that may align with your background or skill set.

Our Mission

We focus on reaching the world’s most marginalized and deprived children, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives. We work to ensure that every child survives, gets a basic education, and is protected from all forms of abuse and violence
