Looking for a hands-on way to experience sustainable solutions to hunger and poverty? Since 1944, Heifer International has helped more than 9.2 million families move toward self-reliance in 125 countries. Heifer works to end world hunger and poverty in a way that cares for the Earth by providing sustainable gifts of livestock and agricultural training to people struggling daily for food and income. In the U.S., three interactive Learning Centers (located in Arkansas, California and Massachusetts) teach the public about the root causes of hunger and poverty and the way animals and people can make a difference. Volunteers hold major responsibilities and perform duties such as facilitating team building activities, assisting with global village programming, leading tours, hosting the visitor’s center, caring for livestock, tending the gardens, maintaining the facilities and providing operations support. Residential volunteers must be at least 18, live on-site and dedicate months, even an entire year, to full-time volunteering. Each LearningCenter provides housing for full-time volunteers, as well as a stipend if you volunteer for a minimum of one month. The online application will allow you to create a profile enabling you to view listings of all available positions at each Learning Center.
