Volunteers have the option to complete their program at any of our IHF Education Centers located in Jakarta, Bali, and Medan. Our centers across Indonesia operate free and open classes for students ages 6 to 18, taught by local teachers in congruence with international volunteers. We strive to develop global leaders with cross cultural experiences through the teaching of core competencies in addition to offering leadership and life skills training. Each center will present the volunteer with unique challenges in terms of management of local volunteers, classroom management, and community engagement, in addition to being trained on the operational procedures required to oversee the successful management of an NGO.
The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) has been active in Indonesia since 1984. Though each center has unique needs and challenges the primary goal of each is the same, to provide free supplementary education for children from economically underprivileged backgrounds. Volunteers who sign up to donate their time at one of our IHF Education Centers make a very real impact during their stay participating in any or all of the following local tasks:
Organize special games, activities, and workshops for the children
Submit weekly lesson plans, and lead informal English, math, & computer classes
Help improve our center by participating in small projects and repairs
Share your knowledge, skills and experience with the communities we serve through our community outreach projects
Support our local Indonesian teachers through both professional mentorship and social friendships cultivated
Train in the core components of an international organization (including management skills, policy and procedures, finance, fundraising, media & PR, donor relations, and recruitment)
Be responsible for the management, design and implementation of community led projects linked to your academic and or professional skills and experience
Manage local volunteers and shape their experience at our IHF Education Center
The program requires a minimum time commitment of 4 months, though we encourage volunteers to stay for up to 1 year or more.
