INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
JFRF believes in helping local people solve local problems. If you’d like to share your experience, technical skills and abilities to help committed, dedicated Nicaraguans strengthen their communities, you can travel as an international volunteer or work from home to assist Nicaraguan communities in need.
Volunteers have included translators, medical professionals, therapists, trainers, educators, engineers and contractors. Opportunities are available in many areas. JFRF provides in-country assistance to support volunteers.
See our video (to the right) to learn more about the impact our volunteers and supporters can have.
