The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Do you like working with teenagers and families? Do you enjoy learning about other cultures? Would you like to support international exchange students in navigating their experience in the USA? YFU USA is currently looking for volunteers in Kokomo, IN interested in supporting our students and host families throughout their time together. You will serve as an unbiased advocate for the student, offering guidance and support through regular contact.
Youth for Understanding offers excellent training to prepare you for that role as well as support along the way. When you join YFU you become part of one of the oldest and most respected programs in international student exchange.
