Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In the U.S. and around the world, we give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. We do whatever it takes for children - every day and in times of crisis - transforming their lives and the future we share.
Save the Children's Lexington Kentucky headquarters manages the Child Sponsorship program for children served in the United States. Child Sponsorship helps provide children with the necessities for a healthy and successful start to their life - nutrition, early childhood and adolescent development, education and school health. Our programs reach children’s parents, caregivers and community members. Together with more than 20,000 sponsors, we help save children’s lives, protect them from exploitation and provide them with hope for the future.
We are seeking 2 volunteers to support our Sponsorship Operations team for 10 or more hours a week for 20 weeks or longer. The volunteer positions can also serve as an internship opportunity.
