During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
NPH USA transforms the lives of orphaned, abandoned and disadvantaged children with homes, healthcare and educational programs, making a positive impact in Latin America and the Caribbean. We support Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH, Spanish for "Our Little Brothers and Sisters"), which is currently raising more than 3,400 boys and girls in Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru. An additional 1,600 students who live outside the homes receive scholarships, meals and health care. NPH outreach programs served thousands of people each year.
Our International Volunteer Program sends qualified individuals, married couples and families to serve for a year in any of the 9 NPH homes. Volunteers hold a job, and spend time with the children. Volunteers live in community with other international volunteers from around the world.
NPH provides volunteers with room and board, a small stipend, and access to limited health care. NPH USA pays a portion of volunteers' health insurance. Volunteers pay for their transportation to and from the country where they will serve.
Start dates are mid January and early July. For a July start date, applications are due by January 1. For a January start, applications are due July 1. We often have openings after the application deadline, so please apply even if the deadline has passed
