A daycare volunteer at the Guagua Quinde Center in Quito would assist the staff in the center to care for children ages 6 months to 5 years, as well as older children who come to the centre during the day.
Childcare volunteering abroad is a fantastic way for both experienced and inexperienced volunteers to make a meaningful contribution overseas. There are thousands of organizations that work hard each day to improve the lives of young people living on the margins. Often these organizations are severely underfunded and understaffed. As a result, simple assistance with the day to day management of feeding, housing and caring for the children is sorely needed.
While many childcare volunteer placements are looking for basic assistance that does not require a background or formal training in childcare, there are also several placements that are seeking qualified assistance.
