Volunteer with Wings of Hope for Africa

Volunteer and Change Lives In Burundi, Africa... And Make New Friends, Too!

Are you a professional looking for skills-based volunteering? A student looking for valuable experience and references? A compassionate individual who wants to be involved in helping a small community?  We are wholly dependent on our sponsors and volunteers and their generous support. We are looking for individual sponsors who can contribute to our projects and development on an on-going, or temporary basis. 

Who Can Volunteer?

We’re looking for volunteers all the time — there’s a few stipulations, though. You must be at least 18 years old. You really want to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate. And we know that if you're reading this, you’ve already got that desire to help.  You can become part of fundraising and organizing events, or help out in many other ways. Our greatest need is on the frontlines of fundraising, such as researching grant opportunities and new partnerships. We are also always looking for event volunteers to help with fundraising.   

Why Volunteer?

Taking on a volunteering position adds immense value to your resume and can make you infinitely more employable.  We ask volunteers for a minimum 4 hours per week, for 3 months.  We will gladly provide reference letters for outstanding contributions.

You can learn new skills, make new friends, or use your existing professional skills to help others.  Taking part in our programs and seeing results can be very rewarding, and you’ll take home new skills, knowledge and practical work experience.  You will also know that your involvement is making a difference in one poorest regions in the world.  

Whether you’re interested in helping out once in a while, or donating your professional skills or experience on a regular basis, there are plenty of ways to become a part of Wings of Hope for Africa.  We are currently looking for:

  • Marketing and Fundraising Coordinators
  • Accountants
  • Graphic Designers
  • Event Volunteers

All positions are based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  There is a possibility of remote volunteer work for positions in marketing and design.  Send us your resume at info@wingsofhopeforafrica.ca, specifying the position you're applying for.
