applicationsTo be able to volunteer with us, there are few things that we need done first. It helps you to understand us, our work, and what we expect from you. It also is necessary so that we can prepare for your arrival and the duration of your stay. Buying food in advance, preparing homestays, scheduling schools, etc... all this must be done prior to your arrival.

Also, by reading the information in the volunteering section, you will gain a much better knowledge of us - which is vital if you are going to get the most out of your stay.

To volunteer with The Mirror Foundation is easy!
