CARE encourages all of our U.S.-based supporters to join our CARE Action Network, a group of CARE advocates working to educate our nation’s leaders about issues related to global poverty. Join thousands of other supporters around the country in speaking out on behalf of women, children and poor families around the world.
CARE does not generally recruit volunteers for fieldwork for several reasons. Whenever possible, CARE works with local people in order to expand skills and knowledge in a county, as well as to ensure sustainability. Often, local laws prohibit or severely restrict the use of foreign volunteers. Most of our programs require specific expertise and several years of experience in international development and relief. Using volunteers internationally can be very costly in regard to airfare, meals, and lodging.
