LKF Global Volunteer Ambassadors work with government organizations, orphanages, healthcare, childcare and residential settings worldwide. During these volunteer programs, LKF Global volunteer ambassadors share their expertise to improve the lives of infants, children and their caregivers. Volunteer programs offer specific developmentally appropriate care for children and education for their caregivers.  We focus our efforts on initiatives that are sustainable, responsible and support the communities where we work.

Liddle Kidz Foundation volunteers come from many different professional backgrounds - experience is required for all Liddle Kidz foundation volunteers!  All Liddle Kidz Foundation volunteers are professional healthcare providers who are very carefully screened, vetted, background checked, trained and educated prior to their volunteer work.

Our volunteers typically consist of massage therapists, nurses, physicians, occupational therapists, physical therapists, sensory integration practitioners, child life specialists, and movement therapists. They have in common a desire to share their experience, nurturing and care to provide the best start possible for children throughout the world. Learn how you can enjoy the most rewarding experience of a lifetime!

No, our volunteers come from many different professional backgrounds.  We ask each volunteer to complete a thorough volunteer application, including providing professional credentials, licensures and training/educational background.

Each volunteer must submit to a thorough accredited background check, sign the child protection code of conduct and sign the volunteer agreement which states that they will adhere to proper healthcare standards, infection control, and practice a very clear, professional code of conduct. Under our guidelines volunteers working on project sites where children are present, are required to have an enhanced criminal records check/background check administered by an accredited independent background check agency.

Selected volunteers will be working with children and their caregivers, and should be patient, compassionate, resourceful, creative and imaginative. Specialized training in infant and pediatric massage will help ensure successful implementation of nurturing touch activities and programs.

volunteer-skills

All Liddle Kidz Foundation volunteers are professional healthcare providers who bring their expertise to each project.  Specialized training in infant and pediatric massage will help ensure successful implementation of nurturing touch activities and programs.

In addition to the pre-exisiting professional healthcare background of a volunteer, each Liddle Kidz Foundation Ambassador receives additional onsite training, orientation and mentoring, as well as, social-emotional preparation prior to attending the outreach trip, support throughout the entire trip and post program support when they return home. The experience of this volunteering program can be quite profound, and volunteers often wish to communicate with others who understand.  We practice great care in the emotional health and well being of children, their caregivers and our volunteers to ensure everyone receives best care.

volunteer-role

Take the leap and apply to join our volunteer ambassador team today. By joining our team, you will provide essential support to the caregivers and staff by assisting in sharing nurturing touch and developmental education throughout their daily activities at the orphanages, child centers and healthcare facilities, and by offering a positive role model for the children.

In addition to providing therapeutic care to children, Liddle Kidz Foundation Ambassador teams provide an enormous amount of education to staff, caregivers, healthcare workers and families, so they may be able to continue a sustainable practice of ensuring children receive nurturing touch.

Volunteers are observed at all times, they are never left alone with a child. Additionally, we limit the amount of time spent in any one healthcare facility, orphanage or child care center, so neither a volunteer, nor child, would develop any inappropriate attachment, or form any type of bond.

We are extremely sensitive to the health and well being of all children.  Safety and care of the children is paramount to our work!
