Volunteer with us

Teaching program 

Chrystal Children’s Center provides international volunteers with the possibility to join our classrooms and make a meaningful impact by teaching not only our little students but also mentoring the local teachers we work with. As a volunteer teacher you have the opportunity to create a monthly school schedule, train the teachers by passing on valuable knowledge regarding topics such as teaching methods, individual approach, test preparation, etc…

Childcare  

Our dedicated team has created a loving home for abandoned newborns and neglected toddlers. Join our daily efforts and become a “Mother” for one of our youngest family members by providing much needed help and support/gentle care with daily routines: bathing, feeding, changing, early stimulation and child’s play.

Construction project  

A team of devoted and enthusiastic returning and new volunteers has initiated the construction of a new home for Chrystal’s children, in order to eliminate the cost of rent and increase long-term project security. If you have background in construction, cost estimation and cost cutting, proposal drawing, fundraising or you just want to get your hands dirty through honest manual labor what better way than building a new home for an underprivileged child.

Sustainability project  

What we truly cherish is when our volunteers share with us knowledge, experience and ideas from around the world to improve our work and contribute to establishing sustainable solutions for our problems. Come on board a brainstorming and executive team that creates long-term viable projects to ensure our children not only survive but thrive.

Social Media and Marketing  

If your strength lies in the world of marketing and business, but your passion is helping the less fortunate we need you! Can you write social media content? Can you take professional pictures? Are you a good story teller? Do you have experience in merchandising? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, we truly need your help to tell our story and win over more supporters to fight the good fight side by side with us.

Fund-raising

As you have probably guessed it, running a center for 30 + vulnerable children is a mighty expensive endeavor. One of the most important tasks our volunteers undertake is securing financial support for both the children at the center and the sustainability projects, so that we can ensure long term security, protection, nutrition, education and medical care. If you are experienced in fundraising or your heart is set on procuring funds and sponsors we would love to hear your ideas and team up with you to create a lasting impact and stability for our home. 

Testimonies

“Volunteering with Chrystal Children’s Center has open my eyes to all the endless possibilities there are to add value to someone’s life . If you want to truly make a difference ask yourself how you can be of service to this community and do everything in your power to make a change. Volunteering was a life changing experience that gave me the opportunity to learn about the community, culture and contribute to make a positive change.” 

Estefany Gomez

“Nothing could have prepared me for how incredible my experience at Chrystal’s was. It’s been about two years since, and I still think about the children constantly. I went with the intention to serve the kids but what I didn’t realize was how much they would teach me. While many come to the center in dire condition, they still smile and love more than anyone I’ve ever met. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to help out at Chrystal’s and my life has not been the same since.” 

Andy Antle

Working at Chrystal’s showed me how easy it is to make people happy and improve their quality of life. I loved the amazingly positive spirit at the center that made me always leave with a smile looking forward to the next day with the children. –

“The period of volunteering at “Chrystal Children’s Center” helped me become the person I always wanted to be. I learned what compassion is and how it feels to care for another person and want his happiness even more than I wish for myself. It is a great privilege to have the opportunity to help children, even if it is the smallest gesture. A little smile from them was everything for me.”  

Lihi Rozner, 30 from Israel

“Working with kids was a stupendous journey. All the smiles I have seen, all the cries I have heard all the games we have played and all the hours we’ve shared – they made me a different person. Chrystal is a place where man can give a lot not even having that much and can receive much more in return. A part of my heart is forever in there!!!”

Kasia Szumanska, Poland, 24

“After spending two months volunteering at Crystal’s, my life has been changed for the better. If it wasn’t for the orphanage, these beautiful souls would be without the love and stability children need. The moment you walk into the home, you feel Christ’s love all around you. The children there took my heart and never gave it back. Their love for life and love for each other amazes me. I have a new look on life thanks to the courage of the children at Crystal!”

Kinzie Dawn Owen, 22, Utah

“Volunteering with Chrystal was one of the most joyous and rewarding experiences of my life. I have fabulous memories of my time there and still miss all the children, staff and fellow volunteers I met there. An ideal place to volunteer where you can make a real difference.”
