At-Home Volunteer Program

Make a Meaningful Impact 
from the Comfort of Your Own Home


IHF has no centralized administrative offices and thus relies on volunteers across the globe to help manage and support our international programs and projects remotely.


Our At-Home Volunteers support this work remotely, from their homes around the world. An At-Home Volunteer should have access to a dependable computer and wifi connection, and experience with Google Suites applications is a plus.


IHF is looking for volunteers who can commit approximately 2-3 hours per week to their assigned team(s).
