Whether you are college-age, retired or are looking for a second career, whether you are deeply searching for God’s will for your life, or simply want to help others -if you are willing to give your time, talents, and energy enthusiastically and with excellence, FHC invites you to come to Ecuador. There are many opportunities and ways to get involved, no matter your interests, skills or age. Our volunteers can range in age from 18 to 101!

Or, you can help FHC right in your hometown! FHC regularly utilizes talented volunteers to design and produce outreach materials, translate documents and help with financial or outreach planning. Additionally, FHC is always looking for enthusiastic supporters to host a fundraiser or outreach session at your home, church or school. We regularly post volunteer and outreach opportunities in our newsletter, so be sure to subscribe, or email us to let us know how you think your skill can benefit FHC.

Volunteers are welcomed to stay anywhere between four and twelve weeks, the maximum allowed under a standard tourist visa. Volunteers who wish to commit to a longer term of service should contact Jennifer to find out more about obtaining the necessary visa.

Volunteers will receive:

  • Airport pick up
