Make a Difference

Our mission of supporting and empowering communities would not be complete without our amazing staff, volunteers, fundraisers, and partners.


Dedicate your time. Change lives. Broaden your horizons.


The Global Child believes in engaging hard-working, dedicated, and qualified volunteers to assist the core staff of Cambodian educators in enacting its mission. Volunteers are valuable assets to TGC, directly contributing to a wide range of different goals, from hands-on teaching in the classroom to working with local organizations, to developing new projects and extracurricular activities for our students. The experience of working closely with Cambodian students brings ineffable perspective to one’s life. Volunteers leave our program with new insights, broadened horizons, and unique perspectives.

The Global Child relies upon motivated individuals to take on the role of volunteer teachers to provide a comprehensive educational experience to our students. Volunteers are utilized primarily in teaching English classes, but also may be responsible for teaching math or science classes. Besides this, we welcome volunteers that are interested in supporting or running special programs like STEM workshops, health classes, as well as other topics of interest. We are always open to collaborations like the Minerva Fellows program at Union College.

Learn More About the Minerva Fellows

I volunteered at The Global Child from 2017-2018. Unlike most Minerva Fellows sent to Cambodia, I have had the unique opportunity to teach these amazing students a second time, which has helped me realize how important a good teacher is. The fellowship taught me that a teacher not only has the power to distribute knowledge, but to inspire. I am fortunate enough to have found early on in my life an itch I just can’t scratch, which is design and storytelling. I think my fellowship has taught me that I do have the unique ability to inspire others, and this has become a main focus of mine as I navigate this strange thing we all call life.

To make a lasting change, we request a commitment of at least two weeks for in-person and two lessons for virtual. Email Elisabeth Dubois at [email protected] for more information.
