Fun Run volunteers, 2008
Concern Worldwide was founded on a spirit of volunteerism. In the U.S. we have been fortunate to have so many excellent volunteers to help organize and promote events or provide their skills and services to raise awareness of our work.
Volunteering for Concern can range from organizing a fundraising event in your workplace, school or neighborhood, to joining one of the organizing committees for Concern's events.
Examples of other types of volunteer opportunities include camera crews, producers and film editors who have given their time and talents to bring images from some of the most deprived areas of the world to the attention of the American public. In partnership with a number of academic institutions, Concern offers a limited number of internships in our US offices.
There are many other examples of people and organizations that have offered their very specific skills to Concern Worldwide, which are often as
