Make a Difference for Children

Save the Children welcomes and encourages committed individuals to apply as skilled volunteers in our Fairfield, Connecticut and Washington, D.C. offices. Skilled volunteer opportunities range from short-term (three month) to long-term (one year) assignments. They are offered in a variety of areas such as finance, fundraising, human resources, marketing and communications, public policy, and social media- as well as other program areas.

Qualified individuals are encouraged to apply online. If you do not see a volunteer opening that matches your skills and interests, you may apply also to intern positions and if selected, the position will be re-classified as a skilled volunteer.

What is a skilled volunteer?

An individual who possesses the skills and knowledge to perform service free of pressure, and without promise of financial compensation for their work.

  • An individual wanting to re-enter the workforce and sharpen their skills as well as further their professional experience
  • A recent college graduate looking to get their foot in the door and gain experience
