As a Bolivia Digna volunteer, you can work directly with children and make a difference but also grow as an individual. What seems little to you can mean the world to children!

We need people who can work directly with children on our own projects or our partners’, but also to help us with administrative, management and communication tasks.

Volunteers and interns are essential to us and to the other organizations we work with. As a volunteer, you can bring new ideas, new experiences and a culture that adds value to children, depending on your skills and interests. Two options are possible:

Short / medium-term volunteering

(1-5 months)

Short and medium-term volunteers are directly involved in the work with children and its preparation. You can work and focus on one of the following areas:

• Working with young children in community centers and childcare centers;

• Help primary and secondary school children with their homework in community centers, day care centers and schools;

• Support sports projects in community centers or in schools;

• Assist with creative projects (music, theatre, dance, painting, circus arts, etc.) in community centers, childcare centers and schools;

• Support the We Speak English program in community centers and schools.

Long-term volunteering

• Managing the work with children in community centers;

The foundation opens its doors to interns and welcomes students that are willing to complete an internship as part of their university studies. Know that if you do your internship within Bolivia Digna we will do our best to propose to you a mission linked to the skills you need to acquire during this period. Doing your internship in the heart of a developing country and subject to the laws of the country, we can't pay you. However, we set up a preferential tariff for the interns, schedules and tasks will be defined according to the agreement. We remind you that the priority is not to complete its hours, we expect a real collaboration during this internship, based on availability, responsibility and open-mindedness. As an example, the following universities and schools regularly send us interns :
  • In France : Université Paris Est Créteil, université Rennes 2, université Paris Descartes, ARFRIPS in Lyon, université de Perpignan, IAE école universitaire de management, CESI école d'ingénieur, Ingénieux Sud, School of business de Rennes, EM Strasbourg, Université de Limoges, Université du Havre.
  • In Belgium : La haute école libre Mosane HELMo Sainte Marie
  • In Danemark : Aalborg University

We are partners of Service Volontaire International, a non-profit association aiming to encourage international volunteering among the youth. If you are a member of the association, know that it is possible to do your experience of international volunteering with Bolivia Digna.

Arsenal, through Arsenal in the Community, delivers sport, social and education programmes in London and beyond. Every year, Bolivia Digna welcomes six of its volunteers thanks to an agreement signed between both parties. They notably participate in the sport activities and the english lessons.
