Volunteer With Heifer International

Find out how to volunteer with Heifer International

Do you have volunteer opportunities?

Yes! We have volunteer opportunities at special educational and fundraising events throughout the year, as well as at our campus:

Heifer Village  
Little Rock, Arkansas
Tel: 877.870.COWS or 501.907.C0WS
Email: village@heifer.org

We also need volunteers to educate others about Heifer’s mission, so they too can be inspired to end hunger and poverty. Promote our work through school programs or with faith communities.

What is a "Living Gift Market"?

Living Gift Market is charity event that can last a few hours or even a few days. Small markets may be as simple as a table displaying information about what Heifer gifts can do, whereas larger markets might include several booths and activities featuring each animal we provide. Either way, shoppers buy gifts that lead to eliminating hunger and poverty around the world.

We're holding/participating in a big event that we expect will attract a lot of people. Can we order Heifer materials to distribute?

We have a variety of free resources available that are suitable for any fundraising effort you want might to do. Some resources are available for direct download while other resources are shipped free of charge within the United States.

Do you have a list of fundraising ideas I can check out?

Yes! We have several fundraising ideas for children and adults. Check out what you can do or fundraise your own way!

Can I volunteer with a Heifer project overseas?

We understand and appreciate the commitment potential volunteers have for the work Heifer is doing around the world, but we do not have the employee time in our country offices that it takes to manage volunteers.

The best way is for you to volunteer locally to help us raise awareness of the work Heifer is doing. We encourage you to complete our volunteer application. This will allow you to express your volunteer interests and give us a better understanding of how we can best connect you.

I would like to volunteer at the Heifer Village. What are the requirements?

Volunteers should commit to a minimum of one, 4-hour shift per week for at least four months. Shifts available are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. We ask our Saturday volunteers to commit to a 4-hour shift two Saturdays per month. All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and complete required training.

Can I guest write a blog/article for the Heifer International Blog or World Ark Magazine?

The Heifer International blog reflects the interests, issues and events we are paying attention to, and the content aims to entertain and educate longtime Heifer supporters while also attracting new ones. While we do not publish guest blogs, we do often link to external blogs and articles. If there’s an issue you’re interested in reading about, or if you’ve written a blog you think is relevant, please feel free to share it with us at worldark@heifer.org
