Do you love children? Are you interested in serving in Latin America for a year?

NPH USA helps screen, place and support volunteers who serve for a year or more in one of the nine homes of Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH): Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Bolivia, Peru, the Dominican Republic and Haiti. For the last 60 years Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos has provided a loving home to orphaned, abandoned and at-risk children. Children are not up for adoption, but live in a family environment where they receive love, education, health care, and life skills.

Volunteers must commit for a year, and have a job on site during the day. Most volunteers work in education, administration and health care. In addition to their job, volunteers spend time with a group of children each evening. Volunteers live in community with other international volunteers from around the world.

NPH provides room and board, a modest stipend, and access to limited health care. NPH USA provides international health insurance. Volunteers must pay for their flights to and from the countries where they serve and any extra spending money.

Most of the homes accept volunteers to begin in either July or January, and it is best to apply 6-9 months in advance of the start date. We have a July 1 deadline for January applications, and a January 1 deadline for July applications. We accept applications after those deadlines, but we like to receive them all by the same date if possible. Please apply even if the deadline has passed.


***With COVID-19 complicating the world, there are a lot of short-term unknowns right now for our program, but we are still recruiting volunteers and accepting applications. We have pushed our summer departure date, which typically takes place in July, to October. We will continue to accept and fill positions up until August 1st.  Please note that the October departure date is subject to change, depending on worldwide circumstances. If you are interested in applying for a January 2021 start date, you also have until August 1st to apply online (in order to be given first priority consideration). The application can be found here: https://www.nph.org/application


Please check out the different positions being offered at the www.nph.org site. We continuously update the positions that will be open. We always need volunteers to serve in education (as teachers and tutors), medical (nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists), communication, and coordination.
