Volunteering with FHF
Every summer the Friends of Hue Foundation is happy to host a large group of interns from North America, South America, Asia, and Australia. These interns and volunteers (typically graduate and undergraduate students) engage in specific projects that include assessments evaluation, the development of business models, medical outreach, and the mentorship to our children. Many of our volunteers have left our program with a solid idea of what international development entails.
FHF has welcomed a wide variety of volunteers from a range of backgrounds. Just from the past few years, FHF’s Global Volunteers Program has hosted volunteers from Stanford University, Occidental University of Sydney, Volunteers in Asia, the Vietnamese Medical Outreach (VMO) at UC Berkeley, and the French Boy Scouts. In the summer of 2009, three students from Monta Vista High School volunteered at the Friends of Hue Foundation’s Children’s Shelter at Xuan Phu for two and a half weeks.
