God has gifted each of us uniquely and He desires that we use those gifts to honor Him. As a volunteer for Compassion, you can use your gifts, talents and time to help children in poverty around the world. You will be equipped with everything you need to start speaking up on behalf of children in poverty around the world. Become a volunteer and join a passionate and dedicated team of people who are working together to change the world.
When you volunteer with Compassion, you join a huge network of people who are all working together to spread the word about Compassion's ministry. Compassion's Advocate Network often feels more like a family, and offers you the unique chance to be a part of something much bigger than yourself.
Don't worry if you are unsure of where to start. As a volunteer you will receive extensive training, loads of advocacy materials (fact sheets, videos, posters, etc.) and many other resources to equip you to effectively tell others how they can change the life of a child in poverty. You will also have access to Christian events where Compassion is being presented as well as special trips to the field to witness Compassion's ministry firsthand.
Most importantly, when you volunteer with Compassion, you obey God's mandate to speak for "the least of these." A chance to honor God with your life is perhaps the greatest opportunity of all.
"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
- Matthew 25:40
