Volunteer in Puerto Rico

Be the Change. Be a Global Volunteer in Puerto Rico

Support Puerto Rican Children

The beautiful island of Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the United States, a common destination for Americans seeking beach vacations with a Latin twist.  But beyond the seaside hotels is a community asking for your help – students looking to sharpen their English skills, orphaned and vulnerable children needing psycho-social support, and community buildings in need of tender loving care. Lend your hands and heart; in just one week, you can make a difference and form lasting bonds with the people of Puerto Rico. See Covid-19 requirements.

We‘re in contact with our community partners in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Fiona to determine what assistance Global Volunteers can provide families and organizations at this time. We’ll update here as information becomes available.
