Frontiers Foundation is looking for outgoing, motivated, volunteers to work in schools in the north of Canada. Our volunteers assist in schools as tutors and teaching assistants and assist in many different capacities in the schools. Most of the work that we do is in First Nations communities in northern Canada and very often these communities suffer from a variety of social problems with the worst of these being alcoholism and drug abuse. The work that we do is very challenging and can be difficult and it is only for people who are prepared to deal with these problems on a regular basis.
If you were to apply and be accepted Frontiers Foundation would cover all of the volunteer’s travel within Canada. Volunteers from outside of Canada are required to pay their own way to and from Canada and cover the costs of obtaining the required work visa. Frontiers Foundation will also cover all of the volunteer’s food and living costs while on the project and provide medical insurance and winter clothing. Our projects work around the school year and begin in early September and continue through to the end of June. This is a long term commitment and should only be undertaken with a great deal of thought.
