Street Child is calling for individuals hoping to gain valuable experience in the development sector by undertaking a voluntary research role in Liberia.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a team that is implementing an innovative program that wants to achieve a rapid improvement in learning outcomes for Liberia’s children as well as build the long-term capacity of teachers and schools across the country.

This role represents a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a dynamic charity with a passion for innovation within the sector. The successful candidate’s work will contribute towards our commitment to creating positive change for some of the world’s most vulnerable children and provide a superb platform for further career development.
Street Child's aim is to create educational opportunities for some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
We began our work in Sierra Leone working with a small number of street children, nine years later we have helped to transform the lives of more than fifty thousand children across Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nepal. This year, we launched our first project in Nigeria helping children impacted by conflict in the North East of the country.
Street Child is currently expanding its operations to Liberia, in an attempt to serve increasing numbers of children in need. Street Child of Liberia has been working with the Government of Liberia and partner organisations to strengthen the capacity of teachers, schools and communities to sustain their investment in the education for their children. As a volunteer, you will be part of an exciting stage of the organization’s growth, and will be working closely with the Street Child of Liberia team to support our programs.
The successful applicant must be prepared to live and work in austere conditions when required, and to travel independently within Liberia. The applicant must be able to manage their work plan and report regularly to the team on progress, and will be considered a valued member of the team.
A fundraising commitment will be required of the successful applicant, for which support will be provided by Street Child staff. The successful applicant will be required to live in Liberia for at least 4 weeks. Food and flights are at the applicant’s own expense.
