Today my little sister is on her way back from a few months in Ethiopia teaching art at an orphanage for children who have lost their parents to AIDS. From what I’ve heard so far, she’s had an amazing impact, so I’m obviously overwhelmingly proud of her. It’s hard to imagine what life without a family is like, but there are millions of children all across the world who know all too well what it’s like. That’s why we’re taking a look at Kidsave today (not the organization that my sister was working with). They’re a Los Angeles, CA based non-profit that is aiming to “to ensure that no orphan or foster child is forgotten and that every child grows up in a family with love and hope for a successful future.” It all started when friends and business partners Terry Baugh and Randi Thompson, both adoptive parents, realized how tragic the stories of orphaned children really are. They started Kidsave in 1997, and since then they have helped “more than 2700 children [find] parents and lasting connections with adults.”

Saving Kids

Kidsave operates all across the globe with the specific goal of helping children find permanent families. Kidsave has 6 main programs – Weekend Miracles, Summer Miracles, Russian Programs, Colombian Programs, Model Programs, and Advocacy. All of these programs appear to be based on the Family Vist Model, which “draws from a broad base of research on orphaned and abandoned children’s needs and how best to meet those needs.” It looks like a fantastic program, and it should be something that you want to be a part of. Luckily, they’re hiring. They only have one job opening, but it’s perfect for a new grad. It’s not posted on Kidsave’s Jobs page, but you can find it on Idealist. The position title is Summer and Weekend Miracles Program Coordinator. There are quite a few requirements (but none of them are experience based), so check out the job description, and send a cover letter and resume to jennifer@kidsave.org if you’d like to apply.

    Hi Willy,

    Could you tell me the name of the program your sister was in? I’ve been trying to find a good volunteer program abroad, but there’s so much information that it’s hard to figure out which ones are actually good.

    Thanks,
    Phil
