How to Find Jobs Working With Orphans or Foster Kids


It can be fulfilling to work with people who are in need of your help. It also helps to keep your heart pure towards others. Outreach programs or organizations that focus on helping orphans or foster children are avenues to find work with children in need.

  • Enroll in a bachelor's program designed to help children. Some program choices include social work, early childhood development or psychology.

  • Go to the website "Orphanage Outreach" to apply as a volunteer to teach English. You can help teach children during the summer programs or apply for their volunteer internships. The Orphanage Outreach provides food, shelter and transportation for their volunteers.

  • Go to the website "Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children" (CASA) to become a volunteer. As a volunteer, you help foster kids to get out of neglected and abusive situations. You work diligently on cases for foster children until they are placed in a safe home environment.

  • Go to the website "Career Builder." Search for employment as a foster care caseworker or as a social worker within your area.
