World Vision Malaysia is thankful for the growing network of professionals, retirees, students and the general public who have volunteered their time, skills and expertise to make a difference to those in need.

You can contribute to the volunteer effort in our office, at our special events or both. The assistance you provide will help improve the lives of those in need; every assistance given, no matter how big or small, counts. We look forward to working together with you to bring about change.

Many of our supporters go beyond just volunteering. These remarkable individuals have gone the extra mile to bring hope to the poor and help people in need; impacting their own lives in the process. Click here to learn more.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Volunteeringe​​

Why volunteer with World Vision?

When you volunteer with World Vision you become part of a big family of like-minded people who are passionate and motivated about World Vision’s mission of eliminating poverty and helping children.

Volunteering is also a great way for volunteers to learn from each other of their different skills, knowledge and experience. Furthermore, volunteering widens your circle of friends and helps you put your time to productive use!

How do I sign-up?

Please sign-up online or fill in the volunteer sign-up form at our office or at the site of a WV event. Once you have signed-up, our Volunteer Coordinator will get in touch with you to find out your areas of interest.

Can I volunteer overseas?

Unfortunately, WVM is not equipped with the manpower for volunteerism activities overseas.

I live overseas. Can I volunteer with World Vision Malaysia?

If you are living overseas, we would advise you to volunteer with the World Vision office in that country. However, if you are back in Malaysia on vacation and would like to spend your time constructively, you are most welcome to apply as a World Vision Malaysia volunteer.

Does World Vision offer an Internship Programme?

We do not offer Internship Programme as we are unable to commit the necessary manpower and mentoring that would enrich the total learning experience of an intern.

How can my company volunteer?

Staff from different corporations can partner World Vision Malaysia by offering their time, expertise and skills at the various events organized by World Vision Malaysia. Indirectly, this will also help companies to meet their corporate social responsibility goals via staff engagement.
Volunteer Requirements & Tasks e​​

Is there an age limit?

Only volunteers aged 18 years old and above are allowed to sign up as events volunteers. Volunteers below 18 years old will be assigned office-based projects. Additionally, the parents and/or legal guardians’ written consent is required for all volunteers below the age of 18.

Are there minimum/maximum numbers of hours that I must commit to as a volunteer?

Office volunteers must be willing to commit a minimum of four (4) hours a day (or as per requested).

We ask that event volunteers commit at least one day (one shift per day) to each event.

How many events can I volunteer for?

This depends on your time and where the events are taking place. The majority of WVM events take place in key cities and towns and over weekends.

Can I volunteer if I work full time?

Most definitely! Many of our volunteers hold regular jobs but still find time and energy to volunteer with us.

What sort of tasks will I perform?

There is a variety of administrative work at the office like answering calls, data entry etc whereas events might need you to speak to the public, assist in setting up and clearing exhibitions etc.

Will I be the only volunteer on duty or do I work as part of a team?

Depending on the task, you will be assigned to work individually or in teams. Nonetheless, each volunteer will be assigned a supervisor who is usually a World Vision staff who would be more than happy to guide you along.


Volunteer Logistics e​​

How do I keep track of my volunteer hours?

You will have a Volunteers’ Log Sheet that tracks your clock-in and clock-out time that has to be initialled by your supervisor daily.

What’s the dress code for volunteers?

Dress comfortably and neatly with consideration towards the sensitivities of other people. We recommend t-shirt, long pants/jeans and comfortable shoes. Please bring a jacket in case the air-conditioning is too cold for you.

At events, if a specially designed WV T-shirt is the required, please wear that instead.

A WVM Volunteer t-shirt/specially-designed t-shirt will be given to you at the first orientation briefing.

What should I bring?

Do bring a water bottle as you might be spending considerable hours on duty or speaking to the public or even over the telephone.

For events, bring related background materials (FAQ, background information, etc). These will help you communicate knowledgeably important messages about World Vision, its work and the event to those who may be interested.

At the office, you can refill water at the dispensers. Bring your own snacks if you like snacking!

How would I know my allocated time/day?

You will be informed in advance by the Volunteer Coordinator of the day, time and venue (if not in the office) you have been assigned for volunteer work. We expect volunteers to be responsible and punctual for duty.

Please call your supervisor to notify him/her. If possible, please give your notification 2 days in advance. If you are slotted for more than one session, please re-confirm with your supervisor your availability for subsequent sessions.

Who do I talk to if I have a concern or need to adjust my schedule?

If your concern is related to the assigned task, please talk to your supervisor for advice and guidance. If your concern is related to the department to which you have been assigned or to your volunteer timetable, please talk to the Volunteer Coordinator.

Who do I meet when I arrive for duty?

The name of your supervisor and his/her telephone number will be provided in advance. If you are at the WVM office, you can ask for your supervisor or the Volunteer Coordinator.
