Compassion First thrives thanks to volunteers who show up everyday to advocate for the marginalized. Here are some examples of ways you can partner with us and participate in the work we're doing! 

Engagement Teams : Volunteer

Build or join a 10-day, short-term engagement trip. Compassion First is recruiting carefully screened, skilled teams to serve in Indonesia. Most teams are currently being recruited to provide updates to "Sarah's House," our new 25-bed facility in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. Come ready to serve and see the work Compassion First is doing. We need individuals and teams who can fund their way and are willing to reach out to their communities to assist in the cost of the upgrades. Sarah's House is a large facility, loaded with programming potential which will be realized through the help of those who come and serve. 

A note to potential visitors: In order to visit a Compassion First facility, a volunteer must submit to a volunteer clearance process in accordance with the Compassion First Child Protection Policy. Volunteer clearance includes a federal background check, reference checks, reading and agreeing to the Compassion First Child Protection Policy, Visitor's Policy and the Photo/Media Policy. Interaction with survivors in Compassion First care is carefully managed and not guaranteed. We appreciate your attention to these policies as we strive to provide the safest and most effective environment for those we serve. 


Banquet : Volunteer

We advocate for sex-trafficking survivors through a number of banquets throughout the year. These formal fundraising events are held nationwide. Our volunteers drive these events. We coordinate banquets that reflect Compassion First's values and fit your community. To make it a success, we need volunteers who are: coordinators with connections, planners with personality, and helpers who want to make it happen.


Office Headquarters : Volunteer

We support the work of our international staff at Compassion First's facilities through dedicated volunteers at our U.S. Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. As a volunteer, you can directly influence our work. If you live in the Portland area, we need you in our volunteer office. Help us as we work together to stop trafficking and support survivors.
