Global Health Care Volunteer Program

Every child and community deserves a chance to be healthy and strong. We can multiply our impact on global wellness many times over when we join forces and work for a common goal. If health care is your specialty, or this is an area where you want to gain valuable experience, sign up for our global health care volunteer program. You’ll actively participate in medical missions, take a leading role in delivering health awareness campaigns or bring the elements of health education to remote areas, many for the very first time. You will be the face of health and wellness for many of the children in the next generation of African leaders.

Global Mentoring Volunteer Program

Education is freedom. Only when children have the freedom to learn how the world works will they be able to make it a better place. If knowledge and instruction are your talents, become an educator in our global mentoring volunteer program. Share your enthusiasm and knowledge as a mentor to a range of children, work as a one-on-one tutor or use advanced collaborative communications technologies to reach African students as an online tutor.

Global Event Volunteer Program

The world needs to know about the changing conditions in Africa. Specialists in marketing, communications and networking can put those skills to work for philanthropy on a grand scale. Join us in bringing together the sponsors and decision-makers who make it possible for us to deliver health care and education services across Sub-Saharan Africa. As a global event volunteer, you’ll assist in the planning and hosting of events for the Tess Foundation, Inc., including our annual gala events where we recognize the contributions of our sponsors and philanthropist across the globe. Annual galas take place only in Nigeria and the USA.

Which Countries Do We Serve Now?
