Want to Volunteer in Jordan? Check out these local non-profits…

One of the most rewarding and empowering feelings is to actively support a cause we feel passionate about. There are many ways to do this, you can always donate money for example, but if you don’t have the finances to do so, you can instead donate your time. If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity in Jordan (mostly based out of Amman), below you can find a list, organized by category, of non-profit organizations looking for a little extra manpower to run their cause.
