Volunteers are Vital

Executive Director, Chris Coats, covers what volunteers do and how vital they are to Trailblazer Foundation.  Chris shares the opportunities volunteers may have in seeing the countryside, meeting the people and see the impact being made through our four programs:  Health, Food Security, Education and Economic Development.  


We welcome individuals interested in volunteering

As a smaller organization that is committed to doing more with less, interns, volunteers and fundraisers are vital to Trailblazer Foundation's success.  With respect to volunteering, we have three types of needs, and therefore three types of opportunities

Short Term Volunteers

Short Term Volunteers who typically commit to 1-2 weeks, and help us with our field work in Cambodia (working with our local staff on water filters). Short Term Volunteer -- click here.  

Long Term Volunteers

Long Term Volunteers who offer 2-10 hours a week of support from their home, for a more extended period of time, helping us with some aspects(s) of our operations, fundraising, and/or marketing (typically, working with one of our U.S. based staff).  Long Term Volunteer -- click here.  


If you have a professional or academic background in any of the fields listed below, or other skills and interests that you’d like to offer, we look forward to talking with you about how we might enlist your help – whether in Cambodia and/or the United States.  Please let us know if you want to explore the idea of supporting Trailblazer as a volunteer in one of these areas. 

  • Communications 
  • Marketing 
  • Fundraising 
  • Graphic Design 
  • Photography/Videography 
  • Social Media 
  • Literature Reviews 
  • Case Studies Research 
  • Technical Writing 

Whether you want to help us in Cambodia or from your home, on a short term basis or for a more substantial amount of time, we expect that your greatest satisfaction will come from knowing you helped any number of rural Cambodian families begin rising up out of subsistence living, toward a place of sustainable living. We look forward to hearing from you, and finding a way to help Trailblazer meet our mission while keeping our costs down. Thanks. ​  We welcome individuals interested in volunteering - the difference being the length of your time with us, the type of support you provide, and where you work.
