Useful Information for Volunteers

1.We do not have a structured volunteer programme at Reach.
2.Our volunteers come in at all times of the year and we fit them into the projects or activities that we need help in. In order to make your attachment more meaningful we would need at least 1 week of your time and commitment.
3.Our volunteers range from secondary school students to retirees and they should be in relatively good health.
4.We do not provide allowance nor accomodation.Volunteers would have to be financially  independant. Volunteers can source accomodation from this website Cameron Highlands.com | Cameron Highlands Official Website
5.For short term volunteers we often assign them to office cleaning,  data entry and analysis,website maintenance and any project/activity planned for the week..Currently we have 2 programmes for our local school kids.
a. Mossy Forest and Biodiversity activities
b. Community Stream Investigation
6. For the month of August 2015 we have enough volunteers for our school programmes but we would probably need more volunteers in September 2015 onwards as our local volunteers leave for college.
7.For long term volunteers, they usually assist us in our research projects .Currently we are actively seeking assistance/researchers in
a. The study of the flora and fauna of our montane forests
b. The study of the ecosystems of the highland forests or related fields
c. Survey of the tourists arrivals in Cameron Highlands
8. Volunteers should give a brief background of themselves, when they plan to arrive and duration of stay. A curriculum vitae would be helpful for those who wish to volunteer for longer periods.
9. Please note that occasionally no volunteer positions are available for the period given.
