Application Process

To apply to the Working Boys’ Center Volunteer Program, please follow the steps below.

1. Contact our Development Director Caitlin McGuire at to discuss your reasons for wanting to volunteer, the volunteer requirements, and the application process.

2. After your conversation with Caitlin, if you remain interested in the opportunity, will send you an e-mail with an application to the Working Boys’ Center. Please return your filled out application with your résumé and cover letter to give us greater insight into your qualifications, passions, and experiences.

3.  After reviewing your application, cover letter, and résumé, if you are a qualified candidate, Caitlin will notify you and send you a contract to be signed should you commit to being a Year Long Volunteer. A potential volunteer should read this carefully. If you wish to abide by all terms in the contract and think the Center is the right volunteer experience for you, sign the contract and return it to Caitlin with a second letter saying that you have decided to serve in Quito under the terms prescribed in the contract.

4. Upon receipt of your signed contract, Caitlin will send you more volunteer information and papers you will need to get your visa. At this point, you are considered a ‘confirmed volunteer.’

Please note that the application process is not complete until all four steps have been completed.

If you would like to talk to a former volunteer to ask questions or receive advice once you have been accepted into the program, please let Caitlin know at and she will connect you to the resources you seek.
