You can help change a child's life by sharing your time, talent and resources as a local community volunteer. We need your help to share our cause, raise awareness of cleft conditions and the lack of access to safe surgical care and treatment and raise funds — so that children across the globe can receive free, life-changing surgery from our Operation Smile medical volunteers.

If you are looking for community volunteer ideas that make a difference, please download our Community Volunteer Fundraising Toolkit below. Our community volunteer opportunities allow you and your group to use your special talents to help heal children's smiles worldwide.


Also, feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about our volunteer opportunities or with your community volunteer ideas.



“Every child that has a facial deformity is our responsibility. If we don’t take care of that child, there’s no guarantee that anyone else will.”

- Kathy Magee, Operation Smile Co-founder
