Join the team, make a difference: Free The Children is looking for passionate and dedicated world changers.

Do you want to change your neighbourhood? Or help fight poverty in the developing world? Are you passionate about social justice issues? Do you want to join a team that encourages you to search for – and enact – solutions that make a difference?

Every day from our headquarters in Toronto, to our regional offices in Vancouver, Montreal, Palo Alto, California, and London, UK, our young staff pushes the envelope of what is possible for a charitable organization. Some of us work in offices, and others hit the road to share stories and raise awareness on the front lines.

We run domestic empowerment programs and leadership training in schools and communities, inspiring young people to become socially conscious global citizens. We create life-changing We Days – attended by tens of thousands – in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal. So far we have reached more than one million young people through our programs in North America alone. But we also help young people to become agents of change for their peers around the world – whether in Kenya, Ecuador, India, China and Haiti. Together, we have already built more than 650 schools worldwide.

Started by 12-year-old Craig Kielburger and a group of his classmates in 1995, Free The Children now employees 400. Most are recent graduates. Our average age is 24.

We offer a challenging and intellectually stimulating work environment.

As a leading-edge charity, we strive to keep our administrative costs low. That said, all salaries of Me to We employees in North America are in line with either Imagine Canada’s study of compensation in the charitable sector, or Charity Navigator in the United States. We also supplement earnings with many opportunities, including mentorships, skills-improvement workshops, health benefits and exceptional leadership opportunities.

You also get exposure and access to some of the greatest leaders and thinkers of our time. Former Prime Ministers, Nobel laureates, activist rock stars and Supreme Court justices pass through our offices and make themselves available to help our staff develop their considerable skill base. We arm our employees with a wealth of skills and experience that not only benefits Free The Children, but also prepares you for careers in the corporate world, or as teachers or administrators or development specialists.

Free The Children strives to be the top employer of young people in Canada. If you want to change the world and you are up for the challenge, we want to hear from you.
