Current volunteer opportunities

Volunteer Request

 There are 2 types of volunteers: Homestay/Home Visit Volunteers and Language Volunteers (Interpreter/Translator).

Homestay/Home Visit

 We introduce Homestay/Home Visit to foreigners who have an interest in Japanese lifestyle and culture, and can provide a reputable Japanese organisation as a guarantor. Foreign Students who have a student visa and an attendance certificate from their school are eligible to participate.

Homestay/Home Visit Duration

 In general, the duration of Homestays is up to one week, and Home Visits are about 2-3 hours excluding meals.

Those who wish to have a Homestay/Home Visit

 Please submit the required application forms to FIEF “Kokusai Hiroba” 3 weeks in advance.

Note
  • The Homestay/Home Visit is designed to give foreigners and Fukuoka Prefecture citizens a meaningful opportunity to participate in international exchange, and is not to be used to save on accommodation and meal expenses.
  • Neither FIEF nor host family will be lible for any accident or injury that might occur during the Homestay/Home Visit.
  • The host family accepts the visitor voluntarily, and will not accept any remuneration. Personal expenses including transportation, telephone, outside meals, dry cleaning etc. are to be borne by the visitor.
  • Please understand that in some cases we may not be able to provide a host family.

Language Volunteer (Interpreter/Translator)

 On request, FIEF introduces language volunteers to public organizations, international exchange groups, or groups and individuals who have an interest in Japanese lifestyle and culture and have been approved by interview with FIEF. As a rule the activities do not involve an overnight stay. Please cover transport costs when they arise.
