Community Volunteers

Operation Smile UAE needs community volunteers to donate their time, talents and resources to help raise funds and awareness throughout the seven Emirates. 
Community volunteers can assist Operation Smile as we grow and develop by helping with office administration, IT and technical support, presentations, events and many other activities. 
Graphic designers, photographers, writers and face painters all have talents and skills which Operation Smile UAE can benefit from in the day to day running of the office and at the various activities and events. Simply giving us some of your time can be of enormous help.

Student Volunteers

Operation Smile UAE needs student volunteers to donate their time, talents and energy to help us raise funds and educate fellow students about the values of commitment, leadership and volunteerism. 
One of the many ways you could get involved as a student volunteer is to set up an Operation Smile club in your school, college or university. Recruit friends, fellow students and teachers to help you organise fundraising events and awareness presentations and campaigns to educate people about Operation Smile and our values. 
We also welcome support from our student volunteers outside of school hours, at our various events and activities as well as in the office, for example, helping with preparation for an upcoming event or assisting us with our database and updating contact details. 
For students who have shown exceptional dedication to our cause, there is a chance to attend an international medical mission with the specific role of educating patients, their parents and other members of the community on health, hygiene and dental issues.
