Unlock a World of Opportunities with IHF's GLD Program in Indonesia!


Are you an Indonesian citizen with aspirations of leading an institution, school, or non-profit? Look no further than IHF's Global Leadership Development (GLD) program, available at our Jakarta, Bali, and Medan centers (Yayasan). The best part? While foreign legacy students pay for this service, Indonesian citizens receive FREE training along with a small stipend and room and board.



IHF, an award-winning International Non-profit established in 2001, is on a mission to (1) educate impoverished children, igniting their highest potential and fostering loving, healthy communities, and (2) enlighten global citizens through hands-on experiences, both online and in person. We provide a platform for learning and practicing leadership skills, welcoming participants from kindergarten to retirement age.


Join our IHF Indonesia Center for the Global Leadership Development (GLD) program and make a genuine impact during your stay as a volunteer.
