    We are looking for volunteers now! Welcome!
    We are an NGO and we operate a community center for the residents of a nearby refugee camp.
    We provide psycho-social support throughout our different programs: Female Friendly Space, Children Friendly Space, Educational Program (English and German lessons), Arts and Recreation program (yoga/fitness/dance/guitar/piano lessons), and Warehouse (distribution of dry food/ clothes/hygiene products).
    We are located in Serres, Northern Greece, about an hour away from Thessaloniki.
    The residents of the camps are from eighteen different nationalities and backgrounds.

    Due to the COVID pandemic and government restrictions, our community centre was closed for a long while and we are now reopening, with the Education Programme, Female Space and Children Space having restarted, but we cannot wait to be able to be fully functional again and go back to our lively and wholesome normal activities. We are also continuing with our Distribution Programme and doing extra activities like gardening and art therapy sessions.

    This is how it usually goes: you send us your e-mail, read our information pack, check which programme(s) you identify the most, and fill out a form that would be provided, talking a little bit about your experiences, motivation, and which programmes you would like to join. If the form is successful, we invite you to an interview and after that, the final decision is made.

    Skills preferred: English / German teacher (experience, TEFL, or strong interest and organizational skills), experience working with children, experience working with women and girls.

    Minimum commitment: 6 weeks.

    Thank you very much for your interest and we look forward to your messages!

    Greece Team.

    We can provide different types of volunteer opportunities :

    - Female Friendly Space volunteers: facilitate activities like knitting day, spa day, movie day, ensure that the space is safe, socialize with the residents.

    - Children Friendly Space: facilitate different activities for children aged 2 to 6 (sensory games, role play, construction, etc.), ensure the safety of the space, help the children to interact in an appropriate way and to express themselves.

    - English teachers (TEFL and CELTA or previous experience preferred)
    - German teachers (no certification or experience necessary, only a good/fluent level of German)

    The volunteers are expected to help about 5h a day, to attend the team meeting once a week and sometimes to help out in other programs if necessary.
    They'll have two days off every week (Sundays and Mondays)

    We do not provide meals.

    UPDATE : Since we have smaller teams from now on, all volunteers are expected to contribute a little bit to all of the programmes!
