Who can become a volunteer?

 

Anyone! Anyone can become a volunteer and bring it's own contribution, even the smallest, to the world that surrounds us. The most important it's to wish for it!

If you are young: you can write an attractive CV, in which the period of volunteering can be passed as experience. We always get job offers that require a minimum of one year of experience, not necessarily in the field as well as in the workplace. Dis you know that volunteering also matters?! Secondly, you test a possible career, make contacts that can be useful in the future. You help us build a better community where you will enjoy living for decades. And last but not least you make new friends!

If you are unemployed: sitting at home certainly will not bring you the ideal job! By engaging in volunteer activities, you have the chance to gain new experiences. At the same time, you create new contacts that can help you get the job you want. So you have the chance not to "get out of hand" in terms of work, it helps you not to stand in the house.

If you are employed: by engaging in a volunteer activity, you can break the routine of daily activity and the monotony of everyday life.

If you are a family: you can spend more time together, and participating in volunteer activities brings people together. You can give a positive example to children, bringing a great plus to their education. You can express your gratitude that destiny has brought you together.

You can help us by:

As a concrete example, in the framework of the Drug Prevention and Trafficking Campaign, you can go with us to foster careersand talk to the young people about the risks of drugs and the tempting offers coming from various people.
- preparing and distributing packages for the beneficiaries of the organization (children, elderly, low-income or very large families, people with disabilities)
- organizing events (official visits, auctions, conferences)
- health promotion campaigns (gathering information about special health situations, reporting special cases and solving them)
- popularization campaigns (bringing people, institutions and companies into perspective of the Foundation's objectives, projects and campaigns to get their support in their realization).
