If you want to join the growing number of young people who volunteer in Europe and across the world, there are many places online where you can choose the best opportunity for you!

Anyone can volunteer. All you need are motivation, compassion and the willingness to work and learn from the people in the community.

There are many reasons why people decide to volunteer, usually to give something back and make a difference in the lives of others. No matter when you decide to volunteer, or what you decide to do, it will bring you countless benefits. And by doing it you will be making a real difference in the lives of individuals, the community and the environment. You will have the chance to meet new people, while raising your social awareness.

A volunteering experience can also benefit your professional career, as you will develop and learn new social, technical, team-building and problem-solving skills.

“The beauty of volunteering lies in the fact that when you give, you receive so much more in return”.
