Activities carried by Volunteer Movement's coordination and collaboration involve people from children to adults and seniors.

Volunteer Movement focuses on different elements;
1) Volunteering: to give volunteering opportunities for all, organizing different voluntary programs within and out of the organization.
2) Mobility Opportunities: to give mobility opportunities for young people, working on Erasmus+ / European Solidarity Corps program and create different mobility programs.

4) Charity Projects: to empower youth and local people from different age groups in social entrepreneuship, active participation, European citizenship, taking part in decision making process, carrying out several projects.
5) Charity Run: Volunteer Movement became a part of some platforms and associations in order to prove its transparecy and reliability regarding the financial issues and managment of the finance in the organization. After getting the memberships in related platforms, our volunteers or some other volunteer runners outside of our NGO participate charity runs/marathons to support, raise awareness and money for our declared projects.
6) Scholorship: As we support young people in many ways, last year we also added financial support of disadvantaged university students. In order to support young people during their university education, we carry out donation campains and participate charity runs. Thanks to the donations and our own organizational budget, disadvantaged university students are given monthly scholorship during their studies.
