Local volunteering

Volunteers are an important part of our organization. Therefore, every year we invite people to contribute to our underway activities thus creating overt and active community. We notice that by making a relationship with clients, pursuing an activity and reflecting it, volunteers get various competitions that help them to reach their personal goals.

The offers for volunteers:

  • A possibility to spend their free-time meaningfully and creatively by helping others;
  • A possibility to test yourself in a social work sphere: work with children, youth or people with mental disabilities;
  • Volunteering trainings before starting an activity;
  • Two informal educational seminars per year;
  • A chance to get organizational and team-work experience;
  • Information about volunteering opportunities in Lithuania and abroad.
