Volunteering on Lesvos, Samos or Chios is an experience of a life-time. The trip consists of activities that vary. We promise to provide emotional support through every step of your journey and be ready to make lasting connections with people from all over the world.
We are accepting applications for spring! However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we have smaller visiting volunteer teams in our locations.
