If you have any specific skills or specialties, please let us know and we will try to find a role that uses your skills in the best way possible.
Before your volunteer trip to Greece, we strongly recommend that potential volunteers create a fundraising project to help pay for travel and living expenses. We also rely completely on donations for all of our projects and need your help raising money to continue the work that we do.
