Who we are looking for

We are looking for team players, who are also able to work independently. We need people who are patient, who will remain professional and respect pre-existing systems, but who can bring new, fresh ideas. Our timetable, and each volunteer’s role, varies depending on the day-to-day needs. For this reason, an open-mind and a flexible approach to work are essential. If you are a teacher, you probably won’t just be teaching!

Our volunteers work in a crisis environment.

Sometimes we have to work very long hours at short notice and we have to deal with situations that we are not used to, including emergencies. For this reason, everyone applying to our organisation needs to be mentally and physically fit. Our coordinators and supervisors will provide you with support and training throughout the process.

Before applying to volunteer with us, please watch the video below to have a better understanding of the situation for refugees living in the camp in Samos and make sure that you meet all of our requirements.

More than 4,000 refugees and migrants currently reside on the Greek island of Samos, and the refugee camp with a capacity for only 700 people is bursting. Poor hygiene and harsh weather conditions are posing a threat to the migrant population.
