Who we are looking for

Volunteering with us is an exciting and rewarding experience. We work in a highly challenging and demanding environment, where your time and energy can have a real impact.

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!

 
At the Alpha Centre, we teach English, French, German, Greek and Spanish at a range of levels, along with functional skills such as computer and CV classes.

In the morning and afternoon, we run kids’ activities up at the camp. From songs to arts and crafts, volunteers take it in turns to plan activities for the day ahead.

Our women-only activities include cooking sessions, dancing, art, massage, music, and a safe space for their young children to play. The women can relax, chat and enjoy some tea.

All of our volunteers will help out at some point in our warehouse. Donations come from all over the world and need to be transported to our centre and other locations.

With hundreds of refugees coming to class each day, we have a team of volunteers cleaning the toilets, answering questions, and filling up the tea!

We go to the camp twice a day to give tickets to beneficiaries and make sure that everyone gets a chance to have their clothes washed and dried.
