EU AID VOLUNTEERS: JOIN US!
Through the EU Aid Volunteers initiative, financed by the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Department (ECHO), you can apply for a unique experience in the humanitarian aid field in different countries throughout Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
We periodically open selection procedures for volunteers who will work in our local offices in Bolivia, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Peru, Mozambique, Burundi, Burkina Faso, Lebanon, Palestine, Cambodia and Thailand.
The initiative is open to all European Citizens over 18 years of age with two different profiles:
- junior volunteers: who want to increase their skills and their professional and life experience;
- senior volunteers: professionals who have already had 5 years of experience in the humanitarian sector.
Volunteers will carry out administration tasks, disaster risk management in emergencies, promotion of women’s rights or communication activities of a humanitarian aid project, aiming to guarantee support and increase the resilience of the most vulnerable communities.
Volunteers will receive a monthly subsistence lump sum intended to cover basic needs and local transport. Accommodation, Visa fees, insurance and airfares will be covered.
Online volunteers complement the EU Aid Volunteers initiative by doing practical tasks – in areas like research, technology, translation or design – that support EU Aid Volunteers projects on the ground to reach more people and make their work more effective. For each online assignment successfully completed, online volunteers receive a certificate of completion. Online volunteering is a way of giving your time by completing a volunteering task through the internet at home, work or university. As online volunteering is done without leaving home, financial support is not provided.
How to become a volunteer?
The complete list of vacancies and requested profiles are published on the ECHO platform where you can fill out the online application form and a self-assessment questionnaire, as well as attach your Europass CV and cover letter.
