Volunteering in Switzerland

Our Swiss-based volunteers carry out a wide range of tasks and projects and we are always seeking enthusiasm and new ideas.

Find more information on our current local projects on the Integration page. We also need volunteers with skills in technology, public relations, journalism, law, fundraising, grant-writing, psychology / counseling, and education (especially with experience teaching German).

Read our Code of Conduct and complete this form if you are able to volunteer with us from Switzerland.

Volunteering in Greece

Due to the nature of our work in Greece, we are currently seeking female volunteers who are dynamic, mentally strong, calm and highly organised team players who are able to stay on Chios for at least 30 days.

We have a particularly strong need for volunteers with experience in psychology, sexual gender-based violence, and/or social work as well as those who are fluent in Arabic, Farsi, Sorani, or Kurmanji. Learn more about the Athena Centre and volunteer responsibilities here.

We also ask that you review our Volunteer Code of Conduct to gain an understanding of our expectations and complete this form if you are able to volunteer on-site in Greece.

Volunteering as a Translator

Due to a diverse mix of nationalities, English is the working language of our organization. However, we have an ongoing need for individuals who can assist with translations, especially in Arabic, Farsi, Sorani, and Kurmanji. Skills in German, French, and Italian are also welcome.

Complete this form if you are able to assist us with translations remotely from home or on-site in Greece.
