The Mission of the volunteer center is to engage volunteers to help people who need it.


Who is a volunteer?

A volunteer is a person who in his spare time without financial reward is giving their knowledge, skills and energy to benefit the people who need it. The volunteer may be any person over 15 years old, regardless of education or employment. The volunteer has the right to choose activity, duration and frequency of meetings. A volunteer does not replace the work of the staff, but is the companion and guide.

Volunteering brings not only help to others, but it is also an enrichment for the volunteers. This way they can get new friends, contacts, experience, spend your free time usefully, to appear in each new creative potential.
