EU Aid Volunteers initiative brings together volunteers and organizations from different countries, providing practical support to humanitarian aid projects and contributing to strengthening the local capacity and resilience of disaster-affected communities.
There are two main volunteer profiles:
Volunteers will work on different types of assignments, depending on their competence profile and experience. The activities will be in fields such as organizational development and capacity-building, project management, disaster risk management support, food and nutrition, water and sanitation, etc.
Volunteers will be deployed in countries outside the EU where humanitarian aid operations take place. They will not be deployed to countries or regions with international or non-international armed conflicts.
The length of deployment depends on the specific project the volunteer works on. This can be from 1 month to 18 months.
Those who cannot leave their country can take the opportunity to join an online volunteering platform and get in touch with organizations that need support that can be offered remotely. Specific online volunteering opportunities are published on the vacancies platform as soon as they are available.
Opportunities for both deployment and online volunteering are published on the EU Aid Volunteers Platform.
