Why Volunteer?

The youths can benefit from the volunteering experience under the National Volunteer Service Program on many levels, taking into consideration the program’s desired goal, outcome and output; to increase youth civic engagement, which in the medium term will contribute to improve social cohesion across communities and regions, by expanding youth volunteerism particularly in communities other than their own and by improving the employability of youth through enhanced soft skills. Having said that, each youth volunteer will benefit from 20 hours of soft skills training and 80 hours of volunteering which will allow him/her to eventually be a certified volunteer from the Ministry of Social Affairs.
