Do you have a passion for helping children in Children's Community Centre?

 

 

 

Volunteers who choose to be part of this amazing program will be based in a Children’s Community Centre on the periphery of Albania’s capital city Tirana. The centre welcomes children from different areas of Tirana outskirts, mainly belonging to Roma and Egyptian minorities, street children and children that are at risk of exploitation. Many families have migrated from different locations of Albania, mostly from the north of the country, to Tirana in search of a better life and employment opportunities.  The program offers these vulnerable children the chance to gain an education, learn life skills, partake in sports and fun activities such as arts and games and eat nutritious meals – things that are hard to access for these marginalized and impoverished children. Volunteers will find they play an essential role in teaching, caring for and inspiring these wonderful children.

Goals of this Project:

·       Provide essential teaching and companionship to vulnerable children in Albania

·       Improve the future prospects of marginalized children in Albania

·       Give vulnerable children quality care, compassion and a sense of hope

·       Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.

Become a Love Volunteer in Albania and help brighten the lives of those less fortunate!

ABOUT LOVE VOLUNTEERS

Over the years, thousands of volunteers have trusted Love Volunteers for travel abroad that provides cultural immersion alongside the chance to help those in real need. Join us now for a safe, fun, and sustainable volunteer program in Palestine for a truly memorable experience abroad!

Here's why more and more people are choosing to become a LOVE VOLUNTEER!

Need - We work directly with local charities on grass-roots community development projects. Our focus is on providing support where it is really needed - not holidays! We keep volunteer numbers at sustainable levels to meet the needs of each project - not to increase revenue!

Impact - By becoming a Love Volunteer you are saying to the world that you are a REAL volunteer and your focus is on supporting people and communities in need. You're not just a tourist and your goals include much more than selfies and hangovers. Your contribution with LV will be real and measurable. You will change lives, and one of them will be your own!

Safety - Your safety is our top priority. We have personally visited and regularly audit all of our projects and accommodations so you can rest assured that your needs will be met, whilst getting the most out of your experience.

Support - With dedicated in-country teams, you know you will have 24/7 support right there when you need it - guaranteed! From simply questions to hospital trips, we will ensure you are supported throughout your placement.

Communication - We pride ourselves in our reputation as always being available when you need us, dealing with your questions quickly, and being prompt with all communications. We are here to help you help the world!

Value - We strive to make volunteering abroad affordable and accessible to everyone. Our program fees are lower, our registration fees are lower - and we encourage you to compare!

Security - We have placed thousands of international volunteers in meaningful voluntary service projects around the world. We have the experience and the reputation, so you know you are in good hands!

Friendship - One of the benefits of volunteering is that you'll meet new people and develop friendships that will last a lifetime. This is one of the true benefits of volunteering and we encourage you to make the most of the unique opportunity to develop these cross-cultural friendships.

Free time - We realize that everyone needs a break and encourage our volunteers to have a look around where and when possible. All you need to do is let us know what you want to do and we will do our very best to make it happen for you!

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to help create a brighter future for people living in marginalized communities of Albania. While this project is best suited to those pursuing a career in the fields of anthropology, social work, social entrepreneurship and/or economics, volunteers who simply wish to be involved in a more ‘varied’ project are also welcomed as there are many ways you can assist and individual projects can often be tailored to suit the particular skills and interests or each participant. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic understanding of Albanian in order to communicate effectively with staff and students. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:
