We are looking for teachers and youth workers to join our project from December onwards.

We are the the largest voluntary run education service for children and youth stuck on Chios Island, Greece. At the most basic level, we fulfil a fundamental right of children - to access education. In Chios, children are continually denied access to the formal education system run by the Greek Government and there are no immediate plans to integrate the children arriving into Europe into the local education system.

We have seen just how successful our programme is and want to continue it until the Government establishes a formal procedure for educating the children and youth here.

If you would like to volunteer with us, please check the requirements below and if you meet them, send your CV to nicholas@baas-schweiz.ch


The following requirements are for teachers in our school but if you are looking to join as a youth centre worker, you do not necessarily need a teaching qualification.

  • Experience teaching English either in a formal school setting or in non-formal education settings.
  • Experience working with youth in either a youth centre, summer camps or sport programmes.
  • Can commit to at least 5 weeks volunteering in Greece.

We provide shared accommodation on the Island.
