Samos Volunteers are welcoming refugees and asylum-seekers from the camp and shelters around Vathi to our educational and recreational programme. We are looking for support through time, donations, and sharing ideas. Our timetable changes daily and our roles vary depending on the day-to-day needs. For this reason, an open-mind and a flexible approach to work is essential. If you are a teacher, you probably won’t just be teaching!
Be it in the Alpha Centre, shelters for vulnerable families, or up at the camp, Samos Volunteers looking for volunteers to teach language classes in English, French, German or Greek, to help us conquer the gaps in education. We provide classes for both adults and children.
Do you have cooking skills? Green fingers? Artistic or musical talent? Computer skills? These are just some of the attributes we are looking for to make up our team in Samos. We love volunteers who can assist running our recreational activities, or even host their own in a safe, structured and sustainable way.
All of our volunteers help out in our warehouse with sorting donations or distributions in the camp. We also look for people who can help out with the general running of the organisation, administrative tasks, and working on reception in the Alpha Centre. Social media or communications experience is a plus!
