Join the Volunteering Circles!

CVS-Bulgaria is looking for motivated ESC volunteers to join their long-term initiative “Volunteering Circles II”, which consists of several circles: Volunteering, Social Inclusion and Integration, Human Rights and Art and Culture.
Each circle has its main focus but the volunteers will work as a team and will be included in all the tasks and events provisioned within the project. Along with the regular activities the volunteers will be included in several complimentary activities envisaged in the project. The organization is always open for suggestions coming from the volunteers and answering the current needs of the target groups we work with. We encourage and support our volunteers to learn, grow and realize their potential through serving the community!

The practicalities of the project are arranged according to the European Solidarity Corps guidelines, allowing the volunteers to enjoy a free participation. All necessary costs for the implementation of the project are covered, including food and pocket money, international, local transport and insurance, accommodation and utilities (when applicable). According to the rules of the funding program, the volunteers must be 18 to 30 years old (volunteers who have not reached the age of 31 upon applying are welcome).
