Description

Become part of an initiative that aims to make a real difference in the lives of youth in Moldova. The Community Development program in Causeni allows you to inspire and motivate young people through a range of activities and events.

As a volunteer, you will take on responsibilities that involve youth work and event organizing and facilitation. You will also assist in workshops and seminars that focus on human rights, cultural diversity, social inclusion, healthy lifestyle, and active community involvement. All these are designed to bring awareness, to empower, and to encourage young people so they continue to make a positive change in their community for years to come.

There is a lot of flexibility and scope to put forward your ideas and realize these while working with a local team. Some past events have included local action groups, cultural evenings, youth talent festivals, a children’s fair, fun runs, and sports events.

Throughout the program, you will be with one of our friendly local host families, where two delicious home-cooked meals are provided daily. You will also have the opportunity to meet and socialize with like-minded people.

Highlights

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!
