Before you fill out this form, we recommend that you read the information on our website regarding our mission, values, activities and working conditions. Carefully consider every aspect as you read. Volunteering is a very rich experience and we are happy that you are considering joining our team. Yet, working conditions can be difficult at times and for this reason, it is important that you answer honestly to all of the following questions, even regarding personal matters. This will allow us to properly support you during your stay with us.
Before starting, note that there are a few entry requirements to volunteer with Northern Lights Aid. Please read them carefully to check your eligibility.
- Be over 18 at the time of your trip- Stay for at least two weeks- Provide a copy of your criminal record*- Have a sufficient level of spoken English- Be mentally and physically capable to deal with intense working conditions
*You will be asked to submit a recent copy of your criminal record (less than 6 months) after being contacted by our team when you submit this form. Northern Lights Aid volunteers work with vulnerable groups and we must be certain that our volunteers don’t have a history of violence or abuse of any kind, or any other criminal acts. Obtaining a copy of your criminal record may take time and/or cost money, depending on your country of residence (see information page with the link below). However, note that it is a prerequisite to volunteer with us and you must submit your record no later than the day of your arrival (we strongly advise you to submit it earlier). Otherwise, even if you arrive in Greece, you will not be permitted to work with the organization. We encourage you to start the procedure to obtain a copy of your criminal record as soon as possible.
