To volunteer at PIKPA camp, you need to have one of the specific skills we are looking for, be 23+ years old and stay for a minimum period of 8 weeks. This application form is to join the Camp Sustainability team, which includes housing, distribution of non-food items and maintenance/construction, including carpentry and gardening. The Camp Sustainability team is part of the camp operations team.
The context on the island has changed from emergency to a more permanent situation where people are staying on Lesvos for a longer duration of time. We are not in need of general short term volunteers as having many people come and go from camp can do more harm than good, however good intentions may be. Our primary concern is the camp's residents, which includes some of the most vulnerable cases on the island. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
As we receive more emails than we are able to respond to please ensure you read our website thoroughly http://lesvossolidarity.org
before e-mailing questions, as the answers can often be found there.
Responses to volunteer applications can take up to 10 days. The next stage is a Skype interview with the Camp Sustainability team facilitator. If you join the operations team there will be a 2 week trial period. Equally, if your plans change prior to arrival, please give us 5 days notice. We expect volunteers to be on camp between 4-6 hours a day, 5 days per week.
Thank you for your interest, we look forward to hearing from you,
The Camp Sustainability Team, PIKPA
