Zaatar NGO - Volunteer Application


Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Zaatar! Zaatar is run and managed by volunteers – we cannot do this without you. Volunteers come from countries all over the world bringing a variety of backgrounds, strengths, and passions to our organization.

Generally, we recruit for volunteers between 1 and 6 months after the current date. If you submit an application for a time when we do not require volunteers, you will not receive a response

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old at the time of application.

This application takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and should be finished in one sitting.

Volunteers with Zaatar are primarily involved in helping us run the Orange House. Most of our volunteers are generalists—covering shifts (days, evenings, or nights) and doing whatever is needed. In addition volunteers with relevant skills and backgrounds assist with teaching classes and offering a variety of activities. Our volunteers are proactive, suggesting activities and offerings to enhance what we are currently doing.

All volunteers must complete the following application and clear a background check before volunteering with any of our programs. A copy of your passport and a criminal background check are required after your acceptance prior to your arrival in order to gain eligibility with our team.

WE REQUIRE A TWO WEEK MINIMUM STAY. This generally requires 16 days in Athens: one day for arrival and one day for departure. INTERNSHIPS REQUIRE AT LEAST SIX WEEK COMMITMENT

We offer a volunteer apartment to accepted applicants at the cost of 12 Euro per night. We cannot confirm availability of this apartment prior to the acceptance of the application. Preference is given to long term volunteers.

Volunteers should be proficient in the English language. Fluency in languages other than English is NOT required.

PLEASE NOTE: Zaatar does not have funds to cover volunteer expenses. If you are chosen to volunteer with Zaatar, you are responsible for covering all personal expenses including accommodation.

If you are applying with a friend or group, everyone must complete separate applications.
