Volunteering opportunities

GAIA organises and send volunteers to short term voluntary projects, commonly known as ‘workcamps’ and long term voluntary projects through different programs such as European Solidarity Corps or Weltwärts. A short term voluntary project is a unique form of volunteering, bringing together people from different countries, cultures and backgrounds to live and work together with local communities for a period of two to three weeks. A long term volunteering can last between 2 and 12 months. Though ESC program young people from Kosovo can take part in volunteering activities in any country of the EU, while Weltwärts program offers projects only in Germany. GAIA also hosts volunteers for short or long term periods in different programs around Kosovo. For more information get in touch with us.
