Who are we?

Collective Aid is comprised of passionate and committed volunteers who stay with us anywhere between a few weeks and multiple months on end.A core team of dedicated long-term volunteers is responsible for all organisational aspects that come with running a non-profit as well as for managing all of our projects. Find out more about our team here.

Everything we do is merely possible due to the wholehearted help of an ever-changing group of between 15 and 60 volunteers coming together from all over the world.

Who can join?

New volunteers are always welcome! Previous experience or not - we can provide the necessary training and guidance enabling volunteers to uphold our operational standards as well as enjoy the work they’re doing.

While a positive attitude and a certain degree of flexibility are paramount, we also need to ask volunteers to commit for a minimum of three weeks and be at least 20 years old.

What can I do?

Where exactly volunteers are working is usually dependant on their length of stay as well as the current needs of our projects. For a general overview please have a look at our projects here.

Once we have received your application we will get back to you about the current state of our projects as well as a suggestion of what project we think would suit you best. However, while volunteers are usually assigned to a dedicated project, it is important to retain some degree of flexibility. With the ever-changing circumstances humanitarian efforts are often facing, we sometimes have to ask our volunteers to help out with tasks different to the project they may have signed up for.
