Voluntariado en GRECIA







Please read the pinned post and google docs for more information, locations and contacts. It is essential that new volunteers read the guidance on volunteering in Athens to familiarise themselves with volunteering in Athens before starting their volunteering.

If you are new to volunteering in Athens, please consider spending your first couple of days at the Ellinikon Warehouse helping with the sorting of donations. More information below.

For Spanish speaking Volunteers we have a WhatsApp Group.

Text your number to Patricia Colón if you want to included at 34 678318021

When you are offering your help and agreeing to a date and time, please do honour that commitment. Team leaders and project managers rely on you and sometimes turn other people away if they think they have enough volunteers. Therefore please only commit to helping if you are definitely committed to helping.

For wider opportunities in Greece, please check hereWWW.GREECEVOL.INFO. New projects can also be added here.

Reminder: if you sign up to a project, please do honour that commitment. Team leaders and project managers rely on you and sometimes turn other people away if they think they have enough volunteers. Therefore please only commit to helping if you are definitely committed to helping.

Please note that we do not recommend volunteers only coming to volunteer for a day or a few hours, especially if you are new to volunteering in Athens/Greece. One day really does not give you enough time to orientate yourself and understand what is going on in this crisis. You will most likely be a hindrance rather than a help.

Web en inglés para voluntarios en Grecia,super completa



Guia Voluntariados

 El registro lo puedes hacer antes de llegar a Grecia a través de la página web http://www.ypes.gr o ya cuando estés en la zona. Como voluntario independiente, tienes que rellenar el formulario que se llama ‘Personal Profile Form’ (enlace para bajarlo: http://www.ypai.gr/cms_files/forms_engr/PERSONAL_PROFILE.doc), adjuntar una foto tuya reciente y mandar el formulario completo con la foto a semko@ypai.gr. En el caso de ir a Lesbos, recuerda que tienes que
pasar por la Oficina de la Policía o por el Ayuntamiento en Mitilini para finalizar el proceso. Este proceso sirve para registrarte con las autoridades griegas como voluntario y es obligatorio.

Como voluntarios, podemos ir a ayudar en varios de ellos. Mira los detalles en bit.ly/1MitGUf


En este mapa se han indicado en amarillo los lugares oficiales (los “Relocation Centers”) donde poco a poco se reubicarán cantidades notables de personas refugiadas. Para cada sitio estamos averiguando la necesidad de ayuda y la posibilidad de ayudar como voluntario, y si es posible hacerlo como voluntario independiente o si habrá que registrarse con un equipo.

Learn some useful phrases


  • Stay calm. This is a crisis, in historical terms, and when you first arrive, you will likely feel overwhelmed by the numbers of people and the amount of need. But minute by minute, there is almost never an emergency. Refugees are already stressed; if you are also panicking or aggressive, this only makes them more anxious. Please do not yell or otherwise contribute to tension. If you see someone working unprofessionally, mention it to a Field Coordinator (but please, no personal criticism–remember: calm.
  • Take your time, and please always put everything back in its place when you have a few free minutes. It makes everyone’s job here easier when everything is tidy.
  • If there’s downtime or you’re not sure what to do, pick up some trash. Plastic bottles, emergency blankets, discarded clothes–it is all piling up every day and can look overwhelming, but if everyone chips in a little our tent will be in much better shape.
  • Do not assume that you have a better solution or system–especially if you have recently arrived. Often things are done in a particular way for a reason, which has been worked out by many people before you. Please respect what other people are working on. If you need their help, ask–but don’t be upset or judgmental if they don’t or can’t help. Sometimes people are working on something that doesn’t look immediately urgent, or as important as what you’re doing, but in the big picture, it might very well be.
  • Prioritize refugees It seems obvious, but sometimes personality conflicts can seem more important.

Children, elderly or sick people first.

  • Respect the Police
  • If you are working in a group, always inform other people when you leave. Situations can sometimes be intense or chaotic, and whoever you’re working with is relying on your help too.
  • Ask permission for photos. Photos can be key for communicating the situation to friends back home (especially if they’re donating money!), but please be sensitive to refugees’ immediate needs and privacy. If people are actively fleeing persecution, it can endanger them to share their image and location.
