Why to become a member?

By becoming a volunteer, you will be able to use our premises for your ideas, organize events, participate in the implementation of the projects, lectures and meetings and take the most of the benefits by meeting people from different characters and cultures. It will definitely strengthen your sensitivity and add you to more international networks. With your participation, we will have a new perspective on many intercultural issues, a new vibe and more positive energy.

“There are many proven personal benefits of community volunteerism. Working together with a group of people who have different ethnicity, backgrounds, and views reduces stereotypes. Community volunteerism has also been proven to improve student’s academic success” (Boru, Nese, 2017).

According to University Health Services, studies have found that volunteering can positively impact a person’s overall mental and emotional health (uhs.wisc.edu, 2018).
