Our volunteers

Our volunteers come from all walks of life. Many have completed special education and disability studies. Others were inspired by people with disabilities who happen to be part of their family or group of friends. Even more of our volunteers simply felt the need to contribute to society’s betterment, putting some of their free time to use in a productive, meaningful way.

More than 100 active volunteers are part of the activities of the “Movement for Change” Association of Friends of the Disabled. We are a large group of friends full of love. We support each other and work as a team – volunteers and service users alike. We offer volunteers a chance to see their values and love distilled into actions.

Volunteer Integration Stages

ΗAs a new volunteer, your integration will be gradual, planned, substantial.  
It will be completed in four basic stages.

1

Information

Make the first move by coming to meet us. During your first visit you will have the chance to tour our facilities and find out about the way we work and the part volunteers play here.
2

Participatory Observation

Go one step further. By becoming an active participant, you will have the chance to interact with our staff and service users and feel the joy of offering your support.
3

Gradual Involvement

Get active! Your daily support of service users will gradually become more independent. Your involvement in all activities is now even more crucial.
4

Full Integration

Take initiative. You now play an active role in organizing and implementing activities. You can take part in volunteer meetings, where you are free to make your own proposals.

To volunteer is to distil your love into actions

  • "Here, you feel very strongly that you are contributing. And that is reciprocated in a way – with a smile, with a hug… And you experience many, many carefree and happy moments."
