Pet shelters play an important role in Croatia, helping to rescue a high number of cats and dogs that are abandoned by their owners. Animal shelters are often overcrowded, and volunteers help to promote the health and wellbeing of the animals while giving them the best chance of being adopted.
As a Marine Conservation volunteer, you’ll help a local dive school to restore and maintain the natural state of the marine ecosystem around Croatia. You’ll be learning and using your scuba diving skills to make a real difference with ocean clean-ups and other activities to help the natural ecosystem be as pristine as possible.
As a Youth Support volunteer, you’ll act as a positive role model for students aged between 7-18 years old. Tasks include helping with homework, organizing activities and sports and assisting with general work around the center. You’ll also help to teach English in an informal way, mostly through your day to day interactions. Learning English is seen as a valuable skill, but it is often one of these students’ biggest difficulties.
