Volunteer in Greece

Greece is known for its cultural heritage and stunning island landscapes. There are also opportunities to give back while visiting Greece; if you want to volunteer abroad in animal and sea-life conservation, community development, or education, Greece is an ideal volunteer abroad destination.

Common Volunteer Abroad Projects in Greece

Animal & Sea-Life Conservation. With access to both the European continent and a vast marine ecosystem within the Mediterranean, animal and wildlife conservationists are always needed. If you want to work with sea turtles, there are especially opportunities in this area.

Community Development. Many volunteers are surprised to learn that more than half of Greece’s youth is unemployed. The young and the old need assistance given that the government is helpless to provide it itself. Teaching English and basic syntax to elementary-level students is a great way to improve the community.

Education. While many visitors to Greece spend their time learning about the history and significance of Greece to Western culture, you can volunteer abroad to help teach Greek students in a variety of subject areas. The most common opportunity to volunteer in education in Greece is by teaching English and helping students prepare for higher education.

Requirements to Volunteer in Greece

As part of the Schengen Visa zone, most volunteers can visit Greece for up to 90 days without needing a visa. If you plan to volunteer in Greece for longer than 90 days, be sure to check with your volunteer program coordinator to arrange this.
