Could this be you?

Take a look below to find out the skills we are looking for to make up our energetic and committed team of volunteers. The work in Samos is never too easy, so we need volunteers who are stress-resistant, resilient, patient, and physically and mentally fit. Also, if you happen to be able to speak Arabic, Farsi, Greek, French, Urdu and Kurdish, this is an amazing skill and we would love your help!

Please be aware that as an independent volunteer, you are expected to organise and cover the costs of your own flights, transport, accommodation and activities outside of the project.



Be it in the Alpha Centre, shelters for vulnerable families, or up at the camp, Samos Volunteers looking for volunteers to teach language classes in English, French, German or Greek, to help us conquer the gaps in education. We provide classes for both adults and children.

Activity leaders

Do you have cooking skills? Green fingers? Artistic or musical talent? Computer skills? These are just some of the attributes we are looking for to make up our team in Samos. We love volunteers who can assist running our recreational activities, or even host their own in a safe, structured and sustainable way.

All of our volunteers help out in our warehouse with sorting donations or distributions in the camp. We also look for people who can help out with the general running of the organisation, administrative tasks, and working on reception in the Alpha Centre. Social media or communications experience is a plus!
