with us!

Volunteers are, and always have been, the backbone of our organization. They are the real changemakers who run the activities at our community center. In 2019 only, we hosted 100+ local and international volunteers with different cultural and professional backgrounds.

Whether Turkish or Syrian, Swedish or Tanzanian, we are always ready to host dedicated individuals who are ready to share their time, energy, and skills with our community.
