Week of Volunteering
We live in a place that we create. Create with us and get involved in Bratislava Week of Volunteering in September!
Volunteer Fair is a way of helping not only organizations but volunteers as well. It is designed for organizations which are working with volunteers and want new volunteers but also for people who want to begin with volunteering and don´t know what type of position would suit them best.
Volunteering program "Som tu pre teba" is focused on tutoring and spending time with children from socially underdeveloped families from crisis centre in Bratislava. This program runs individually, one-on-one, throughout the duration of the program.
Rýchla rota is a volunteer programme for volunteers who do not participate in regular volunteering, but in one-time activities in chosen organizations.
Čítankovo (Story time) is an intergenerational volunteering programme within which seniors read to children in nursery schools in Bratislava. Čítankovo brings to seniors and children living in Bratislava an opportunity to know each other by means of stories and enjoy books together.
In 2016 we have decided to continue in the tradition of awarding volunteers on a regional level.
V-skills for employment is an online tool through which volunteers can become aware, name, record and demonstrate competences which they gained or developed during their volunteering activities.
The mission of Bratislava Volunteer Centre is uniting those who want to help organization which need help with their everyday activities, as well as teaching organizations how to work with volunteers.
From April to December 2014 we collaborated with The Platform of Volunteer Centres and Organizations on a project focused on inclusive volunteering for young people (under the age of 30) called Volunteering for everyone.
