Rýchla rota (Rescue Rangers) is a programme for volunteers who do not conduct regular volunteering activity but they help in one-time events in selected organisation. The aim of the programme is to involve those people into volunteering who want to help but they don’t know how exactly or they are unable to conduct volunteering on a regular basis in one particular organisation. However, they have one thing in common and that is the will to help.
How does the volunteering programme work
Rýchla rota is a group of people in the Bratislava Volunteer Centre (BVC) database. Those volunteers who agree to participate in the programme are directly addressed via e-mail by the programme coordinator. The coordinator continuously and based on actual needs and offers sends to registered volunteers updated list of offers from organisations in Bratislava region. This mostly concerns big one-time events in the area of environment, culture, sports and social area.
Volunteers apply for the activity based on their own preferences and depending on where they want to help.
