EVS Diary


BVC is a civic association working in the area of promotion and development of volunteering in Bratislava region. The role of this organization is to promote volunteering among citizens of Bratislava, to motivate them for volunteering and to match them with suitable organizations, but also to cooperate with all NGOs, public institutions, hospitals, schools, social care centres in Bratislava which are involving volunteers into their activities and look for suitable volunteers for them. BVC is also implementing various campaigns with the goal to increase the number of people in Bratislava who are actively volunteering such as Week of Volunteering or Volunteer Fair. We are also offering training and supervision for volunteer coordinators. In addition to that, BVC is looking for ways how to involve foreigners living in Bratislava into volunteering as there is quite a large number of them and they might be a great resource of skills and knowledge. At least, but not last, we are also running our own volunteer programs. You can find more about us here.
