Why volunteering with SCI?

Posted by projects on Sep 08

The participants of a volunteer workcamp in the asylum seekers center in Ter Dennen in Belgium explain why it makes sense to volunteer with SCI. The two-week long workcamp of VIA VZW Belgium (the Flemish SCI branch) took place in August 2017 with 8 participants from 6 different countries. The aim of the workcamp was to promote peace by organizing activities for the children in the asylum.

Why Youth choose volunteerism

Posted by projects on Sep 04

This article from our Online Volunteers project and it doesn’t reflect the ideas of SCI movement, just the author's point of view.

In recent years, the focus of volunteer organizations has been shifted to appeal better to young volunteers. According to the United Nation’s Youth and Volunteering report, young people (between the ages of 15-24) devote $35 billion annually in volunteer hours. Each year, over 6,500 people between the ages of 18 and 30 are catalyzed towards remote volunteer efforts online, representing 65% of all online volunteers.
