Volunteer Expo – Be you the change in others’ lives!

By organizing this event, we wanted to encourage young people to get actively involved in their communities and to address social problems through volunteering.

We felt it was important to raise young people’s awareness of volunteering with an interactive programme to demonstrate the beauty and diversity of volunteering and its impact on the community.

The ninety-minute programme was open to school and university groups by pre-registration.

The activity started with a photo exhibition, followed by a discussion, giving the participants an insight into the work of our organization and its volunteers.

After exploring the volunteering opportunities we provide for them, we continued the day by trying out a board game on volunteering. The purpose of the board game was to raise young people’s awareness of volunteering and social issues.

The photo exhibition was open from the 1st of October to the 30th of November in the conference room of Caritas House. During this time, just over 150 people took part, with many more volunteers signing up shortly afterwards. All this proves that our event was a success.

We thank the Mureș County Council for their support!
