Volunteer Application form
To volunteer with Lighthouse Relief, you need to have one of the specific skills we are looking for, be over 23 years old and stay for a minimum period of 3 weeks. Our general volunteer program in the camps on mainland is full for this summer but you can still apply to volunteer on Lesvos. Please be aware that we receive more e-mails than we have time to answer. Make sure you read through the volunteer web page before e-mailing questions, as the answers are often found there.
As the situation has changed from an emergency setting to a more permanent situation where people are stranded rather than arriving, we are not in need for general short term volunteers on the mainland anymore. We can only take a limited amount of volunteers as having too many people come and go in a place where people are living for many months can do more harm than good, however good your intentions are. We ask for your understanding, and recommend general volunteers to choose Lesvos instead of the mainland in the application.
The reply to your volunteer application can take up to 7 days. If you get accepted into our volunteer program, you will also need to take an online course in humanitarian response before your arrival. You also need to be vaccinated for Hepatitis A if working in the camps.
