Become a volunteer

Become a Still I Rise volunteer: become the change in the world.

Our Youth Centers and International Schools always need motivated and competent volunteers to take care of our children, our projects and the facilities where we work. We are always looking for people interested in donating part of their time and abilities to enrich our projects.

My experience in Mazí was remarkable. I often found myself thinking about how lucky I was to be surrounded by such good people, all there for one cause: to do something great for the kids. The kids were our inspiration day by day. I taught them not just the alphabet or the planets in the solar system, but also some complex things, like how it is to live in Europe or how to treat everybody equally. I’m proud of all the volunteers I’ve met. I’m so proud of Mazí and Still I Rise.

We believe in ethical voluntary work that prioritizes the beneficiary. 

There is no fee to become a Still I Rise volunteer
