VOLUNTEERING

MOm relies on the essential help of its volunteers. Nothing of what MOm has achieved in the past 25 years would have been achieved without the time and effort dedicated by its volunteers.

 

We thank them wholeheartedly for their invaluable help!

How can I help as a volunteer

• Public Awareness and Sensitization Program

The Summer Volunteer Public Awareness and Sensitization program of MOm is carried every year at the Information Center of MOm at Patitiri at the island of Alonissos at the Northern Sporades Islands. Each volunteer position with the program lasts for two weeks and the volunteers:

• Inform the visitors of the Information Center of MOm on the endangered status and the threats to the Mediterranean monk seal and the marine environment and of ways to contribute to their conservation.
• Help promote the souvenirs of MOm.
• Attract new members to the family of MOm.
• Make holidays at one of Greece’s most ecologically important areas!

The participants in the Public Awareness and Sensitization Program must speak the Greek language.

THE SEMINAR WILL NO LONGER BE TAKING PLACE IN ATHENS. THE VOLUNTEERS WILL ATTEND THE SEMINAR AFTER THEIR ARRIVAL IN ALONISSOS.
