Can I volunteer to help?

Since we are a youth association, our volunteers are students between the ages of 18 and 30. Anyone can become part of the Project 2030 Initiative. You have to be internationally-minded, motivated to help us educate, empower and inspire youth, and have some spare hours every month to attend our meeting and possibly events. Nevertheless, to make sure that our team is as well put together and as driven as possible, you do need to go through a short screening process to become part of our team.
