There are numerous opportunities to volunteer! There are many options, including working individually or in groups, leading workshops and projects, socialising with young people, and coming up with your own ideas. We provide mentoring support, free introductory training, regular monthly meetings, and bi-annual gatherings for all volunteers. You can also perform mandatory optional content or an internship while volunteering.

You're welcome!

We encourage young people to volunteer, even if they are under the age of 18, because we are a youth-friendly volunteer organisation that provides them with additional mentoring support. We have worked with international volunteers as well as EVS (European Voluntary Service) volunteers who supplement programmes in youth centres.

If you would like to volunteer, please send your CV and motivational letter to maja.majcen@mladizmaji.si. We are excited about your contribution and working together on various interesting projects!

What do our volunteers say?

“As a volunteer at Young Dragons Črnuče this school year, I did mandatory optional content. I completed the Nature Photography project because I am visiting the photography department and am interested in photography. With this experience, I learned a lot and met new people, including those my age. I would recommend this method of completing mandatory optional content to all high school students.”

Lea Medica, completion of mandatory optional content

“With my internship at Young Dragons Črnuče, I finished my diploma in social work. If you are creative, athletic, open-minded, or think outside the box and want to work with children, Young Dragons is the organisation for you. I was most interested in music, so I joined the Young Dragons of Črnuče. However, you have many other options; choose the one that is best for you.  I wholeheartedly recommend the Young Dragons! <3”

Suzanne Popelier, a student from Belgium

“At Young Dragons, I volunteer at the Borc Community Center. In less than a year of volunteering, I gained many new insights, discovered what I want to do with my life, and indirectly discovered what I don’t want, and a plethora of new opportunities opened up for me. Furthermore, volunteer work has convinced me to write a master’s thesis on this topic. So, in a way, volunteering motivated me to complete my studies. Maybe the only thing I regret is that I didn’t volunteer sooner :).”

Nežka Vrhovec, volunteer

“I’ve been volunteering at Young Dragons for 7 years. I took part in a variety of events and, in 2018, was named the Young Dragons’ best volunteer, receiving recognition from the country’s President. Later, based on my volunteer experience, I was hired in the field of education. I enjoy volunteering and assisting others; it gives me great joy to put a smile on people’s faces with my assistance.”

Danijela Mijatovič, volunteer

“I’ve been volunteering at Young Dragons since I was 17 years old. I’ve been the event’s grill master since the beginning of the Plata project – with football against discrimination. That’s how I keep track of everything, from cleaning the grill to making a grocery list. Barbecuing reminds me of my childhood, when my father and I baked food for the entire family, and it always brings me joy. I especially enjoy it when people gather around the fire, I serve them delicious food, and they complement me.”
