WHAT CAN YOU DO AS A VOLUNTEER?
At Colorss Foundation we have helped many volunteers and interns find something that suits them, and that they enjoy. Think about why you have decided to volunteer/intern. Is it to meet people and talk; to learn or try something different or simply to offer something back to the community? With the answers to these questions in mind, it will be easy for our staff to find something that matches your needs. Colorss offers volunteering/internship from 4 weeks to 52 weeks depending on the time you have to offer. Although we welcome interns/volunteers on a short-term basis, we are particularly interested in those who are willing to get involved for the long-term. Long-term volunteering/internship is beneficial to Colorss and to you. The longer an intern/volunteer stays, the more skills they gather. Long-term projects also enable Colorss to collect data, and create good plans to help the volunteer/intern, because when the project is finished we provide a certificate and we also keep records for any job references you need.
In addition some particular skills or professional work are served solely for long term projects, such as research, and teaching.
