Precisely, when I was thinking about volunteering somewhere, I just saw in the street a board, in front of ELREC’s office, asking for volunteers, so I checked on the internet what ELREC was about and then I found the place where I wanted to volunteer. I found a place where people with strong social commitment are working to make our planet a better place. It is a multicultural environment and they make me feel like an actual staff member.
In my current job, I don’t utilise the skills related to my educational background in Fine Arts and Media Communication, but it gives me some spare time so I can volunteer and use these skills for the people’s benefit. In ELREC, I have the opportunity to develop and share those skills.
I’m coming to the office from October 2017 and I’m helping Didem with the website, uploading new information, events and anything. My skills are also available to anyone in the office, I am happy to help.
