WorkCamps Poposals

Every year ELIX organizes international voluntary actions (Workcamps) of short, medium and long duration in Greece and abroad, aiming to protect the environment, to preserve cultural inheritance, to promote culture and social service.

A Voluntary work program is a unique opportunity for the volunteer to make use of his free time creatively, to cooperate with people from all around the world and experience values such as peace, communication, coexistence, solidarity. Offering voluntary service, he doesn’t only contribute in making a better world. He also comes in contact with local societies of various countries, he gets to know new places and new ways of life and he learns techniques of protecting the environment and conserving traditional buildings, in a multicultural environment sensitive to difference and human rights.


Apart from the direct, tangible and countable benefits that come from the realization of a voluntary work program, the Municipality or Community also gives the inhabitants the possibility to come in contact with young people from other countries, to share with them their habits and traditions and to familiarize with the institution of voluntary service.


The voluntary work programs are realized throughout the whole year, but especially in the summer. Every program hosts 15-20 volunteers from all the world, who work 5 days a week for 6 hours a day. Two specially trained camp leaders are responsible for their coordination.
One of the necessary requirements is the ability to communicate in English, except if a different metadata is mentioned. Together with your application, you will pay a participation fee, that varies depending on the program. You have to cover your travel expenses while the organization will provide accommodation, food and insurance in case of an accident.The programs are addressed to people older than 18 years old, while there are special programs organized for teenagers, families, pensioners or people with special needs.

Guided by experts, the volunteers participate in activities such as:

  1. Protection of the natural environment, work at protected areas, opening, marking and signaling of footpaths, timberwork, planting of trees, clearing of vegetation.

  2. Preservation of cultural heritage, work on traditional buildings, masonry replacement, stone paving and dry stone masonry, care and preservation of files and exhibits, work at cultural centres.

  3. Social work, occupation of children at institutions, work at schools and children play areas, support of disabled people.

  4. Promotion of culture, participation at festivals, local festivities, cultural events, research groups

Specially trained coordinators from the organization are responsible for the group activities, concerning both living conditions and the work environment.
