Our Volunteer Charter
ICVolunteers is an international non-governmental organization that makes available competences of volunteers in the field of languages, new technologies, welcoming services and logistic support for projects and conferences. The organization works in the humanitarian, social, environmental and medical fields at local, national and international levels.
The volunteers of ICVolunteers are aged from 16 to over 80 years, which creates an important dynamics of intergenerational exchange.
The vision of ICVolunteers is to help develop a future where both individuals and communities can reap the benefits of personal commitment and free will. Through volunteering, we seek to link knowledge with needs.
ICVolunteers contributes to the development of society by participating in non-profit projects and conferences, and offer the possibility to people from all walks of life to actively get involved as volunteers. ICVolunteers promotes volunteerism and its recognition.
ICVolunteers is a bridge between different cultures and favors the discovery of the Other and the personal development of each individual.
ICVolunteers works in the spirit of complementarities with both the private and public sectors. ICVolunteers' activities are based on the commitment of volunteers and the cooperation with partner organizations.
In order to ensure the smooth operation of the volunteer activities, ICVolunteers has elaborated the present Charter for everyone who is getting involved in our organization as a volunteer, in order to outline both rights and obligations.
A volunteer offers his/her time out of his/her free will for the well-being of the community or society as a whole without receiving a remuneration in exchange of the services rendered.
In certain cases, we do reimburse the expenses of volunteers (e.g. costs for travel, accommodation and food).
The volunteer is motivated and committed to defend the interests of ICVolunteers.
He/she fulfills the tasks given with precision and reliability.
He/she may be in a situation where he/she is representing the organization in different activities (working groups, associations, commissions) and/or gets involved in an internal working group of ICVolunteers.
He/she respects discretion and confidentiality. Being a volunteer entails having rights and obligations that are outlined in the present Charter and confirmed by the Agreement for Volunteers of ICVolunteers.
