Do you like to volunteer?
A Red Cross of RNM volunteer is a person who performs volunteer activities for the national society, occasionally or regularly. Volunteering in the Red Cross is an activity that is motivated by the free will of the person to volunteer, and not by the desire for material or financial gain or external social, economic or political pressure and is intended for the benefit of vulnerable people in the community in accordance with the Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.
Where can you volunteer?
In each of the 33 Red Cross branches and the City Red Cross of Skopje there are persons responsible for coordinating and organizing the work of volunteers at the local level. The work of the volunteers is organized in accordance with the interests and competencies of the volunteers and the program and project activities implemented by each Red Cross branch at local level.
How do we prepare our volunteers?
Before engaging the volunteer in Red Cross activities, the individual goes through appropriate orientation training and gets acquainted with the Red Cross organization, tasks and activities that are implemented at national and local level.
The volunteer receives appropriate equipment and uniform with a clear description of duties, duration of engagement and is introduced to the rights and obligations during the volunteer engagement.
Volunteering is an opportunity for individuals to be part of a wider social group in the community and to build new friendships, cooperation and companionship.
During the volunteer work the individual has the opportunity for personal development and upgrading, professionally and personally. Volunteers have opportunities to learn and participate in specialized training in various fields organized by the Red Cross at local, national and international level.
