Volunteering at HI Slovenia
Hostelling International is a global association of Youth Hostels. We are a charity and our focus has always been on social empowerment. For the 2017 Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development we have developed a busy program to address ten! different areas of sustainability.
In June we spoke about Staff and volunteers. In the different national associations and Hostels there are many volunteers working without which the charity would not survive. At the same time volunteering with HI gives young people of all background great work experience, opens their minds and they meet lots of interesting people.
Here is a great example of how HI Slovenias great work is highly supported and depending on their amazing group of people who volunteer for the association in their free time:
Most of HI Slovenia’s work is done by great volunteers who decide to spend their free time and knowledge promoting youth mobility and the development of youth travel. They contribute through participation in promotional campaigns, journalism and various interesting projects both in Slovenia and abroad. HI Slovenia’s volunteers put in 4,500 hours of their time in 2016! Cheers for you dear volunteers, you make the world go round!
