 to TEACH others



at social institutions for children and elderly people, cultural institutions, schools, kindergartens, hospitals, natural parks and other places, where volunteer labour, information or any kind of external support is most needed.



-   Each company should appoint a coordinator for the volunteer day, and, if needed – a coordinator for each location/city, where employees will be volunteering. The coordinator will be responsible for sending out the invitation to company’s employees, signing up the groups for each project on BCAF website and communicating with AmCham/BCAF if needed.


-  It is possible to apply for another types of voluntary work or location, which are not listed here - we will do everything possible to help with organization, just describe your ideas in detail and contact us – please, remember to give us the contact details of the coordinator/volunteer, who is responsible for this project/location and, if possible, the contact details of the institution/organisation that will be hosting the volunteers. Please contact us with details about your project till May 13, 2011.


  - There is no participation fee for the companies; however companies are expected to cover the expenses of their volunteer project, such as transportation costs, materials for the project (gloves, paint, brooms, etc.), any food, etc. The company coordinator is responsible for contacting the hosting organisation/s and arranging the details about payment and delivery of the necessary materials for the volunteer day /where applicable/.


- The company could provide a financial donation for any of the projects, even if you cannot participate with volunteers.


How to register




Step 1. Prepare a list of volunteers and register the numbers for each location on BCAF website: http://www.volunteering.bcaf.bg/dobrovolci.aspx  




We will appreciate if the registrations per company are done by one person – the company coordinator for the volunteer day.
