Become a volunteer

Amel Association International (Amel) was created in 1979, in Lebanon. Amel works through 30 centers, 6 mobile medical units, 2 mobile education units and 1 protection unit since more than 4 decades in the poorest regions of Lebanon, from Beirut and its South Suburbs to Mount Lebanon, Bekaa and South Lebanon. Amel is offering accessible services and programs for all in following fields: education, medical, psychosocial, professional training, rural development, child protection and human rights promotion.

Thanks to the devotion of thousands of volunteers, Amel’s humanitarian mission has had a local and worldwide impact.

Today, as we keep striving to ensure dignity and basic human rights for all, volunteers boost our impact and support us in carrying out our purpose.

If you believe in the dignity and rights of all people and want to join our volunteer team, please read the criteria and apply.

The Volunteer experience

Amel is open to everyone. There are initiatives and opportunities accessible for both novices and experienced humanitarian workers. So there’s no need to be concerned about going over your head. The same is true of volunteering at Amel. We provide assignments and responsibilities for both new and experienced volunteers. Furthermore, your involvement in humanitarian and social causes has no bearing on your prospects of becoming a volunteer. So, regardless of your background, education, or experience, you are welcome to join the volunteer team, as long as you believe in dignity and equality for all.

Volunteering can boost your self-esteem, self-confidence, and overall life fulfillment. You acquire a natural sense of achievement when you do good for others and the community. Your volunteer work can also provide you with a feeling of pride and identity. Furthermore, volunteering allows you to explore and experience different regions of Lebanon, meet new people, and develop a better understanding for social issues.
