ABOUT US

We at The Volunteer Circle believe it is time to take CHARGE.
By creating a platform for skill-sharing across all areas of Lebanon, we match enthusiastic volunteers, community services, experience seekers, and multi-talented individuals with the cause that needs them the most.

Our Vision

Our circle is a vision about altering the way we use our time and effort on the personal level, and improving capacity of organizations on the national level.

An initiative for the people by the people, we create a community that is readily accessible to support the hard work of NGOs, start-ups, local businesses, and artists.

Our Mission

We connect people and fill the gap that exists in light of the many needs of local initiatives versus the many talents in our region.
The Volunteer Circle is a platform linking the general public to volunteer opportunities, orienting those who want to volunteer but don’t know where to begin, and giving organizations/start-ups the chance to utilize non-paid resources.
We aim to support the hard work of Lebanon’s active and diverse third sector, start-up arena, and initiatives in the fields of music, theatre, and arts.
The impact is mutual; volunteering offers help to people in need, vulnerable communities, and meaningful causes, and support to growing initiatives.
The volunteer benefits too: helping out within a domain of interest can be mentally stimulating, and provide a goal and sense of fulfillment. It can also help individuals gain experience in the field of choice, and impact social and cultural change.
Our aim is to connect people and fill the gap that exists in light of the many needs vs. the many talents in our region.
