Seeing a great interest in volunteering, we also provide counseling to those over 29 years of age. people with a desire and time to volunteer.


We see volunteering as a learning process in which volunteers are involved and the acceptingorganizations..

 Values that are important to us:

  • equivalent relationships
  • physical and psychological security
  • growth of young person's independence

Every volunteer has a mentor, with whom regular meetings take place. During them, the volunteer reflects on his / her perceptions, problems, and competencies to be developed. In this way, the volunteer names what he / she learned during the service, what skills he / she acquired, how his / her attitude changed. Mentors also help to look more constructively at opportunities in conflict situations.

Curators of host organizations also work closely with mentors to discuss a variety of situations, help the volunteer integrate, consult when difficulties arise, and work together to find constructive solutions and compromises from all difficult situations. 

These measures are justified because volunteers coordinated by A.C. Patria, even after completing their service earlier, usually make a decision after understanding valuable things about themselves and others. The cessation of volunteering in our organization is not spontaneous: in the event of difficulties, the most appropriate solution is considered together.

We solve the problem in stages, providing feedback, informing the volunteer how we see the situation and what the prospects are.
