Have you ever had the experience of being very happy for helping someone?
We have all had this life experience of feeling and being vibrant when we genuinely support each other's process. When we open up and offer our time and our abilities to the world in an authentic, honest, and selfless way, springs up in us a kind of happiness that comes from our internal resources, triggered by cooperation, openness, support, and partnership.
It is a happiness that results from what we offer to the world.
Paz & Mente offers opportunities for you to exercise these qualities and abilities by maintaining a volunteer database made of interested and committed people who support the spread of Peace Studies, Conflict Transformation and Emotional Balance in Latin America. Your cooperation is fundamental in this process. Come with us!
What is to be a volunteer?
For us, volunteering is more than just donating hours of your time or putting your skills at the disposal of people, causes or organizations. Volunteering is an opportunity for collective learning. It’s an exercise of generosity and solidarity. It is an opportunity to cultivate virtue, compassion, and openness.
Volunteering is not just a word. It is love, dedication, and action.
Volunteers are the heart of an organization. They make a difference from the work, commitment and dedication they offer. They are moved by a powerful force: will and motivation.
What do you want to offer to the world?
If you wish to generously transform your qualities and abilities into actions, be part of our volunteer database.
