Become a volunteer!

At Kiron you can make a difference! It is your time, expertise and passion that make a real impact.

Without volunteers like you, we would not be able to strive for our goals and vision. That’s why volunteers are so vital to us. Our volunteers are part of the Kiron team.

We believe in teamwork and cohesion across all hierarchical levels, so volunteers can get involved in all areas of the organization. At Kiron, there is no us and them – we’re all Kironistas!

We recognize and cherish the valuable contribution each volunteer makes to the organization. At Kiron, we not only give volunteers a chance to gain valuable work experience and extensive insight into our organization, but also support their ambitions and foster their unique skills and expertise. We nurture and unleash the capacities that exist within our communities to create a world in which everyone has the same chance to access and succeed in higher education.

A pool of more than 400 volunteers already commit their time and talent to Kiron and to our mission to help refugees gain access to higher education and successful learning through digital solutions.

It’s your turn now – ready to join our mission?
