Become a Volunteer

If you’re ready to help level the playing field for children facing adversity and be involved with a leader of social entrepreneurism in Poland, you’ve come to the right place! 

The White Star Foundation Group makes it easy to help because of the five different foundations in the group. Each of the foundations is unique and each offers engaging and mission-critical ways for volunteers to get involved.

The great thing about volunteering within the White Star Foundation Group is that you can volunteer a lot or volunteer a little. Either way, we have important work for you to do that will make a difference in a child’s life… and probably yours as well.

Family for Family

If you have only occasional hours or maybe a short-term opening to volunteer, Family for Family could be a perfect fit. Volunteers help manage the matches between children from Receiving and Sharing Families. Volunteers can also go on interviews, pick up clothing donations or help represent Family for Family at events. All of the activities can take place according to your schedule. Family for Family is all about flexibility.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Poland

If you prefer to volunteer on an on-going basis with just one child, then mentoring with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Poland might be the best choice for you. Mentors meet with a child three or four times a month for an hour or two. Research has shown that these few meetings a month change a child’s life for the better.

Katalyst Engineering

Do you like working with groups of children, especially in elementary school? With Katalyst Engineering you might be asked to help with classroom observations or testing out new curricula. Maybe you’re interested in 3D printer modeling and designing kids engineering sets – Katalyst Engineering volunteers get lots of opportunities to work with innovative 3D printer technology.

Katalyst Education

If you’re interested in volunteering in a foundation that is developing cutting edge digital education tools, Katalyst Education could be just the place for you to put your energies. We are always looking for volunteers to help with video editing, computer programming and coding.

White Star Foundation

Or maybe you prefer to help behind the scenes by volunteering in our office on Grzybowska Street. In that case, White Star Foundation would be the one for you. White Star Foundation volunteers help with marketing and public relations, social media sites, administrative work, as well as research. Because we operate in both Polish and English, we always have lots of opportunities for native English speakers.

No matter what your interests are or how much time you have… or don’t have. White Star Foundation makes sure that your volunteer hours make a difference in a child’s life.
