Volunteerism of Uzhhorod National University is an association of students, graduate students, teachers, staff and graduates of Uzhhorod National University. It was created at the Resource Center for Sustainable Development.

The founding meeting of the Volunteer took place on the International Volunteer Day - December 5, 2018. According to the preliminary registration, 86 volunteers volunteered to join the Volunteer Work. As of the end of the 2018-2019 school year, our team already has more than 100 volunteers.


The main goals of the Association:

VOLUNTEERING at Uzhhorod National University is a real human contribution to solving a social problem and creating a better world. That is why we unite in a team of many thousands to change our lives in the university, community, region, country and the world for the better. These are ambitious plans that we implement in small steps in various spheres of life - helping, developing and learning. It is a voluntary choice that reflects personal views and positions; it is active participation in the life of society, which is expressed, as a rule, in social activities.


Uzhhorod Volunteers are people who do something of their own free will, with consent, not under duress. These are voluntary initiatives of students, teachers, graduates and staff, which extend to almost any field of human activity.

For students, participation in volunteering has its advantages, namely:

 - pre-professional training, professional self-determination and formation;

 - mastering the knowledge and practical skills of social work with children and youth;

 - experience of individual and group work with peers and adults;

 - new friends, interesting leisure, meaningful employment, the opportunity to help others;

 - development of leadership qualities, creative abilities, self-expression and becoming a young person as a person, as an active member of society;

 - the opportunity to participate in decision-making processes that affect young people.

The main activities of volunteers:


  1. Social rehabilitation work, prevention and overcoming of negative phenomena in the youth environment.


  2. Guardianship of socially vulnerable groups.


  3. Social development of youth and its integration into society.


Basic principles of volunteers:


  • the right to association for all men, women, children, regardless of their race, religion, physical characteristics, social and financial status;

  • respect for the dignity and culture of all people;

  • mutual assistance, free services in person or organized in the spirit of partnership and brotherhood;

  • recognition of the equal importance of personal and collective needs, promoting the collective provision of these needs;

  • transformation of volunteering into an element of personal prosperity, acquisition of new knowledge and skills, improvement of abilities, mobilization for this initiative and creativity of people, giving everyone the opportunity to be a creator, not a user;

  • stimulating a sense of responsibility;

  • encouraging family, collective and international solidarity.
