Volunteer Info:

Due to shifting circumstances on the island and our decision to focus our efforts on local communities, we no longer operate our volunteer program.

We are so thankful to the many men and women from all over the world who have been a part of Starfish over the past several years. Starfish have many arms, and we believe strongly that current and past members of our team will continue to work on behalf of people in need—with Starfish spirit—all over the world as we continue to do locally on Lesvos. From the beginning, Starfish has always consisted of people who care enough about others to step in and lend a hand. We have great faith in the ripple effect of so much collective good will and believe that our volunteers and supporters can and will continue to do beautiful, heartfelt things for others either here on Lesvos, or wherever they may be. We know that the spirit of Starfish—the willingness to help even just one person—lives on in all of you!

Please note that our email address for volunteering inquiries has been deactivated. A good place to start if you wish to volunteer in Lesvos is the Facebook Page Information Point for Lesvos Volunteers. Similar groups exist to provide information about volunteering on the Greek mainland and in Turkey.
