Volunteer with us in Lebanon
You want to help Syrian refugees in need? You have an interest in interfaith encounters? You have experience with teaching kids sports, arts, languages or any other activity? Come and join us in Lebanon as international volunteer! Throughout the year, we are seeking dedicated men and women who are motivated to gain a unique experience helping refugees in the field.
Living and working at our Peace Centre in the North of Lebanon, 12 km from the Syrian border, volunteers are directly involved in implementing an innovative approach to assisting the Syrian refugee crisis in Lebanon. As part of our ethos to bring people from different backgrounds together, our international volunteers combine forces with local teachers in organising and implementing educational and recreational activities for children and adolescents of Syrian refugee and Lebanese host communities.
Despite the difficult conditions in Lebanon, we have stood our ground since 2013 and we have welcomed international volunteers every year since then, also in times of Covid-19 and civil unrest. The youth we serve is in need, today more than ever. We apply special precautions not to spread the coronavirus and keep our volunteers safe and secure, but we continue operations. We are recruiting international volunteers for the following categories

Volunteer with us from home
We ask for your understanding that we have to stick to a couple of criteria for the selection of our volunteers at the R&R Peace Centre in Lebanon. Most notably, we have to insist on the minimum age and on some experience in the work we do. However, even if you do not fulfil the criteria to be selected as a volunteer at the R&R Peace Centre, you can support our mission from home by becoming an Associate Member of R&R International.
We do not have any overhead staff. All those supporting our work abroad are volunteer members. Also your help is needed. Here some ideas of what you can do:
