Green Crescent “Candidly” Towards 100th Year…
Dear Fellows of Green Crescent,
Our society, in thes..
Volunteering is defined as the support provided by an individual to a social initiative or activities of a non-governmental organization (NGO), to serve just willingly and believingly with no thought of financial or other gains in order to improve the quality of life of individuals other than his/her family or immediate environment or more generally, to achieve a goal that is considered beneficial for the community.
Individuals who are knowledgeable, experienced, energetic, tolerant, sharer, skilled in human relations, professional approacher, and interested in undertaking responsibility, as well as individuals who want to do something for the community even if they do not have such qualifications, can be a volunteer. The first and indispensable attribute that a volunteer should have is that s/he sincerely “volunteers”.
Volunteering contributes to an individual in terms of feeling pleasure, enriching spiritually, improving self-confidence, increasing teamwork skills, enhancing social position, and finding a new environment, friendships, and new interests.
We want to carry out our activities with the support of our volunteers. It is aimed that a generation free from addictions is raised by transferring the knowledge and experience gained to all segments of the society, especially the young people, with the support of role model people, who have comprehensive knowledge about the mission and vision of the Green Crescent, who can share their time, knowledge and experience, and who have a sense of social responsibility.
The activities that we carry out together with our volunteers raise the awareness of civil society and ensure that people taking part in the works that are beneficial to the society while they spend quality time and participating in the processes.
Such activities also increase the level of our volunteers’ awareness and ensure their personal development in many areas, especially struggle with addictive substances.
Volunteer works in training courses are carried out through “Green Crescent Clubs”.
