Stand up and

convince people!

Volunteer for civil search and rescue! As a volunteer with SOS Humanity, you can raise awareness about the humanitarian emergency in the Mediterranean at concerts, demonstrations or educational events and mobilise more people to support SOS Humanity. Or you can help shape SOS Humanity’s public relations work as part of the social media or podcast team. You can also support us as an individual with translation or layout work or use your own reach to draw attention to our work.

Volunteering takes many forms:
