Internship & Volunteering
Volunteer with Skoun
Volunteers are critical to the success of Skoun and are essential to our day-to-day operations and activities.
At Skoun, volunteers are considered partners in implementing the activities of our Outreach team, who works on different programs, all related to awareness, support and harm reduction. We take part in university events and talks as well as awareness sessions with our Drug Policy team, to inform young people about their legal rights in case of arrest, specifically in case of arrest for drug use.
In our Safer NightLife program, we target pubs, clubs and festivals to promote a culture of harm reduction and safe partying. All of our activities are opportunities to open a discussion or answer questions about substance use, sexual health and legal advice.
You can be part of our team of Volunteers by sending your details and CV to our Outreach program manager Nour El Khazen at email@example.com
