Zagreb - Post Report Question and Answers

What volunteer opportunities are available locally?

There are a couple dog shelters that would likely take volunteers, and the CLO and/or local embassy staff likely has information about more/other volunteer opportunities. - Jan 2023

The International Women's Club is a great way to socialize and volunteer (it is a non-profit). The Community Liaison Office (CLO) at the embassy also has opportunities for volunteers. Other places include the Red Cross (who work with refugees), the Center for Autism, and local churches. - Jul 2018

Limited opportunities due to the need to know Croatian. However, I'd highly encourage you to volunteer via the Information Resource Center at the embassy---they are often looking for Americans to give talks in schools, libraries and other public places. - Apr 2016

Probably a lot if you speak the language. - Jun 2014

There is always a CLO trip to help out at the orphanages. Also a lot of people like to help out at dog shelters. - Feb 2014
