The idea of volunteer work in Mijas has grown over recent years as many local non-profit organisations welcome new people into their groups.
The platform, offered by the town hall to the organisations, helps to increase community spirit by allowing residents to use their skills and experience through the volunteer program.
Volunteer work is good for the body and soul and can help to view a part of culture from the inside. Along with personal growth and a sense of accomplishment, you can learn new things and build sense of friendship and belonging.
The ability to participate and the willingness to get involved is the motivation of many people in the Mijas volunteer work program. The following clubs are currently part of the association and can all do with a helping hand.
