  • How to become a volunteer in ACNS?

  • American Corner activities are based on volunteerism. Volunteers create programs and activities together with AC staff. Usually our volunteers are US citizens, but anyone with good ideas and willingness can participate as well. You can organize a conversation group, give a lecture, give a presentation or just help out with technical and administrative work.

    This can help you receive valuable experience, meet great people and invest in yourself.

    You can be a volunteer from 3 month to 3 years or, depending of the success of your program, even longer.

    Volunteers are VIP members of AC who have a special status and are recognized during the year for their efforts. Each volunteer can get a recommendation letter and be supported in job seeking. If you’re as excited about American Corner Novi Sad as we are, and want to help out, consider becoming a volunteer. Our volunteers are passionate, enthusiastic people who are committed to gathering and socializing.

    If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, send us some information about yourself.
