Medical volunteers can be everyone, regardless of age, education level and social status.
According to the press service of the Governor of the region, the district employs more than 5 thousand volunteers and about 170 volunteer associations. In particular, members existing in the region of the movement “Volunteers of the Arctic”, created in 2012, took part in environmental events on the Bely island in the Kara sea until 2016, and in 2017 they began to work on the island, Vilkitsky, which also applies to the district.
Earlier in July, the region was included in the list of the pilot subjects to implement the Standard for volunteerism in the regions developed by the Agency for strategic initiatives, which involves the development of interaction between regional public authorities with socially oriented non-profit and volunteer organizations, the appointment of the person responsible for the development of volunteering in the region and the establishment of a Council on volunteering.
