2. Voluntary Activities

In Croatia there is no Law on Youth Volunteering but there is an Act on Volunteering where there is the official definition reads: “as an investment of personal time, effort, knowledge and skills out of free will with which services and activities are executed for the well-being of another person or wider public, without existence of any conditions of providing a financial reward or seeking any other material benefit for volunteering accomplished“.

The main actor involved in making decisions in the field of youth volunteering is the Central State Office for Demography and Youth. This office coordinates National Committee for the Development of Volunteerism, an advisory body of the Government of the Republic of Croatia that implements measures and activities aimed to promoting volunteering and work on its development.
