The mission of the Cluj-Napoca Volunteer Centre or Centrul de Voluntariat Cluj-Napoca (CNVC) is to develop volunteerism as a means of involving citizens in solving out the problems of the Cluj-Napoca community.
Our vision is that of a solidary Cluj, in which all citizens get involved in solving the problems of the community, by offering their time, knowledge, skills, energy, talents and experience for a healthier, more beautiful community. We dream about a community in which getting involved in a volunteering activity represents an accepted and shared value, for all community members.
The Cluj-Napoca Volunteer Centre promotes the active involvement of each person in the community’s life, believes in the community’s capacity for self-development, through the involvement of its own members, believes in the self-determination potential of each person, advocates respecting the rights of each person, without any discrimination.
The Cluj-Napoca Volunteer Centre (CNVC) was legally founded, as an independent organization, in December 2004. Before this date, CNVC was functioning as a department within the ProVobis National Volunteer Centre. Through its official formation, CNVC continues and enhances, extends and innovates the activity of the ProVobis Local Programs Department. Therefore, the history of our organization is longer than the time passed from its legal inception, being based on the experience that the employees and volunteers of CNVC hold in the field of volunteerism.
