In Sofia we aim to connect to a local community in numerous ways: from picnics & workshops to educational programs and storytelling events. Our activities are carried out in English and explore the topics of leadership, entrepreneurial mindset, mental well-being and personal growth.

L.E.A.D. with Synergy Bulgaria was created for young people who have aspirations, dreams and ideas, and are ready to grow together with us both personally & professionally.

As a volunteer you’ll have a chance to develop your talents, get mentored by the team and contribute to the projects & daily tasks of our organization.

L.E.A.D. stands for:

  • Engage in Synergy activities, both online and offline, Sofia-based and not only.
  • Act bravely! We welcome proactivity and stepping up. Mistakes happen, and we see them as a part of great learning.
  • Develop yourself. If you’re 100% in, it will happen anyway (we guarantee).

In 2024 you’re the creator of your own experience!

What about life in Sofia & Bulgaria? 

The population of Sofia is 1,7 million people and it is home to 16 universities which means you’ll have a chance to meet local youth and get connected to other ESC volunteers. Sofia has got an airport which means a weekend in Athens, Istanbul or even Tel-Aviv will be an easy thing to plan.

By the way, Bulgaria is a cheap country, so being a volunteer here is comfy and nice. And for party animals – yes, there are plenty of clubs and bars to go for a drink and meet new people.


The project is open to young people aged 18-27 from EU countries and Ukraine interested in the project activities and supporting the mission of Synergy Bulgaria.

The main criterion for the selection is motivation to participate and interest in our activities. Previous experience in Erasmus+ projects, event management & digital marketing is a bonus.

The duration of the project is 12 months from February 2024. You should be ready to commit for the whole period. 

We’re still open for 2 more candidates to join the team!


If you feel like joining our Synergy Bulgaria team for the next 12 months, fill in the application form, and we’ll contact you for a
Zoom interview very soon. The selection process is ongoing, meaning there is no deadline to submit your application.

Be ready to jump in the airplane and join us in February 2024.
