Since it’s inception, Voices of Future Generations (VoFG) Arabia has helped many children find their voices and express their vision as they’ve explored what a greener, more accessible world could look like. But as we continue to grow and expand, we’ve realised that a mission like this needs more than a team to make it happen. It needs a whole village.

Volunteer Testimonials

This is my third year as a sifter for the VOFG competition. The whole experience has been fantastic, with great support from the VOFG team. They provided training to get me started and were always available via email or phone call while I was sifting.

I'm constantly amazed by the quality of some of the stories entered and how passionate some of today's young people are about the future of the planet.

- Denise Moore

I personally had a great time volunteering with VOFG. The tasks the leading team gave me were clear and easy to follow during the event. The team was supportive and always happy to help. They had a great deal of knowledge and a kind approach.

From greeting families, students, friends, and all visitors to the performances, right up to ending the event with wide, priceless smiles and fascinated faces, it was a moment filled with joy. The joy of discovering the great contribution and act of service, and also the joy of indulging in the peak of the magnificent minds of the younger generation.
