who are we

Launched in December 2015 under the aegis of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Volunteer Mauritius aims to create opportunities for youth to engage in volunteering activities at regional and national levels. Volunteer Mauritius (also known as the National Young Volunteer Scheme) has as objective to promote a volunteering culture and spirit among young people. Youth engagement and participation through volunteering has the power to foster an environment where the young Mauritians are able to bring in their energy, passion, creativity as well as innovative solutions to pressing issues relevant to them as well as for the society at large.


Our vision is people connected to and participating in their communities to build a better Mauritian society.


Our mission is to promote the value of volunteering, and increase the range and quality of volunteering in the Republic of Mauritius


We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.  ~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt


Volunteering will combat poverty, improve self-esteem and contribute towards “Nation Building”.
