Montenegro isn't high up on international volunteering agencies' agendas, but there are ways you can get involved in local projects.
Responsible Travel (www.responsibletravel.com) runs voluntourism projects in Montenegro; in 2016 they offered an expedition for volunteers to take part in a Balkan lynx-monitoring program in Prokletije National Park.
Green Home (www.greenhome.co.me) is a Podgorica-based NGO dedicated to sustainable development, environmental protection and biodiversity conservation; contact it for volunteering opportunities in any of the national parks.
Montenegro doesn’t issue working visas, and working here is a complicated business that involves a forest’s worth of paperwork and bucketloads of patience. A work permit, permission for permanent or temporary residence and a work contract are all required. The Employment Bureau of Montenegro (www.zzzcg.me, in Montenegrin) ostensibly can assist with the process. The www.gov.uk/guidance/living-in-montenegro website has more information.
If you’d like to spend more time in Montenegro than a vacation allows, experiencing what it’s like to live and make a difference to the local community, it’s all possible by Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) with i-to-i TEFL. No previous teaching experience or local language knowledge is necessary.
