Vision 2050

The Order of Malta's global youth volunteering platform

Supporting the Priories, Associations and Relief Services of the Order of Malta, Vision 2050 invites young people to enter the world of volunteering and become part of the Order of Malta's extended family.

Vision 2050 provides unique opportunities for young people to volunteer together, sharing powerful experiences in service of others. These life-changing encounters build lasting friendships whilst experiencing their faith in action.

Vision 2050 is a platform for young volunteers and members of the Order to share best practices, to collaborate in their activities and discussions beyond national borders and to get in touch with each other. 

Join us, and discover the Order’s youth activities worldwide!

No time for volunteering?

We know that not everyone has the time to volunteer. Many Order of Malta projects also need financial support. If you would like to contribute to these inspiring works in this way, please visit the Global Fund for Forgotten People.
