Notice of Shutdown of Vision 2050 platform

Dear Vision 2050 Community, 


On 13 April 2023, we received written confirmation from the Grand Magistry that Vision 2050 does not have the support of the new government of the Order of Malta.


It is therefore with great sadness that we inform you of the forthcoming closure of the Vision 2050 platform.

We know that this news will come as a disappointment to you as it has to us.


The platform will officially close on 31 May 2023. Until then, it will still be possible to apply for opportunities that are currently advertised on the platform, but no new opportunities can now be uploaded. 


Just under a year ago we launched this platform, offering young people opportunities to dedicate themselves to the service of Our Lord’s the sick and the poor through the works of the Order of Malta. Since then, with the help of your collaboration and support

  • 956 volunteers from 52 countries have registered on the platform.
  • 42 entities within the Order from 34 countries have created a sub-page to share opportunities.
  • 91 volunteering, internship and job opportunities have been promoted.
  • Over 150 volunteers have been placed.

We owe particular thanks to our donors who specifically funded this initiative.


Thank you to everybody who has engaged with this project and helped to make it such a success. 

Your Vision 2050 team

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, receive regular updates and discover the Order’s youth activities worldwide!

Global friendships

You are moving from one country to another for some time and would like to stay involved in the Order of Malta family? Then check here to find your contact person for youth in that country and get in touch with them.


Sharing is caring, so let’s not reinvent the wheel! If you want to learn more about how to set-up a soup kitchen, or you’re looking for entertainment ideas for your next summer camp or just some inspiration then…
