Why do voluntary service in Germany?

Making a commitment and gaining experience

Doing voluntary service will give you an opportunity to develop your intercultural, linguistic and social skills together with other volunteers from various countries. By meeting people from other cultures with different social backgrounds, you will be able to gather a myriad of impressions and to have new and interesting experiences. This will increase your independence and your individual responsibility for others. During this time, you will receive the support of our educational staff.

You can use the opportunity of voluntary service in Germany to establish an international network for yourself which will transcend the borders of Europe.

Voluntary service provides:
• an encounter with people and the experience of being in a community, as well as team work,
• professional orientation and the chance to learn about professions in social, educational and cultural areas as well as about caring professions,
• a perspective for increasing your chances of obtaining an apprenticeship training position or a place at a university.
