In a workcamp, young people from all over the world come together to volunteer for a non-profit project for 2 to 3 weeks. Various projects in the fields of nature and environmental protection, construction and renovation, archeology and in the social or artistic area offer a variety of possibilities.


Long Term Volunteering

We also send volunteers to medium- and long-term voluntary services. These are projects that are not offered as "regular" voluntary services (such as Freiwilliges Soziales Jahr, European Voluntary Service, Internationaler Jugendfreiwilligendienst or weltwärts).



You are looking for further experience in international volunteering? We have places in international trainings, seminars and further education in Germany and abroad every year. In most cases English is the working language and often travel expenses are funded under the ERASMUS + funding program.
