Workcamps

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).
