Participation in Long Term Volunteering
We recommend long term volunteering projects in particular to all volunteers who already have experience in international volunteering. Since the long-term projects we offer are not taking place within regulated voluntary service, the application process is relatively short.

Long Term Volunteering

Apart from workcamps, IBG also offers some medium and long-term volunteering services, which are organized by our partner organisations. These are "unregulated" voluntary services, which means that the projects are not offered under state-regulated voluntary services (such as FSJ, European Voluntary Service, International Youth Volunteer Service, weltwärts, etc.). Internationally, these voluntary services are termed "MTV" or "LTV" which stands for "mid-term volunteering" or "long-term volunteering".

We recommend long-term volunteering projects in particular to all volunteers who already have experience in international volunteering. Since the long-term projects we offer are not taking place within regulated voluntary service, the application process is relatively short. An intensive individual preparation should be planned nevertheless.

The people I met during my volunteering service made the six months in Mexico a unique experience and an incredible time that brought me much more than just good language skills.

Info regarding the application

Since it is currently difficult to assess whether and how the spread of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 will affect the summer and autumn travel planning of volunteers, the following applies until further notice:

  • For all volunteers who apply with IBG to be sent to volunteering projects this summer and autumn, we can refund the full placement fee if you cancel before the start of the project.
  • Projects can be canceled at short notice, so please do not book your tickets until you have received confirmation that your camp is taking place. You can find more information here.

Long-term volunteering in Germany

Each year, we organize about 40 international workcamps in Germany. In addition, we sometimes offer mid-term and long-term volunteering projects. To apply for one, just contact our partner organisation in your country. If there is no workcamp organisation in your country, just get in touch with us and send us an email, so you can apply directly with us.
