Even after a year of the pandemic, it is still difficult to predict what 2021 will look like for IBG. For us as a workcamp organisation, the last year including travel restrictions and contact restrictions meant that our volunteers could hardly travel to projects abroad. Placements in projects abroad have decreased by over 75%.We were able to organise only 6 workcamps in Germany instead...

Get engaged with IBG

Get engaged in international voluntary work and discover the world! We work with partner organizations in more than 40 countries in Europe, Asia, North, Central and South America, each organizing work camps and longer voluntary services in their own country. In addition, we offer you several places in international trainings and seminars on topics such as youth work, migration, sustainability or inclusion. Every year, we send about 250 volunteers to international voluntary work projects abroad. Most of the projects offered are aimed at people between the ages of 16 and 30, but younger or older volunteers are also welcome in many projects.

Encouraging participation

Regardless of their origin, education, income or other factors, participation in international voluntary work should be open to everybody. Therefore, within the organisation as well as on an international level we are working to facilitate access and overcome obstacles. For this purpose, we rely on intensive and individual consultation and preparation in order to find the right project for everyone.

For additional support, we also have funds from our own solidarity fund to which 10% of all participation fees go. We use the fund to enable disadvantaged young people to take part in voluntary service. With IBG's solidarity fund, you can receive a grant and, for example, pay a reduced participation fee. In some cases, we may also be able to subsidize your travel expenses.

Just contact us and we will try to find an individual solution together.
