Open Voluntary Service Opportunities in Germany

We are offering open Voluntary Service Opportunities within different activity fields in the Ruhr Region in Western Germany for young people with refugee background.

What is voluntary service about?

The voluntary service is an opportunity to volunteer in different fields of work. What is volunteering? Volunteering is offering yourself, your time and your skills to a cause and people. In return, you gain experience and new skills. It also allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. And volunteering is a two-way street: It can benefit you as much as the cause or people you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills. And for this particular experience, in addition, you will have the ability to legally move to Germany while doing something good for society. 


Start of the voluntary service: March 2023


6-12 months
