Voluntary
social year

Please understand that we can not offer a voluntary social year in the Operndorf Afrika.

Reasons: The voluntary social year, or respectively the Youth Volunteer Service Abroad, has pursuant to legislative requirements, to be accompanied pedagogically, with the goal of strengthening social, cultural and intercultural skills.

The pedagogical accompaniment has to be organised in such a way, so that preparatory events of at least four weeks duration and follow-up events of at least one week duration take place in the Federal Republic of Germany.

However, since we are a very small organisation with less than 5 employees in Germany, we can not afford the administrative, spatial and pedagogical expenses.

Make use of your commitment and apply for a project that can meet these basic requirements and offers the voluntary service abroad. A helpful portal is “weltwärts” [Out into the world] – the voluntary service of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development weltwärts
