Eurowerkstatt has built up a big network of hosting projects in Jena.

Currently, all our volunteering positions are taken until the end of August 2021. We will start with the new application process probably in February 2021, so come back to this page from time to time to find out everything about how and when to apply 🙂

We coordinate the application process, the prearrangements and the mentoring of the volunteers. Our hosting projects are mainly active in the field of child and youth welfare or international youth work. The volunteers are involved in the daily work in kindergartens, youth centers or a sports club and get the chance to plan and organise their own projects.

This gives you the opportunity to bring your culture closer not only to local children and young people but also to your new colleagues.
