Weltwärts volunteers support the projects of host organisations for between six and 24 months with practical work and personal experiences that they acquired, for example, during volunteer work. Some also already have vocational training or have graduated from university. They bring a new point of view and some ideas to the project.
In working with children and young people, they can credibly teach the subjects of environmental protection and health care, whilst acting as a model for other young people thanks to their dedication. After their service, they can work in their homeland as ambassadors for the projects that they have learned about themselves, e.g., by providing information about them and helping with additional financial and personal support.
Accordingly, they also contribute to a closer networking of sending and partner organisations.
