What is weltwärts South-North?
The weltwärts South-North development volunteer service gives you the opportunity to get involved in civic engagement in Germany by spending six to 18 months volunteering in the areas of education, healthcare, environmentalism, culture or human rights. The focus is on learning from each other and developing global awareness.
Be it a housing project for people with disabilities, an association that promotes community-supported agriculture or a nursery school - there are many different ways to play an active role in society and learn with weltwärts. Irrespective of the project you choose to support, the weltwärts volunteer service is all about working together for the community, creating change and learning from and with one another in the process.
No matter whether you’ve just finished vocational training or secondary school or whether you’re already in higher education or have already completed an internship or a different volunteering programme: with weltwärts you’ll gain experience in an international context as well as expanding your German language skills and getting a hands-on taste of non-profit work and everyday life in Germany.
