The German Voluntary Social year (also known as Freiwilliges Soziales Jahr) is a period of time, from 6 to 18 months, which is spent doing volunteer work in the German social sector. The state-funded programme is available to those who have completed compulsory high school education and are under 27 years of age.
Participants will immerse themselves in the culture of their placement while gaining experience, all with the help of the institution.
Examples of possible assignments include working:
- In hospitals and nursing homes
- In ambulatory services and people with disabilities
- In youth welfare and kindergartens
- With children from difficult family backgrounds
The programme is designed to offer young adults the chance to find their vocational or academic orientation while contributing to the greater social good. It also provides its participants legal status comparable to that of those doing a German Ausbildung, or apprenticeship.
