Immerse Yourself in the German Culture For Free by Volunteering in Germany or Austria

Name and Title:

Birgit A. Jensen, PhD, Associate Professor of German

Organization:

East Carolina University

Area of the World:

United States

Language:

Mostly English, some German

Target Audience(s):

Instructors of German and students interested in an immersion year in Germany at extremely low cost (i.e., a plane ticket)

Short Session Description:

Learn how to immerse yourself in the German culture by joining the federal volunteer programs in Germany or Austria

Full Session Description:

Many educational, social, cultural, health, ecological, and political organizations in Germany relied on young men who did not want to serve in the military to volunteer for them instead. However, when Germany ended its draft program in 2011, the number of volunteers available dropped by more than 50.000 per year. As a result, foreigners with at least low-intermediate proficiency German-speaking skills are invited to help out in organizations, locations, and fields that will provide them with work experience, additional German language training, international networking opportunities, and educational seminars.

Explore this option to live and work in Germany (or Austria, for ecological volunteering) for 6-18 months with an allowance, room and board, health insurance, and bi-monthly seminars. Details on how to secure a position and best practices from two case studies will be shared in this session.
