An office with all honors - added value for you and society through volunteer work

Would you like to get involved socially and culturally, gain your first professional experience and realize yourself?

Volunteering enables you to acquire practical skills and abilities, is a lot of fun and is welcomed by future employers.

Find an organization that deals with specific social issues and is right for you.

You bring new knowledge to this organization and thus create social added value.

At the same time, you get to know new people and Berlin.

Here are our recommendations for external offers on this topic:

  • vostel
    The digital engagement platform with heart.
    Many of the digital and analogue engagement options on the platform require little or no knowledge of German. There are also short-term/one-off assignments (e.g. Providing neighborhood meals for homeless people) as well as long-term/regular projects (e.g. Helping/organizing events for educational justice), depending on your individual time budget. 

  • citizen-active Berlin
    As part of the Berlin state portal “”, “bürgeraktiv” supports the efforts of the Berlin Senate to promote engagement and democracy in Berlin.

  • Volunteer agencies in the Berlin districts
    The Berlin volunteer agencies bring together people who want to volunteer with those who need support. This makes them an important partner for local people - and for over 1600 organizations in the city with which they work. There is a volunteer agency in every district.
