Europäisches Solidaritätskorps/Volunteering in Austria


„Don Bosco Volunteers Austria“ offers volunteering opportunities (ten months, September to June) focused on education, social work, youth and pastoral care.

A volunteer contributes in the host institutions by supporting the educational programmes, leisure activities, community building, public relations or charity events.

Paired with a community that needs the skills and experience of the respective volunteer, the work done will be of vital importance. Volunteers will gain new skills and have experiences that will help them grow and develop as a person and in their work.

For the year 2022-23 there are five volunteering opportunities:

#1 Opportunity              Salesian Youth Movement

#2 Opportunity              Don Bosco Sozialwerk

#3 Opportunity              Don Bosco Schulen Vöcklabruck

#4 Opportunity              Pfarre St. Josef Klagenfurt

#5 Opportunity              Schülerheim Don Bosco Fulpmes

A volunteer should be motivated to work with kids and youngsters, creative, communicative, willing to learn, active and reliable.

If you need more information, write us an E-Mail.
For a voluntary service starting in September 2022, send your application till 30th of June 2022.
