General Info

Helping with the maintenance of hiking paths near Dresden...preserving a natural stream and its surrounding area close to Stutgart...support archaeological experts and students in their research into a burial ground dating back to the Bronze Age...help over 100 children on a summer camp in Leipzig build their own mini town with huts and wooden houses...these are just some of the volunteer opportunities available through Concordia in Germany

What is Concordia? Concordia's aim is to encourage international youth exchange as a means of promoting personal development, greater cultural awareness and international understanding.

What are International Volunteer Projects? International Volunteer Projects bring together individuals from around the world to participate in two to four week projects. Volunteers work as part of an international team to support community-based initiatives that would not be possible without their help.

What types of project are there? Over 1500 projects take place every year so there is a wide range of options to choose from. Generally projects fall into the following categories: environmental; construction; renovation; archaeology; agriculture; working with children or youth; social work; working with people with special needs; arts or culture; festival work; and teaching.

Why do an international volunteer project? To experience different cultures, ideas and beliefs and also share your own...to work alongside local people in local communities, thus gaining a real insight into their country, cultures and traditions...to learn new skills and broaden your horizons...to meet new people and explore new places...to be part of a global movement working towards equality and peace between all people...to make a difference even when you only have a short amount of time to spare.

The main short term programme for the summer, with projects in over 60 countries world wide, is available on our website every year at the end on March. Opportunities are available in winter and spring as well. If you want more information don't hesitate to contact the office. "It was a tiring but very enjoyable two weeks, and I made some good friends from both the volunteers and the locals. Then was always something to keep us busy and it was a very enjoyable and fulfilling experience" (Richard Bennet, environmental project in Germany)

"The experience is one that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I had great fun doing something worthwhile and making some amazing friends at the same time" (Thomas Bennett, renovation project in Germany)
