Work experience is essential for getting a job. The AFS Volunteer Programme is aimed at young adults who want to gain real-life experience and intercultural knowledge.

This 12-month programme provides you with an opportunity for creating positive social change through volunteering, while improving your personal, educational, and professional skills. Non-formal and formal learning opportunities during the programme enable you to acquire essential competencies to become an Active Global Citizen, thereby improving your employment prospects and facilitating your transition into the labor market.

The various projects within the programme are looking for young, highly motivated team members to play an active part in their organisation and to contribute to the daily work routine of the organisation.

Project Description: Driving and Security Service

Within the Young Workers Volunteer Program, AFS Germany offers the possibility to work in a non-profit, volunteer-based project, which is active in the area of driving service for the elderly and traffic safety.  The project is located near the city of Augsburg in Bavaria, Southern Germany.  You will be involved in various tasks and work alongside other enthusiastic volunteers.

The project has been active in the field of traffic safety for many years, and has lead road closures around the Augsburg Open Air Theatre and at various sporting events with the local football club or other events.  The working language is German and it is a 12 month programme.

The team at AFS Germany are looking forward to discussing the programmes with you and can be called on +49 40 399 222 856 between 9am and 3pm.
