An internship of at least two week’s duration is the most important preparation for your voluntary service in Germany.
During this internship, you can try out working a social field before starting your service. Besides this, it makes your start in Germany a bit easier.
The internship doesn't neccessairly have to be in the same area, in which you will complete your service. Previous knowledge is not always absolutely neccessary. But care insitutions are always happy to have volunteers.
The internship does not have to take place in one of our partner insitutions nor at an anthroposophical insitution. A certification of completion from the preparatory internship must be handed in with your application.
