Apply for a voluntary service

Liebe*r Bewerber*in,

wir können derzeit nur Bewerbungen aus der Europäischen Union annehmen.

Aufgrund der aktuellen internationalen Reisebeschränkungen können wir momentan leider keine Bewerbungen von Freiwilligen außerhalb der EU annehmen. Sobald die Reisebeschränkungen aufgehoben werden, ist eine Bewerbung wieder möglich.


Dear Applicant,

Currently we can accept applications from the European Union only.

Due to current international travel restrictions, we are unfortunately unable to accept applications from volunteers outside the EU at this time. As soon as the travel restrictions are lifted, applications will be possible again.


Chère candidate, cher candidat,

Nous ne pouvons actuellement accepter que les demandes émanant de l'Union européenne.

En raison des restrictions de voyages internationaux, nous ne pouvons malheureusement pas accepter pour l'instant les candidatures de volontaires en dehors de l'UE. Dès que les restrictions de voyage seront levées, il sera à nouveau possible de présenter une demande.


Estimado solicitante,

actualmente sólo podemos aceptar solicitudes de la Unión Europea.

Debido a las actuales restricciones a los viajes internacionales, lamentablemente no podemos aceptar en este momento solicitudes de voluntarios de fuera de la UE. Tan pronto como se levantan las restricciones de viaje, las solicitudes serán posibles de nuevo.
