The numerous volunteering agencies in Thuringia are contact points for all questions, suggestions and projects relating to volunteering in their respective region. Volunteering agencies act as advisors for non-profit institutions, associations and initiatives from all areas of social and cultural life with regard to issues of volunteer management. This includes mediating between citizens who want to get involved and those institutions that work with volunteers. Additionally, volunteering agencies organise training courses and assist interested parties with project ideas relating to active citizenship.
