Volunteering has a long tradition in Thuringia and can be understood as a central component of our liberal democratic order. More than 700.000 Thuringians get involved voluntarily in their spare time.
Volunteering is just as multi-faceted as life itself. Whether it may be sports, a youth or a senior citizens club, the volunteer fire brigade, a congregation, a choir or initiatives which contribute to the environmental protection or to animal welfare – charitable voluntary work carried out by kindred spirits proves equally essential and irreplaceable again and again.
Here you can find many different organisations and initiatives which are already active in your region and have successful projects. You are welcome to get in contact with the people involved and support existing structures and projects.
