As Austrian author Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach says: “If everyone would help others, everyone would be helped.” – an accurate description of what volunteer work does in our society. Many people need different kinds of special aid or assistance. You can become more socially engaged through regular volunteer work, a volunteer “social year” or as part of the Federal Volunteer Service, and experience appreciation for your everyday work. From patient transport to teaching or administration – the thanks you will receive for your work is more valuable than any salary. JobStairs offers many current open volunteer positions, and allows you to apply directly.
