Work experience is essential for getting a job. The Young Workers Volunteer Programme is aimed at young adults who want to clarify career goals and gain intercultural knowledge.

This 12-months program provides you with an easily accessible opportunity for effecting positive societal change through volunteering, while improving your skills and competences for personal, educational, and professional development. Non-formal and formal learning opportunities during the program will enable you to acquire essential competences for personal growth in order to become an Active Global Citizen, thereby improving your employment prospects and facilitating your transition into the labor market.

The various projects in this programme are looking for young, highly motivated team members to play an active part in their organisation and to contribute to the daily work routine of the organisation. The following project is one of the projects participating in the programme.

Project Description: Art and Culture Society

Within the Young Workers Volunteer Programme, AFS Germany offers the possibility to live and breath art. The project is an unusual art and artists’ museum situated in a beautiful 700-year-old historic inn. The project was founded in 2008 and promotes art, culture and preservation of historical monuments, in particular their own building as a total work of art, the dialogue of cultures, international art projects, socio-cultural activities and the care of historical buildings. The project pursues exclusively and directly charitable purposes. With a long-term creative utilisation concept, it is committed to the careful restoration of the historic building. The local team is constantly working on the preservation of the musuem building. Numerous art projects in public space in Saxony and Berlin are related to the project. As a Young Worker you will be a full member of the art team.
