Volunteering and community life are of central importance in the German-speaking community. Associations and volunteers are active in many areas in the German-speaking community: from youth work to adult education, culture, social and sports, education, development cooperation and the accompaniment of migrants.
In the German-speaking community, every third person works as a volunteer or is involved in community life. This means that the political framework for volunteering has to be improved constantly. This is usually done in direct consultation with those volunteers.
