2. Voluntary Activities

Last update: 4 May 2022

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.
