Volunteers

Application for a voluntary service

IMPORTANT: Due to organizational issues we currently cannot accept volunteers from Nepal and Rwanda. Our partners and the Zugvögel are undergoing structural changes, but hope to welcome new volunteers for the 2018-19 cycle. The cooperation with Ecuador and Mexico continues as usual.

If you are interested in a voluntary service in Germany with the Zugvögel, you have to live in Ecuador, Rwanda, Mexico or Nepal. In these four countries we have partner structures who we are cooperating with.
Our partner structures are responsible for the selection and preparation of the volunteers. All partner structures search for volunteers and ask for (country specific) application documents. On the basis of these application documents a preselection will be made of possible future volunteers. This preselection to people is now invited to a selection seminar, which usually takes 3 days. This weekend will allow the partner structures and the volunteers to get to know each other, and a first exchange will take place. The volunteers, who will be given the opportunity to come to Germany will be selected here.
Each partner structure determines the selection criteria itself. However, volunteers must be over 18 years. We as Zugvögel are deliberately withdrawing from the selection of the volunteers because we only have a „german“ look at the applications and are not there to meet the people personally.
In some countries there are several preparatory seminars, language courses and close supervision with the help of the Zugvögel to manage the administrative procedures after the selection of volunteers has taken place. In one country, there is a two-month internship in the partner structure instead of the preparatory seminar, in order to get to know the work with volunteer services. However, support with the visa applications process etc. is offered everywhere.
For detailed information, please look at the web pages of the partner structures or contact the following addresses:
