The volunteers help in education (youth centres, educational programmes, house for migrants). Accommodation, lodging, language course and a ticket for public transport are free for the volunteers. Additionally, they receive 150 euros pocket money per month. There is a formative programme from the European Union (two three-day courses) and Salesian formation (pilgrimage to Turin, course of Salesian pedagogy and a weekend for reflection).
Currently we have seven positions for volunteers in five different places: two in Vienna (Salesianum, Don Bosco Sozialwerk), one in Klagenfurt, one in Vöcklabruck and one in Salzburg. You will find more information at www.donbosco.at/volunteers.
General information: Don Bosco Volunteers in Austria coordinates volunteering opportunities in five different places and supports the volunteer to develop their own skills and knowledge. Changes in the timetable are possible according to the needs and wishes of the volunteer.
Training during the voluntary service: The participants join the obligatory trainings (On Arrival, Midterm) organised by the Austrian National Agency. Additionally, Don Bosco Volunteers organise for the volunteers of the organisation three trainings: 4-day trip to Turin for our national and international volunteers, one-day study programme on educational issues and a weekend for reflexion.
We kindly ask you to inform the youngsters of your institution and province about this possibility. We are happy to welcome young adults who already have experience in Salesian education and animation.
The next period for volunteering is from September 2021 to June 2022. We can offer a volunteering opportunity for six persons funded by the Solidarity Corps. The deadline for applications (with CV and motivational letter) is the 15th July 2021: volunteers.donbosco.at/de/home/bewerbungsformular.html
