This page aims for member organisations from DBYN to be able to poste their long-term volunteering opportunities for young people.
We are hoping that it will be helpful to you.
The Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB) and the Salesian Sisters (FMA) in Austria offer a ten-month voluntary service in the field of education for young adults from 18 to 30 years from Europe. Our association “Don Bosco Volunteers” is funded by the “European Solidarity Corps”.
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 four positions for volunteers. Two in Vienna (Don Bosco Haus, Don Bosco Flüchtlingswerk), one in Klagenfurt and one in Vöcklabruck. You will find more information at www.donbosco.at/volunteers.
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 2020 to June 2021. We can offer a volunteering opportunity for six persons funded by the Solidarity Corps. The deadline for applications is the 30th of June 2020: volunteers.donbosco.at/de/home/bewerbungsformular.html.
