  • One Year in the UEM Communion of Churches!

    Our Volunteer Programme for young Adults from 18 to 28 years

Our UEM communion of churches invites young adults to do a voluntary service in another country. Young people from the continents of Africa or Asia come to Germany ("South-North") or do their service in another country in Africa or Asia ("South-South"). Young Germans do their voluntary service in countries in Africa or Asia ("North-South").

We offer:

  • interesting, carefully selected places of assignment that are part of a communion of churches on 3 continents 

  • more than 40 years of experience in global voluntary service

  • an in-depth selection and support programme with seminars and specific contact persons in all 3 regions of the UEM

  • the assumption of costs for flights, insurance, accommodation and pocket money, together with partner organisations

  • Certification by the Agency for Quality in Volunteer Services (Quifd)
