Wärmestube and FRIDA - Day Centre for homeless people and special area for homeless women - offers 1 placement for European volunteers. As we want to learn from young people, the volunteers will be part of the team. The volunteers with their ideas, abilities and creativity will support the social workers in their daily activities by preparing and giving food to our clients, helping cleaning up at the end of the day, as well as helping our clients with laundry and care of health. Furthermore, our clients will benefit from talking, playing, organizing additional offers like free time activities and by helping them with their appointments.
The volunteer will get an insight into our social system, into our organization, into poverty and what it means and how policy in Austria handle it. Cultural exchange will bring benefits for everyone - the clients, the volunteers and the hosting department. As there are also a lot of Austrian volunteers and staff members, the volunteer can easily get in touch with Austrian youths, customs, mentality and language. Thus, intercultural learning and communication shall be the aim for both, the volunteer and the host organization!
Volunteers in our organization get support from the local contact person, are covered by insurance, take part at team meetings, are invited to events and get free further education. It is usual to offer a good appreciation and celebration culture.
