Then let yourself be inspired: We show you 5 selected non-profit projects that are looking forward to your support in spring 2022. You can find many more volunteering opportunities in Stuttgart at vostel.de.


1 I Support events & activities for intercultural exchange

Start with a Friend, facilitates Tandem partnerships between people with and without an immigration background. It is particularly important that everyone meets on an equal footing so that everyone feels comfortable in our community. To this end, events and activities are organised time and again.

If you would like to actively participate in the event organisation and community building, then simply write an email to the team and they will explain everything you need to know in an introductory conversation.


2 I Get involved in the “Warm through the Night” project for homeless people

The youngcaritas Stuttgart would like to offer a low-threshold service for people without shelter or a permanent residence in Stuttgart. There is already established help with fixed locations such as the Olga46 day centre, the women’s boarding house and the Franziskusstube. Nevertheless, many of the homeless people spend their time on the streets of Stuttgart. There, it is now particularly COLD in winter and increasingly difficult for people.

This is exactly where youngcaritas wants to reach people with the campaign “Warm through the night” and give them not only warm drinks and food, but also an open ear and sympathy. As a volunteer, you will support the campaign from planning to implementation. Do you want to be part of it? Then sign up now for the list of interested volunteers.


3 I Become a reading mentor in an intercultural neighbourhood café

The parents’ café “Kafem” (run by the German-Turkish Forum Stuttgart e.V.) in the former Daimler housing estate in Hallschlag offers various activities for parents, children and families. In order to be able to organise a monthly reading afternoon for children in the future, the organisation is still looking for volunteer support from interested readers. Does this sound like an exciting task for you? Then get in touch with the team now.


4 I Support the Schwäbische Tafel as a shop assistant

The Schwäbische Tafel Stuttgart e.V. has set itself the task of collecting perfectly good food that is to be destroyed and giving it away in its own shops to people in need for a contribution towards costs. One of the supporting pillars are the volunteers at the Tafel, whose help makes our daily work possible in the first place.

Would you like to support people in need at the Tafel and save valuable food at the same time? Then contact the team for possible dates.


5 I Promote reuse of furniture and more Zero Waste awareness in Stuttgart

Weitergeben.org has set itself the task of building a network to connect owners and interested parties – primarily non-profit organisations – and thus give furniture a second life. In order to let as many people as possible know about it, the organisation is still looking for volunteers to help distribute information flyers on notice boards. Would you like to take on this small but important task? Then write a short message to the team and you will receive all further information.
