We are a small Berlin-based social enterprise with a big goal: We want to give everyone the chance to get involved and make a difference in local volunteering projects – regardless of how much time they have, what language they speak or what skills they bring with them. Since our founding in 2015, we have been able to match more than 8,000 committed individuals with more than 300 partner organisations through our vostel-o-mat. In addition to recruiting volunteers and advising non-profit organisations on all aspects of their volunteer management, we help companies plan and implement rewarding corporate volunteering activities. At present, vostel is operating in Berlin, Cologne and Munich.
