About vostel.de

We are vostel

We are a small, Berlin-based social enterprise with a big dream: We envision a world where everyone contributes to a better, more sustainable future according to their abilities and regardless of how much time they have, what language they speak or what skills they bring with them. This is why we offer a wide range of volunteering opportunities at various non-profit organisations at vostel.de. We provide concrete possibilities for individuals, especially for the younger generation, to become socially engaged and help create a better world.

Since our founding in 2015, we have been able to match 24338 volunteers with 1300 social organisations through vostel.de.

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.

We're supporting non-profits Germany-wide, including Berlin, Bonn, Cologne, Darmstadt, Dusseldorf, the region of Frankfurt Main, Hamburg, Leipzig, Munich, Nuremberg, Stuttgart and Wiesbaden. In addition, we cooperate with organisations from all over Germany that are looking specifically for volunteers that support them online/remotely.
