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 2005, we have been able to match more than 9,000 committed individuals with more than 350 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.de is operating in Berlin, Darmstadt, the Frankfurt am Main region, Cologne, the Munich region and Wiesbaden.
We will gladly advise you and your organisation on various topics, including volunteer management, digital volunteering, young volunteers or ways to build meaningful collaborations with companies – either personally or as part of our nationwide workshops.
