About the volunteering opportunity

We are looking for motivated volunteers for a 1:1 care on our vacation trips!

Every year we go to the beautiful Kinderbauerngut in Langenstriegis, Central Saxony (see link below). An old farm, free-range pigs, a stream running through the grounds, goats, hammocks and much more. This is the ideal place to offer our clients (mainly teenagers although people of all age groups do participate) a relaxing vacation and their families a nice relief. We offer a colorful program with various volunteer vacation activities on site.

To ensure our clientele a nice vacation, we are looking for volunteers for 1:1 care. Waiting for you, besides a lot of fun, are some unique exciting experiences, insights into the very diverse autism spectrum, lots of nice people, professional development and a certificate of participation. Each vacation trip is led by 2 main staff members of the Autism Center.

Just contact us personally to learn even more about us and our vacation trip

About us: When we are not in Langenstriegis on a vacation trip, we accompany people from the entire autism spectrum in the form of 1:1 support and networking (see "More about the organization"), regardless of age and life situation. We perceive people on the autism spectrum as individual personalities with strengths and weaknesses. They're supported by us on their way to independent, self-reliant action in professional, school, personal, and public life. Since 2018 we are part of the BBW Leipzig Group and the Youth and Educational Support Association.
