About the volunteering opportunity

A community that helps! The aim of the community welfare and social work is to improve the living situation of disadvantaged people and those in need of help.

In difficult life circumstances can many everyday situations become a major challenge for those affected. The tasks are primarily based on need and emergency situation on the ground. The Munich Red Cross supports sick people, helps young people, is involved in the field of migration and integration , takes care of older Munich citizens in the elderly and service centers and in retirement and nursing homes, and looks after the very young in the childcare facilities.

Volunteers are active in almost every area and make an important contribution to improving the quality of life of those in need or disadvantaged.

Your Tasks

Possible volunteer activities can be, depending on the location and time, among other things:

  • Visiting and escort service for Seniors
  • Work in the individual elderly and service centers / open elderly care (eg lunch table, help at events, own offers, etc.).)
  • Post sponsorship for seniors
  • Language sponsorship for people with refugee / migration background
  • Support in vocational education (job application training, offers for cultural participation in Munich etc..)
  • Intercultural cooking project
  • Support in finding housing for migrants
  • Support in job applications for migrants
  • Tutoring for young people with a migration background
  • Interpreting
  • Working in the Solln clothing store
  • Volunteering work in Kitas (playing together, sports and creative activities, homework supervision, etc.).)

Independent of these existing fields of activity, we are always looking for volunteer project leaders who develop their own or other social project ideas and lead. We look forward to you and your ideas!
