Being volunteer in Halle and surrounding


Peace services - International longterm voluntary services is one area of work of Friedenskreis Halle e.V. Within that area, we inform on such services, send volunteers abroad and host volunteers Germany.

In hosting volunteers from abroad in Germany we operate as coordinating organisation for services at different places of assignment in Halle and surrounding and as place of assignment ourselves. We aim at cooperation with permanent partner organisations as sending organisations.

We operate via two funding programs: the EU program “Erasmus+” (European voluntary service, EVS) and the German program “weltwärts” (developmental voluntary service “weltwärts”). Differences are mainly at administrative level. We aim at few differences in the actual design of our services.

We understand and designed our services as peace and learning services. A service lasts 12 months and usually starts mid september each year. In principle we welcome everybody as volunteer, who meets the administrative criteria and who feels ready and is open for a service with us.
