Germany, a global leader and founding member of the European Union, is home to a culture like no other. Yearly traditions like visits from St. Nikolaus, Silvester (New Year’s), and Karneval will spark your creative spirit. From the Gothic inspired Heidelberg Castle to the modern Sony Center in Berlin, Germany is also abuzz with awe-inspiring architecture. As a volunteer here, you can visit nine surrounding countries all with your German visa thanks to a shared border agreement. Weather in Germany is chilly and rainy for much of the year, perhaps this is why Germany is home to so many influential philosophers, artists, musicians and scientists.

As a volunteer in Germany, you will be hosted by ICJA, ICYE’s German partner organization. ICJA began as a reconciliation effort after World War II, and has continued as a way to foster volunteerism and public service. ICJA sends more than 300 German volunteers abroad every year, and they welcome 70 incoming international volunteers.
