A Voluntary Social Year (Freiwilliges Soziales Jahr, FSJ) offers the special opportunity to try out a new idea over a longer period of time, to gain learning experiences, to make a long-cherished idea a reality or to reorientate oneself. We offer places in our day-care centres, after-school care, family and children's creative centre and study centre. An FSJ can be completed between the ages of 18 and 26. A strong interest in educational work or in working with historical collections should be evident.

2) Voluntary Ecological Year

What is the Voluntary Ecological Year?

A Voluntary Ecological Year ( Freiwilliges Ökologisches Jahr, FÖJ) offers young people the opportunity to actively work for the conservation of our nature. By getting to know many problem areas in the field of environmental protection in a practical way, it should help to understand the complex interrelationships of our ecosystems better and to pass on this knowledge to others. An FÖJ can be completed between the ages of 16 and 26.  A pronounced willingness to work on ecological topics and concrete nature and environmental work should be present.

Whar are the tasks?

Apart from helping to maintain the garden as well as to harvest and process the produce cultivated there, activities in the school garden include assistance in events relating to environmental education for children, especially the supervision of preschool and school children during their work in the garden. Another key point is the preparation of teaching materials for environmental education and public relations work as well as providing assistance in organising environmental project days and festivities.


The organiser and one of the sponsors of the FÖJ is the Stiftung Umwelt, Natur- und Klimaschutz des Landes Sachsen-Anhalt. To apply for a FÖJ, a written application must be submitted to the FÖJ as early as possible. The application must include a detailed letter of application stating the motivation for an FÖJ, a curriculum vitae with address and telephone number as well as a copy of the recent certificate.
