The youth association in the area Unterallgäu offers one place for a volunteer in cooperation with the Federal Voluntary Service.
Open child and youth work is part of the social infrastructure of the community. It is committed to ensure that children and young people are integrated into the community, feel comfortable and are involved in the processes of our society. Our aim is to support and promote children and young people on their way to independence. The youth work of the Kreisjugendring sees itself as a supplement to the youth work of the association.
Children and young people are looked after professionally. They are offered rooms for communication without pressure to perform with their peers. The offers are open to all and offer the greatest possible protection against violence of any kind. The offers are geared to the life situation and the needs of the target group. Competent contact persons are available for age-specific questions and problems.
