Volunteers from Germany
We have a partnership with the „Verein für Soziale Dienste International e.V.“ (Social Services), and 26 volunteers have come to Texas and been a part of our big family through this program since 2001.
In the role of Volunteer for Support and Administrative Services, they support us for twelve months in the departments of administration, development, operations, commissary, dining, and other support areas that are so critical to our agency.
We match maturity level, skills, and experience with the needs in the organization to place each volunteer in the right area or support positions. A positive attitude, commitment to the role assigned, honesty, and flexibility are key features we look for in a volunteer. The relationships continue with children and/or staff long after they return to Germany from Boys and Girls Country service. Please note that volunteers must be at least 21 years of age.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, please contact Steffen Bruhn via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
