Application conditions and requirements for volunteering:

A volunteer working within Grenzenlos doesn’t need any special experiences nor specific working skills, neither special language skills. The only thing which we expect from a volunteer is the motivation to work within our organisation. “Grenzenlos Without Barriers”is only available for volunteers with a physical disability. As our project will be very tailor-made to the individual volunteer, it is hard to say which profile a volunteer should have. We would welcome in any case volunteers that are open to new experiences, willing to try new things and to challenge their personal limits.
