Volunteer in Germany in Spring 2024

Our partner, IJDG is looking for short term volunteers to help support their environment project in Germany.


IJDG has been organising volunteer service programmes since 1949.

They are an independent, non-profit association for international youth work, a recognised independent youth welfare organisation, and one of the largest and oldest workcamp organisations in Germany.

Each year, they assist around 5,000 young people into volunteer work in Germany and abroad. Giving them the opportunity to be creative, act in solidarity, take responsibility for themselves, and discover their own true potential and strengths.

Are you a nature lover? Then this is the perfect workcamp for you!

On this placement you will have the opportunity to spend 2 weeks working and living in the forest. Your main task will be to plant trees as part of an active contribution to conservation!

You will also be helping out with several other conservation tasks, such as, forest maintenance, constructing and repairing protective fences, and preserving the biotopes in the area.

By working on these activities, you will also learn a lot about the ecosystem of a forest!

What will I be doing?


  • 2 weeks – March 31 2024 – April 9 2024

  • Interest in nature, environmentalism and conservation
  • Some knowledge of German would be helpful.
