Caritas Vienna is a NGO active in various fields of action from shelter, disability, care, community work and community arts. Our professional staff it supported by many volunteers.
We are interested to join projects (in this case as partner – not as coordinator) which deal with volunteering - especially in context of crafting, leisure, culture and community activities. Self-organisation of volunteers by digital solutions, volunteers working with disabled people, participation of migrants in voluntary work and various forms of short time engagements are particular interesting. We run many different programs since years i.e. in which volunteers accompany small groups from our institutions (shelter, elder people, disability) to visit cultural events or other projects which focus on the emphasise on experience-based learning. We would like to learn more about other programs in this field, exchange good practice and we would be willing to work on intellectual output as well.
On one hand we provide trainings only for volunteers and on the other hand volunteers have access to specific staff trainings.
We have gathered experience in a vide scope of European programs, and are currently part of several Strategic Partnerships both as partner and as coordinator.
