The Austrian Service Abroad is an organization providing volunteering opportunities (Auslandsdienst) for people of all ages (minimum 18 years), educational backgrounds and sexes. The prerquisites are the German language (critical for participation in conferences and meetings) as well as having the main residence in Austria for a minimum of 1 year prior to the start of the service. Provided the service abroad lasts for at least 10 months it may be accredited as an alternative to the mandatory Austrian military or national service. Your tutor may inform you about further details.
The application for an Auslandsdienst as well as the selection of volunteers is always done by the Austrian Service Abroad organization. Please do not contact any partner organizations by yourself!
The first and most important point of contact within the organization is always the tutor of your federal state. Note the following: the more poeople you contact, the more you communicate with them, the faster you obtain all relevant information.
