Since 1998 the Austrian Service Abroad prepares and sends out volunteers to partner organizations around the world. Due to this it has developed a large network of partnerships around the world (currently 36 countries) and has accumulated plenty of experience in dealing with and taking care of ongoing and active volunteers. In addition, it has also formed a large community of open-minded, culturally sensitive, educated and well-travelled people.

In 2021 the Austrian Service Abroad starts doing the reverse: receiving young internationals to Austria and providing them with a meaningful educational experience. This is the House of Responsibility (HRB) Incoming Fellows Project.

The HRB Incoming Fellows Project is based on the infrastructure of the Austrian Service Abroad. The infrastructure includes the people (past, present & future Austrian Servants Abroad), facilities and partnerships of the Austrian Service Abroad. The project is based on 3 pillars:

The reason d’etre of the HRB Incoming Fellows Project is to facilitate the meeting of people of different origins, identities, cultures, religions, languages, opinions, etc. and learn from one another and together, become friends and develop projects. The HRB Incoming Fellows Project is part of the idea for a House of Responsibility for the birthplace of Adolf Hitler. It is about living the diametrically opposite of what Adolf Hitler stood and still stands for.

You will be stationed in Vienna or Innsbruck and get to know many cities in Austria, including Braunau am Inn.

If you are from certain countries, you might obtain financial support for being an HRB Fellow in Austria.
