October 5th, 2016 9:53 am


Want to initiate something?
Not afraid to take on a bit of responsibility?
Looking for something a bit different from school, university or a training programme?

Then take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and apply now for a voluntary social work gap year or a federal volunteer service with Reformationsjubiläum 2017 e.V.

What’s waiting for you:

You will have a fulfilling time here. You will work with others. You will make new friends. You will collect experiences and develop ideas on how to proceed after the event is over. You will try things out and see what suits you and what doesn’t.

Generally, involvement lasts 12 months, beginning in September, October or November 2016. It is also possible to extend this involvement to 18 months. With your involvement, you will be part of a unique community of volunteers with 300 other people of the same age. Living and working together, you will shape the course of your involvement yourself by planning your own activities and projects.

It was in Wittenberg in 1517 that Martin Luther’s Reformation first began and where it changed the world.


Volunteers will receive company housing free of charge in Wittenberg with three rooms which are you will share with three others in a shared flat. The flats are furnished with beds, tables, chairs and a small kitchenette.


Volunteers generally live in shared flats of four. The 3-room flats are provided by r2017 e.V. as company housing. All volunteers will also receive free board, as well as a monthly allowance of €150.00.


The voluntary service is a service subject to a national insurance contribution. This means that during the year, volunteers are covered by health insurance, pension insurance, unemployment insurance, and accident insurance. Volunteers do not need to pay for this. These contributions are borne 100 per cent by the agency or the places of employment.
