Refer your students to Volunteering@WU

Volkunteering

Volunteering@WU - Lernen macht Schule is a cooperation between WU, Caritas Vienna and BILLA, committed to educational equality regardless of the socio-economic background. Since 2010, each semester, the program has been connecting around 130 university students with 260 children and teenagers from 20 Caritas institutions, including accommodations for asylum seekers, mother-child houses, counselling centers, and others. Students and kids meet on a weekly basis in three different buddy tracks (study-, music- or sports-buddy) to learn with and from each other. Currently, students are also engaged in the Caritas accommodations’ program for refugee families from Ukraine.

The program applies the method of service learning: students perform volunteer work (a service) and complete complementary seminars, supervision, and reflection assignments (learning). They receive 3 ECTS credits per term in addition to WUs social skills certificate.

We encourage you to refer your students to get involved with Volunteering@WU!

Please note that German skills are required to take part in this program.
