Join us!

At PFIF there are a number of possibilities to join the team!

To give you a more precise idea of where you can get involved, we have created a small overview. Furthermore, we are open to your suggestions and we are looking forward to any new ideas!

  • Support is always welcome when designing and finding ideas for seminars! Planning, organisation and the development of concepts are part of it. Is there a topic that is particularly close to your heart or have you been thinking about development cooperation and volunteer services for a long time?
  • Do you feel like going into the field of public relations? Since we want to share our ideas with as many people as possible, social media channels are indispensable for us! Therefore we always need people who take care of our various accounts, write articles for the website, Instagram and Facebook, or take care of press releases, newspaper articles and statements/position papers.
  • As former volunteers, we want to be perceived as an independent actor in the volunteer service and represent our interests independently. For this purpose, the weltwärts programme has elected delegates in the programme steering committee. They need support in terms of content, because only together we are strong! So if you would like to get to know the world of politics and committee work and discuss the content of proposals and developments at weltwärts and beyond, you are at the right address!
  • The South-North component of the weltwärts programme is a recurring theme in discussions. You are a South-North volunteer yourself, do you have experience with South-North volunteers (tandem, etc.) or are you simply interested in expanding the programme?
  • Global power structures and Eurocentrism are of course also reflected in an international volunteer service. Do you want to create with us an awareness of post-colonialism in volunteer service and not leave the structures uncriticized?

If one of these points appeals to you, or if you have a completely new idea, please contact us via the e-mail address!

You are not sure if pfif is for you, or you just want to learn more about the weltwärts structures? No problem, we organise an online meeting for interested people several times a year where we present the pfif & weltwärts structures. To make sure you don’t miss the next meeting, just follow us on Facebook or Instagram!
