The voluntary social year in Germany is a state-funded voluntary work program, particularly for young adults. It can last between six and eighteen months and also be spent working abroad.
The idea behind this voluntary social year has its origin in the Protestant and Roman Catholic church by organizing a diaconical year. In 1964 the German parliament conducted a law, that became the basis of the platform, that supplies officially certified organizations and government institutions with volunteers.
