Help a family of mountain farmers with the harvest, run a language course for migrants or stack shelves in the Caritas Market: Donate your time to other people by volunteering with Caritas. 


By working as a volunteer with Caritas, you get to know people with different perspectives and help them to integrate socially. You can pass on your knowledge and learn a lot of new things. Depending on what area in which you volunteer, you get appropriate training and, on request, a Certificate of contributed working hours.

Caritas Switzerland and the regional Caritas organisations offer various opportunities for volunteering: With Caritas' Mountain Action, you support a mountain farmer’s family in an emergency situation and provide temporary relief to the family where it is most needed: with childcare, in the stable, work on the Alp. You can volunteer in a mountain action as a company with your staff and give practical support to mountain farmers. 

The Regional Caritas Organisations offer other opportunities for volunteering, such as spending time with disadvantaged children in the ‘With Me‘ project, working as a sales person in the Caritas Markets, or supporting seriously ill people.

There are numerous options - we are waiting for you! You can find more information in German and French on the corresponding websites.


Volunteering abroad?

Caritas does not offer volunteer placements from Switzerland in projects abroad. Many of our partner organisations work with local volunteers.
