Volunteering.dk is part of frivilligjob.dk
Volunteering.dk is a sub-site to Frivilligjob.dk – the largest portal for volunteerjobs in Denmark. On Volunteering.dk we try to bring organisations and volunteers with an international background together. As an organisation you can post volunteer jobs and as a potential volunteer you can browse through all the options posted by the organisations.
We try to show a broad range of volunteering opportunities that is offered by different organisations in Denmark and we wish to inspire people to discover volunteer work that matches their interests and skills. Therefore, we have very few limits on who can use our services to find volunteers. Among entries from traditional associations, such as the Red Cross and Danish Scouts, you will also find job postings from grassroots organisations, social enterprises and projects started by public institutions.
Volunteering.dk wants to give everybody a chance to engage in their community and therefore our service is free to use both for volunteers and nonprofit organisations and initiatives. See our guidelines for more information.
If you want help face-to-face in finding a volunteer job or have questions about volunteering in your city, we recommend contacting your local volunteer center. Find a map here.
Volunteering.dk was founded with support from The Obel Family Foundation.
The registration form is currently only in Danish, but if you fill in the information in English, your job post will automatically be shown correctly on volunteering.dk. Alternatively you can write your information in Danish, and check the button ‘translate my job to English’. Your job post will then be translated.
