VOLUNTARY SOCIAL YEAR IN GERMANY

“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” – Elizabeth Andrew

 

MediNurse gives the youth a chance to gain insight into the world of social and nursing careers before beginning an apprenticeship or a university degree. Under the guidance of professionals, volunteers can try out and decide whether a career in the social and nursing sector suits their interests. Most Volunteers end up practicing a career in the social and nursing sector.
