Together we create something extraordinary –  Are you with us?

Ehrenamt lohnt sich - z-sam, die Freiwilligenagentur der Diakonie München und Oberbayern

We believe that each person can contribute to society in a positive way.  Whether by means of an individual project, long-term charity work or simply through small gestures, civic engagement is/has the potential to be diverse, colourful and quite exceptional.

At the Zentrum für freiwilliges Engagement (Centre for Voluntary Engagement) in the heart of our city we offer people a place to meet and discuss and exchange ideas for initiating and taking forward civic engagement.

We are drop-in centre for volunteers and organisations wishing to advocate a social togetherness in our city’s community. We act as an agency for volunteers, connecting interested Munich citizens with social and religious institutions looking for support.

But we are more than just a mediator. We promote the development and implementation of new ideas and offer support in gaining qualifications as a volunteer. In our view civic engagement thrives on innovation and fresh approaches.
