Community Volunteering Week

The German National Network for Civil Society (BBE) has been hosting Germany's largest volunteer initiative, Community Volunteering Week, since 2004. "Be strong, get involved!" is the shared slogan of the initiatives, associations, government agencies, foundations and companies that participate in Community Volunteering Week with numerous projects, innovative ideas and different campaigns dealing with a variety of topics. The main goal is sustainable sponsorship of community organizations and volunteering in all areas of society and politics.

During Community Volunteering Week, Telekom offers its employees opportunities to volunteer and participate in activities initiated by BBE. Numerous Deutsche Telekom employees throughout Germany take this opportunity to support partner organizations. They work afternoon shifts at day care and youth centers in Berlin or offer media skills training for people with disabilities in collaboration with the Lebenshilfe aid organization, for example.
