Federal Voluntary Service Implementation

The regular duration of a federal voluntary service is twelve months. However, it may also be agreed or extended for a period of between six or 18 months. As part of a special pedagogical concept, the duration can also be up to 24 months.

The Federal Voluntary Service is accompanied by pedagogical support. For this purpose, 25 seminar days are mandatory for volunteers under 27 years of age for a 12-month service period. Volunteers aged 27 and over attend seminar days to an appropriate extent. Attendance at the seminars is considered to be a service period. The concept of the Federal Voluntary Service provides for the acquisition of so-called vocational lyreskills. If necessary, the service may be credited as an internship. At the end of the service, the competent authority shall issue you with a certificate and a certificate. This includes information on the nature, duration and professional characteristics of the service.

Process flow

The daily working time corresponds to a full-time employment. If you have reached the age of 27, you can also do your service part-time (with more than 20 hours per week).

The first six weeks of service shall be considered as a probationary period. The service may be terminated within a period of two weeks. After the probationary period, the notice period is four weeks, at the 15th or the end of the month. In addition, the employment relationship can also be terminated prematurely for important reasons, e.g. because of the start of vocational training or studies. During service, the Occupational Safety and Health Act (ArbSchG) and the Youth Employment Protection Act (JArbSchG) as well as the provisions of the Federal Leave Act (BUrlG) apply. For example, if you have 12 months of service, you are entitled to 24 days of leave.
