PATHFINDER organises projects for and with young immigrants in Saxony-Anhalt and trains them to become team leaders and mediators, so they can be motivated to make their own project ideas come true.
Cultural and Education
Doing a »FSJ Culture« means to be active in a cultural field of work for one year, to develop your own project, acquire new artistic and cultural skills in seminars, to collect new experiences and involve yourself in the community. The FSJ Culture is a practise field, a year of orientation or education, space for experimenting and can function as a preparation for further education. FSJ Culture aims at young people between 16 and 27 years. But we also have a cultural voluntary service for people who are older than 27 years. Go to www.fsjkultur-lsa.de.
Are you interested in a development-political volunteer service? Then Weltwärts will be the right thing for you: www.weltwaerts.jugend-lsa.de.
Has the idea of going abroad within Europe and doing a volunteer service focused on culture always been exciting to you? Or maybe your volunteering dream is to leave our continent? If so, you have come to the right place. We are a sending organization for the European Voluntary Service (EVS) and the International Youth Voluntary Service (IJFD). For more information go to

»Network for democracy and courage«
Our young group leaders are hosting project days in schools to bring a democratic way of thinking closer to the pupils. Starting from their own point of view, the students will discuss racism, prejudices, right extremism and humanism in order to stimulate and affect their own thoughts and behaviour.

There are 19 employees and about 10 free coworkers for the realisation of various working fields – employees and freelanced staff – working at the LKJ. Since our organisation coordinates various voluntary programmes in Saxony-Anhalt, we work a lot with national volunteers and trainees.
