In Denmark there is a cultural and societal tradition of volunteering in some kind of association, that stands close to your heart and which interests you. Naturally the same goes for Aarhus.

Aarhus has a tradition for volunteer work - and the reach is wide. There is volunteer work within numerous areas; from elder care and social work to sport clubs and culture. To be a volunteer is a great way to exercise active citizenship.


There are more than 2700 active associations, clubs etc. in Aarhus. This means that you have plenty of opportunity to find an area, where you will fit right in and which will give joy to both others as well as yourself as a volunteer.


Volunteering connects you to others

Being a volunteer is not only a benefit to the association or club you join, but indeed also for you. Being a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network and gives you a great opportunity to take on new tasks that you not necessarily have worked with before. 


An opportunity to impact your community

The obvious benefit of volunteering is the chance for you to make a mark on your community. Unpaid volunteers help strengthen both the nearby community and the whole society itself. Showing that it´s not a quid pro quo attitude that dominates, but a willingness to help out and contribute where need is, makes a great impact on your community and fellow citizen.
