Care in every sense
The volunteers in Herzogenaurach are organized in more than 160 associations and initiatives. Voluntary commitment is meant for everybody.
Approx. 23 million people in Germany are voluntarily committed. Voluntary work is as diverse as people are. There are numerous examples for voluntary commitment, also in Herzogenaurach with its more than 160 associations. There are volunteers extinguishing fires, assisting in case of flood or natural catastrophe, keeping themselves and others fit as sports coaches, adopting responsibility with regard to traffic, or constantly taking care of those in need. Volunteers are committed in environmental protection, in political life, cultural, music and arts. Their offers create community and solidarity.
In order to support associations, organizations and institutions with finding, keeping and taking care of volunteers and trainers, the town administration has created the position of coordinator for honorary offices. Besides the comprehensive coordination and consulting work, it is the main task to create a professional environment for voluntary commitment.
This is very important for a town like Herzogenaurach with its moving history. Commitment pays off!
