It is generally understood that volunteer work means working voluntarily, without payment, serving an organisation or a local community, which isn’t guided by material gain. Specified in the German word “Ehren-Amt” is the literal word for “honour”: A commitment with a high value for the community that deserves acknowledgement.
Voluntary commitment is the supporting pillar of our society.
This applies Germany-wide and also in the Main Taunus district. There are people here working in a voluntary capacity in approximately 1300 associations and organizations. Without all of these committed people our district wouldn’t be the same – less colourful, less diverse, less worth living.
There are as many volunteers, as questions from volunteers regarding their work. The Main Taunus district has therefore specifically appointed a volunteer work officer. He is the administrative district office‘s contact person for associations and organizations.
