The income voluntary service in Lübeck is organised by SHL on behalf of its European umbrella organisation SAME. This means, that the position is formally registered with SHL, the work nonetheless focusses on SAME activities. Since 2018 both organisations have run a joint programme and office in the city of Lübeck, Northern Germany. The programme connects young people from all over Europe through the concept of the Solidarity Action Day and gives them the opportunity to experience and shape a joint Europe. As a volunteer, you will be part of our international team working in the Lübeck office for SAME and SHL. The team aims to spread the Solidarity Action Day to additional countries across Europe and to expand the impact of the Solidarity Action Day by organising international youth encounters and seminars. Together with you, we will build bridges and bring together young people from all over Europe!

SAME stands for ‘Solidarity Action Day Movement in Europe’. The movement includes several European youth organizations which carry out an annual Solidarity Action Day. During this day, pupils get the chance to exercise a job of their choice instead of going to school. Their salaries are used to support youth-related projects all over whole world. By offering learning possibilities and spreading the concept of the Solidarity Action Day, SAME empowers young people to get informed, take a stand and act.
