The Voluntary Social Year is a form of the state-regulated youth voluntary service that enables young people aged 16 to 27 after completing school to gain knowledge and experience that offer important guidance for their own career and life. In addition, through a youth voluntary service, young people learn to better assess their own abilities. They use their interests and strengths for the common good and often experience this as an enrichment for their own lives.
