Get involved at LenZ

We need you!

The LenZ is our learning and family centre for children, young people and families at risk of exclusion in Vienna. We offer free learning support, parent counselling and education and family support as well as a language café and community action. We are always looking for volunteers to help us with this.

All activities are led by professionals from the LenZ team and implemented with the help of volunteers. In addition to intensive personal support, volunteers are also offered further training and intervision. An extremely appreciative attitude towards our volunteers is very important to us!
