The Federal Association for Cultural Child and Youth Education (Bundesvereinigung Kulturelle Kinder- und Jugendbildung, BKJ) offers 2,500 volunteers a place in the voluntary services for culture and education every year. To this end, the BKJ cooperates with organisations involved in cultural and educational work, including 180 libraries, throughout Germany. Central principles of the voluntary services, such as the creation of inclusive access and the orientation towards the interests of the volunteers, are presented and the importance of the work of the placement centres and organisations is illustrated on the basis of empirical data.
