The European Youth Portal is offering a volunteer opportunity within the KECK II project with the Österreichische Kinderfreunde organization in Austria which is one of the biggest family organizations in Austria dealing with leisure time projects for children and youngsters and educational work on family tasks for parents and adults. 

The main part of the regional work is camps and daytime-activities during the school holidays, mobile social-cultural project work with play busses on public areas, playing fields, sports projects for youth connected with drug prevention, integration activities with refugee children and immigrants, media work. Another very important part is networking, so the organization collaborates with other organizations and institutions working in our field.
