Volunteering in Switzerland

Volunteering is an enriching experience. Whether via a non-profit organization or as an individual, by submitting a project idea or through voluntary work – you too can do your part.

Find the right volunteering opportunity for you

Do you want to get involved in volunteering? We’re very pleased to hear that. Work out which kind of volunteer work appeals to you from a large, constantly changing selection of projects. For a more targeted search, you can also filter by region and language.

Find a project

Submit your project or your project idea

As a non-profit organization, use UBS Helpetica to your advantage. Provided the volunteer projects you propose satisfy our criteria, you will reach a far broader audience by publishing them on UBS Helpetica.

You can also submit your own project ideas as an individual.

Please note the following submission criteria:

  • Must be in Switzerland and clearly in the interests of the common good.
  • Must match one of the four key topics (environment, education, social issues, entrepreneurship).
  • Can be implemented by non-specialists in Switzerland.
  • Not linked with any commercial interests.
  • Focus on volunteer work and not on raising funds (e.g., fundraising, promotions).
  • Can be implemented with an established charity whose members have the required experience and skills.

How it will work:

  • We will carefully review your idea.
  • We will contact you if we have further questions.

Submit project

Project participants must be 18 or over and living in Switzerland.
