  2. After receiving it from you, we will invite you to an information session with us. At the session, we will tell you about the work of Caritas, the basic conditions for voluntary work, and the many different types of opportunities for voluntary work in Wien and NÖ East. Based on your interests and skills, we will help you to find an appropriate voluntary position.
