Program Details

Official Website: https://singularitygroup.net/

Many volunteers have joined without prior knowledge or specific skills. There are tasks available for anyone to contribute, no matter their prior work experience. On the contrary, volunteers have the opportunity, support & tools available to acquire new skills while working on projects.

While having certain skills or job experience is always welcome, having a good mindset and always doing your best seems to be much more important. However, it is definitely also helpful to know about our current & past projects, such as documentaries & listening to the real talk podcasts.

This place tries to be as efficient as possible, inspired by Effective Altruism. It is the perfect environment for people who want to have the most possible positive impact in the world. Work alongside like-minded people that are dedicated & self-driven to contribute.


Activities & Shift

From my personal experience, volunteers seem to work here because it is their passion, not their job. Most work independently or in small groups and with the guidance of other more experienced volunteers. They also enjoy that there are no set working hours, allowing a lot of flexibility & freedom.

Also check out our other volunteer listings on Worldpackers for various other activities & tasks you could contribute with! :)


Rules

Since the place is in Germany, everyone is required to follow german laws, such as no illegal drugs (medicine is different from drugs) and no piracy (e.g. torrenting).
No smoking of any kind (e.g. cigarettes, weed, vape) and no pets are allowed in the house.

Common sense good behavior is expected from all volunteers, such as:
Be considerate towards others.
Respect other people’s privacy.
Take care of facilities provided to you.
Clean up after yourself.
No shouting, loud music etc. in hallways next to sleeping rooms.
