Then you are in the right place!

We are looking for people dedicated to learning and open to new experiences to join our team of volunteers based in Vienna. During the 6-months volunteering program, lasting from January to June, you will support our team with different activities. To maximize the learning experience, we are creating different roles for our volunteers. You can read more about them below and decide which one(s) suits you best. 🙂

Social Media Manager

  • You will be sourcing and publishing the content for our social media channels. Are you creative, resourceful, and know (or want to learn) your way around Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter? This role might be for you!

Happiness Manager

  • You’d be in charge of organizing fun team building activities, supporting recruitment of SIA staff and volunteers, office management, etc. Besides organizational skills, good mood is what you bring to the table. 🙂

Program Master

  • You bring fresh ideas to the team and implement them in event management, program design, creating workshops, and more.

Fundraiser

  • You will be screening for funding opportunities, researching, and writing funding proposals!

Technical and IT Support

  • Are you tech savvy? Interested in website management? Do your friends come to you when they experience technical issues? You’re the one we’re looking for!

PR/Communications Officer 

  • You have good communication skills and a passion for writing and conveying a message. In addition to English, you are comfortable with the German language as well.

SIA Germany Support

  • You are excited about establishing a new support system for young people in Germany & it goes without saying that you have first-class German language skills. 🙂

Alumni Community Builder

Please read the more detailed description of the roles here

All the projects you participate in will be based on your interests and the skills you have or want to develop during the program!


In exchange for your time, dedication, and creativity, we will provide you with:

  • The opportunity of working in a young, enthusiastic, and multicultural team, and directly with SIA’s core members
  • Development of entrepreneurial skills (project management, design thinking, social innovation, and more)
  • Behind the scenes look into the social entrepreneurship scene in Austria and beyond
  • Certificate of completion & recommendation
  • Membership at Impact Hub Vienna

Our expectation is that you commit 6 hours per week working with us, if possible at the Impact Hub, and online. You should also feel comfortable communicating in English.

Interested? 

Applications are now closed. Our next volunteering call will open in May. 

If you have any questions, write to us at people@socialimpactaward.net. Who knows, some of them might be answered in the story of our former volunteer Lukas.
