ASF in the United States

Volunteer Service and Summer Camps

You want to work for peace, understanding, solidarity, gain experience living abroad and becoming part of an international volunteer group?

With ASF, you can get involved for one year in a variety of areas that promote remembrance and social justice. Or you can immerse yourself in an ASF summer camp experience for two weeks where you promote peace and understanding in a specific project.

International Summer Camp

­čî× Summer is just around the corner. You don’t have any plans yet? How about a summer camp with ASF? For over 60 years, Aktion S├╝hnezeichen Friedensdienste (ASF) has been working as an organization for remembrance, understanding and human rights.

Information and to register

“Hello! My name is Rose Shafer and I am a graduate of the College of William and Mary majoring in History and German. I initially started learning German for fun and then I spent my junior year in Freiburg, where I completed an internship at an archive and explored museums and historical sites throughout Europe. I am thrilled to return to Germany, where I can put my passion for history to use by fostering remembrance of the Holocaust and its victims. Understanding the past can help us shape a more peaceful future, and I hope to do my part in creating that future during my year in Buchenwald Memorial Site.”
