SCC consists of more than just the Members of our Board. Our engaged members are an equally integral part of the association. In this series, we want to present to you some of them and what they are volunteering as.
What is your name?
Where do you volunteer?
Apart from IstKon, I’m currently volunteering the most in the ‘Young Europeans Federalist (JEF)’ in Konstanz and the ‘Jusos’, the youth organization of the ‘Social Democratic Party of Germany’.
Since when and as what do you volunteer as?
I’ve been involved in the Young Europeans as well as the Jusos since I began my studies in October 2018. Currently, I’m the district chairman of the JEF Konstanz and deputy chairman of the Jusos in Konstanz.
Please tell us a bit about your organization.
Both organizations are committed to a just, free and strong Europe. The Jusos are committed to this at the national level, the JEF at the European level. Therefore both organizations are organizing discussions, presentations, election campaigns and educational trips to various European cities, e.g. to Brussels or Berlin.
What is your motivation for volunteering there?
I’m a volunteer in both organizations because I want to be active in our daily politics. Political participation is an important cornerstone of democracy in one country. Because of issues such as education and social justice, freedom, and peace, I joined the ‘Social Democratic Party’. In addition, the struggle for the future of the European Union has been a concern for my engagement in the ‘Young Europeans’.
Do you want to tell the readers something additionally?
Get involved as much as possible! At a party, a political organization or something else. During your studies, you have the best opportunity for your engagement and you will gain important skills that will help you in your future career.
