(Freiwlliges Soziales Jahr)
FSJ (Freiwlliges Soziales Jahr) is a social work program in Germany.
In this program FSJ participants will be volunteers to work in the social sector of the Panzer country. Even though they are volunteers, it does not mean that FSJ participants are not paid, they are also given pocket money. However, it is not as much as those who join other work programs such as Ausbildung.
Although the title holds Soziales which means social. It turns out that the FSJ program is not only for the social sector, there are also other fields such as Okoligi, or others. It's just that for the social sector, there are quite a lot of FSJ vacancies.
More specifically, this FSJ work area in Germany could include kindergarten, hospital or elderly care center. The pocket money that they will be earned will also vary. Which is about 300-500 Euro. This is adjusted to the rules and location, as well as the working hours applicable in each company or träger.
