It is a small youth center with a good communication and cooperation with the local community of Gratwein. So problems with young people in the youth center are not really usual, most of young people like the atmosphere and enjoy their free time there.

Therefore, the volunteer will get a monthly ticket for public transport from Graz to Gratwein (there & back) from the host organisation.
The Volunteer will be provided with cash in order to buy food for his/her self supply (250,00 € month)
