Volunteer work has an important role to play in supporting integration and contributes to social cohesion in Switzerland. It also helps establish social contacts and encourages exchange between the different population groups. Volunteer work is open to everyone including immigrants themselves. If you would like to become involved in supporting integration, for example in the context of a language tandem, mentoring in the search for a job or apprenticeship or assistance in dealing with the authorities, please contact the cantonal or communal integration agency in your area.
