The "Voluntary Year of Service" (FSDJ) forms a framework for the voluntary work of young people in social institutions for the period of one year's time. Currently the public funding of the FSDJ is based on a special directive, a legal regulation is in discussion. The aim of the evaluation was the representation of the implementation of the FSDJ in Austria against the backdrop of the special directive. Insights into positive and negative experiences with the actual processing of the FSDJ and the public funding formed the basis for the development of success criteria and improvement suggestions. The results of the evaluation were to be integrated into future models of the FSDJ.
