Our offer

  • Sabbatical coaching
  • Social sabbatical
  • Intercultural trainings

A ’social sabbatical’ is more than a time-out!

It’s a unique experience which can lead to a change in perspective and both personnel and professional development.
For example, your skills could be needed in building up a vocational information centre at an educational establishment in Nepal, designing a

marketing campaign for an environmental project in Argentina or creating an eco-tourism concept in Zambia.

Together we choose a suitable project for you. We give you training before you start and support you during and after your project work, thus creating a framework for a secure and sustainable ‘social sabbatical’.

How we support you


Our services include:


  • Placement in one of our approved projects, chosen to match your qualifications and your placement preferences.
  • Information on your country of assignment, project and project environment.
  • Access to our website’s private area with checklists, manuals and guidance documents.
  • Individual preparation for your assignment.
  • Organization of airport transfer and accommodation in your country of assignment.
  • Personal mentoring before, during and after your assignment.
  • A reference letter after your return.
  • On request: assistance regarding visa-issues, flight bookings and reintegration into working-life.

Expenses of your social sabbatical


Again and again we are asked why one has to pay for a ‘social sabbatical’.
Manager für Menschen is not financed by a public authority. However there are significant tasks and costs behind the scenes in arranging a sabbatical, including identifying, visiting and assessing partner organizations; agreeing your schedule of work; organizing airport transfers and accommodation; assisting you in your preparation and supporting you during and after your placement.

To cover the costs of our services we therefore charge a placement and preparation fee of 1.250 Euro. This fee is regardless of the length of your assignment.

In order to not affect the project budget, most of the costs of your stay have to be covered by yourself. These include your visa, your travel expenses, accommodation and food. You will need to pay these costs on-site.

Please also consider possible costs for insurance, preventive health care and other useful preparatory measures such as language classes.
