Se ofrecen becas Dinamarca para participar en un proyecto de voluntariado europeo en ese país.
2nd September 2019 to 1st January 2020
The folk high school is placed in Denmark – a small village with a couple of groceries, drug stores, schools and a library. Is close to both beach and forest. There is often arranged activities away from the high school. The type of activities depends on the season, but examples of activities are going to the beach for a swim or touring on the school bikes.
Folk High School is a contemporary Danish folk high school. The students are primarily between 17 and 25 years old. At Folk High School we believe that a precondition for peaceful coexistence in the world is the unbiased interaction of people from different cultural backgrounds.
Folk High School offers an exchange of life experience, ideas and viewpoints among people from different cultures, building on responsibility to the community and respect for the individual.
The volunteers will be lodged at the high school where they will live in a separate area with bedrooms, bathroom and kitchenette with a microwave etc. They will eat at the school together with the students and the staff.
Examples of activities in which the volunteer could be involved:
and activities in which the volonteer will be involved:
Who will administer the volunteer stay?
Brenderup Højskole has a partnership with coordinators Denmark, who will administer the Erasmus+ grant – including the volunteer allowance to be given to the volunteers during the program. Coordinators will make sure that every EVS volunteer gets a mentor at the project and a contact person outside of the project. This contact person will help the volunteer to integrate into the Danish local community and support the volunteer with every matter related to the stay of the volunteer. Coordinators also helps the volunteer become part of the overall EVS network in Denmark. Both Coordintaors and Højskole will assist volunteers with the administative paperwork related to arriving in Denmark. Højskole as the hosting school will provide accommodation and three meals a day to the volunteer.
Volunteers above 25 years of age who are open-minded, reflective, mature and full of initiative will be preferred.
The volunteers must be able to speak English at a conversational level.
A volunteer with a non-Danish cultural background will hopefully give the folk high school some extra intercultural energy and inspiration to its work with the global dimension.
If the volunteer has interest and skills related to sustainability, social media and communication and sport it is a plus.
We will study carefully all application and selected candidates will be invite for Skype interview.
For the selection of the volunteers we will need:
– CV with picture (made in the last month) with skype name included
– Motivational letter, writing that your sending organisation will be “Building Bridges”. We ask all candidates to send a specific letter of motivation – why they want to volunteer with us rather than just a general EVS one. The volunteer is chosen according to his/her motivation and interest to the project and to the activities. It will be paid special attention to cover letters.
