1st February 2019 to 31st January 2020
Deadline: 13th July 2018. If you have been shortlisted for the project we will contact you for a skype interview before the 1st September 2018.
Boatyard builds new Smack Dinghies, carry out restorations and maintain the center’s own Smack Dinghies. All the rental dinghies will come into the boatyard once every year for general maintenance. That way Naturcenter makes sure that all the boats are in good condition.
The boatyard also functions as working museum seeing that the work is being done similar to the old traditional boat building craftsmanship. Visitors are very welcome to come and have a look inside – questions and exchanges of experience are welcomed.
Naturcenter collaborates with a German boat building college who each year sends their students to the centre, for them to get an insight into traditional Danish boat building craftsmanship.
The everyday life at the center contains lots of different work depending on the season. The winter activities will primary be renovation of the dinghies in the boatyard. The summer is the height of the season where trips are arranged for visitors – mostly sailing dinghies and kayaks.
The volunteers will participate in the everyday work on their own and together with the other employees at the center. This work includes sailing, upkeeping the dinghies, painting, cutting grass, guiding tourists, helping in the café, upkeeping campsite and various gear.
The staff also learn from the volunteers. The volunteers add further life and energy to the center which is highly valued. Naturcenter is open all around the year. There are one employee at the center. The primary target group is children and youths whom are educated and with whom the staff and the volunteers sail. The secondary target group is a mix of different visitors, who come to the boatyard, exhibition and campsite.
The volunteer will stay with a local Danish host family and will be expected to become part of the family and as such take part in the activities and responsibilities in the family.
The volunteer must like being outdoor as almost all of the activities at the center are outdoor activities. The volunteer must be open-minded and prepared to be involved in all the various tasks together with the rest of the staff. The volunteer must be able to speak English at a conversational level.
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.
