12 Months of Volunteering with NaturKultur e.V. in Bremen, Germany

*** The call has been closed ***

Are you dreaming of being part of an NGO? For 12 months, you could join our team, network with organisations in Bremen and become an ambassador for international youth projects in our city!

Dates: 04.09.2020 – 31.08.2021

Location: Bremen, Germany

As part of the project “From Global To Local”, we will invite 5 young people to volunteer at 5 different institutions in Bremen. Together, you will be making an active contribution to our city, the people that live in it, and the environment we share together. The European Solidarity Corps wants to bring people from different backgrounds together to form a society based on mutual acceptance, solidarity and cohesion.

This project position will be hosted by us, NaturKultur e.V.

About the hosting organisation

Founded in 2011 by a newly returning ESC (then EVS) volunteer to give people in North-West Germany the opportunity to take part in Erasmus+ Youth exchanges, NaturKultur e.V. is now one of the most active organisation in Bremen when it comes to international projects.

We coordinate ESC volunteers in Bremen, organise between 10-12 youth exchanges per year, and have as many local workshops as possible. We work to promote multi-cultural communication, democratic participation, inclusion, tolerance and European citizenship amongst other things, which is also reflected in our super international team.

We are responsible for the administration of the project that hosts you in Bremen.

Our team mostly work in two places in Bremen – our office in Pappelstraße 90/92 in Bremen Neustadt, and our Youth House, KulturHaus, in Garlstedt (45min bus ride from the main station), where we organise youth exchanges and training courses.

To read more about us, browse our website!

You can also find us on Facebook, Instagram @naturkultur_e.v and YouTube.

Your responsibilities include:

  • Communicating with youth houses, schools and other youth work organisations in Bremen and Niedersachsen in order to initiate partnerships
  • Attending events organised by NaturKultur’s existing partners in order to develop the relationships with said organisations further
  • Organise presentations about Erasmus+ and ESC volunteering opportunities in said organisations, also for public events in the city or at University fairs
  • Helping out with website maintenance
  • Planning own workshops for the local community on topics of interest
  • Organising the volunteering community in Bremen – with the volunteers hosted by NaturKultur, but also beyond that
  • Supporting the NaturKultur social media team on the occasion that they request it

Other than the work at your hosting organisation, you will organise 2 bigger events for the community of Bremen together with the other 4 volunteers on this project. The topic, framework, audience – everything will be up to your team to decide! An incredible chance to make an impact on something that you are passionate about!

Logistics

NaturKultur e.V will be the coordinating organisation in charge of all logistical matter.

You will be accommodated in a flat in Bremen with two other ESC volunteers.

Bremen is a city in North-West Germany (around 500.000 inhabitants), not far from Hamburg and the North Sea coast. Bremen is a vibrant, multi-cultural city with a lot of young people and both a historical centre and newer areas of towns.

As an ESC volunteer, you will receive health insurance, monthly pocket money for food and other expenses (246€ + 150€). Travel costs will be reimbursed depending on the travel distance (normally between 180-360€). If you need a visa, we will support you in the process with the embassy.

You will be supported by a Coordinator and a Mentor to help you get settled in your work place and the city of Bremen. You will also receive German language lessons of 2 hours per week.

You can apply, if you…

  • … are a resident of an EU member state (not Germany)
  • … between 18-30 years old (on the day you start your ESC)
  • motivated to develop presentational and communicational skills through learning-by-doing
  • … can communicate in English (A2-B1) and German (A2) and are willing to improve your language skills
  • … are interested in graphic design (no previous skills required)
  • … are a ‘community’ person, so someone who loves to bring people together
  • … are someone who is comfortable or wants to become more comfortable with public speaking
  • … enjoys frequently joining different types of events
  • … are a team player but also like to take responsibility and work independently

In short, this project will give you the chance to become a part of our team for 12 months, learn what it’s like to work at an NGO that organises international projects, make an impact in Bremen and develop a variety of skills!
