There are a lot of great NGOs out there that are doing meaningful work in our society, yet very few people are informed about what they do or take part in the activities they organize. At the same time social media has become one of the most influential sources of information of today. Young people are constantly looking for opportunities to volunteer and contribute to society where they can develop their abilities while experiencing new things. The goal of this project is to provide volunteers to the NGOs which will share their cool projects and interesting stories to as many people possible. With this approach we expect young people to become more informed and involved in their local and regional communities.
This particular opportunity is being hosted by NaturKultur e.V. More about our team you can find out here.
We are a youth mobility provider that is focused on international youth work. We organize between 8-10 Youth Exchanges and 2-3 training courses per year, and we are sending young people on many international projects abroad. We are also the coordinating organization for volunteering opportunities. Our office is located in Bremen, but we organize our projects in our KulturHaus in Garlstedt, which is close to Osterholz-Scharmbeck and 30 min by car from Bremen.
Our local and international projects aim to encourage and support young people through non-formal learning opportunities, especially focusing on the topics of interculturalism, tolerance, diversity and understanding among the different cultures in Europe. We are also organizing local events in Bremen and extending our network in the area by cooperating with other organizations and institutions.
You will be accommodated in a house just for ESC volunteers in Bremen, where you will have your own room.
Bremen is a city in North-West Germany (around 500.000 inhabitants), close to Hamburg, the border with Netherlands and the North Sea coast. Bremen is a vibrant, multi-cultural city with a lot of young people and both a historical center, modern and cultural areas.
As an ESC volunteer, you will receive health insurance, 150€ monthly pocket money, 246€ for living expenses. Travel costs will be reimbursed in the amount of 275€.
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!
In short, this ESC project will give you the opportunity to learn and gain experience in a new professional environment, to develop your self-awareness and knowledge about people with different backgrounds, to learn more about a new culture and language, and to find your strengths and interests in an unforgettable, unique 12 months in Bremen!
