Eurowerkstatt has built up a big network of hosting projects in Jena.

We coordinate the application process, the prearrangement and the mentoring of the volunteers. Our hosting projects are mainly active in the field of child and youth welfare or international youth work. The volunteers are involved in the daily work in kindergartens, youth centers or a sports club and get the chance to plan and organize their own projects. This gives you the opportunity to bring your culture closer not only to local children and young people but also to your new colleagues.

Two of our projects are still looking for their next volunteers, starting from September 2019!
You can contact us and still apply for Jenaplangindergarten (kindergarden) and Kindersprachbrücke (kindergarden-section).
