Eurowerkstatt has built up a big network of hosting projects for ESC volunteers in Jena. We coordinate the application process, the prearrangements 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 organise 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.
Currently, all our volunteering positions are taken until the end of August 2021. But our next ESC project will start on the 1st of September 2021 and you can send us your applications until the 11th of April 🙂
Applicants from Spain, please note: Three of our hosting projects definitely want to work together with volunteers from Spain: Montessori-Kindergarten, Jenaplan-Kindergarten and Iberoamérica. So in order to have volunteers from as many countries as possible in the whole group, we can only accept applications from Spain for these three projects.
Applicants from Turkey, please note: One of our hosting projects definitely wants to work together with a volunteer from Turkey: polaris. So please only apply for this project, thank you!
