Brenderup, Danimarca

da agosto 2021 a luglio 2022

Organizzazione ospitante

The folk high school is placed in Brenderup – a small village with a couple of groceries, schools and sport facilities. Brenderup is close to both beach and forest which often is used for activities. The type of activities depends on the season, but examples could be going to the beach for a swim or touring on the school bikes.

Brenderup Folk High School is a contemporary Danish folk high school. The students are primarily between 18 and 25 years old. At Brenderup Folk High School we believe that a precondition for peaceful coexistence in the world is the unbiased interaction of people from different cultural backgrounds.
Brenderup Folk Highschool is working with sustainability as a main profile and the volonteers will be involved with the activities connected to that.

Brenderup Folk High School offers an exchange of life experience, ideas and viewpoints among people from different cultures, building on responsibility to the community and respect for the individual.

The volunteers will have the opportunity to be a part of the unique fellowship you find on a folk high school.

To learn more please look at Brenderup Højskole’s web page.


The different work areas for the volunteers:

  • Facilitating leisure activities for the students. 
  • Participation in all of the arrangements and events run by the school and connected associations.
  • Every Sunday one of the volunteers will help the teacher with planning student activities, coordinating the meals, making sure that kitchen and weekend duties are done by the students and if needed welcoming guests at the school. The teacher who is responsible for the weekend will always be back up.
  • During our short term summer courses the tasks will also include service jobs like running a small bar, cleaning and assisting teachers in various activities

Other tasks depending on the volunteers´ interests and skills:

  • Practical work, such as maintenance of our buildings and garden.
  • Office work (making brochures, taking photos/videos, updating social medias etc.)
  • Facilitating intercultural activities.
  • Facilitating sport activities.
  • Facilitating various workshops.
  • The volunteers might have opportunities to assist the teachers in the subjects of   which the volunteer has knowledge. 

It is important to be aware that the tasks can vary through the year depending on our different courses and activities.

Please state in your application which of the work areas you would prefer to work with and why.

Brenderup Højskole has a partnership with AFS Interkultur Denmark, who will administer the grant – including the volunteer allowance to be given to the volunteers during the programme.

AFS Interkultur will make sure that the volunteer gets a supervisor/contact person at the project and a mentor/contact person outside of the project. This contact person will help the volunteer to integrate into the Danish local community and support the volunteer with every matter related to the stay of the volunteer.  AFS also helps the volunteer become part of the overall volunteer network in Denmark.

Both AFS Interkultur and Brenderup Højskole will assist volunteers with the administative paperwork related to arriving in Denmark. Brenderup Højskole as the hosting school will provide accommodation and three meals a day to the volunteer.
