Organizzazione ospitante

Ranum Efterskole College is situated in the north of Denmark 3 kilometers from the big inlet, Limfjorden. From the school there is a great view to Vilsted Lake which has good possibilities of canoeing etc.

The school has old beautiful buildings and good possibilities of a varied range of leisure activities. The students either complete their 9th or 10th grade at the school.
The school is based on the idea that students can suggest and help to develop new subjects and courses while staying here. There is a range of subjects that is offered almost every year – sailing, diving, adventure, horseback riding, music, design, dance, media – and other subjects that have been formed along the way together with students – martial arts, street performance, hell’s kitchen and drama.

The last couple years Ranum Efterskole College has strengthened its international profile in various ways – offering a full range of IGCSE Cambridge topics to our students, making partnership agreements with schools all over the world and by travelling with our students three times a year.  As a volunteer you will be part of our international atmosphere and contribute to it.


The volunteers will be part of the special fellowship that exists on a Danish Efterskole. As the volunteers are older than the students they will also be positioned as leaders, authorities and consultants which is a great opportunity to develop pedagogical abilities and the ability to structure and plan events for others.

As all of the students also visit other countries, the most important tasks for the volunteer is to create an intercultural environment at the school. This could be done through informal cultural activities, dancing classes, language classes etc. – good ideas are welcome!

There are often activities in the evening or in the weekend. Often it will be expected of the volunteer to participate in or contribute to these activities. If the volunteer is responsible for the activity he or she will of course have another day off, but the volunteer is encouraged to participate in as many activities as possible in order to have a rewarding experience of the stay.

The average working hours will be 6 hours a day excluding Danish classes for the volunteer. An important outcome of the stay is also that students develop their social and personal skills so they are ready to continue their studies and an independent adult life after their stay.
