It´s charming and spacious buildings house two complementary school forms, a traditional Danish Folk High School and a specialized preparatory school for international students.

The volunteers will be a part of the special fellowship which you find on a folk high school. He/she will participate in our Danish courses, and through the entire stay the staff will help and support the volunteer whenever needed. As some of the students at the school combine their stay with a visit to another country, the most important task 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. To remove The volunteer will also work with our IT manager and the students in order to create a computer environment which meets the individual cultural requirements of the students. This doesn’t exist anymore There are two volunteers at any one time. They collaborate with staff, teachers and students on different projects. For example assisting teachers to make lights on a show or help students to record a video or take pictures. The volunteers’ primary task is to document the daily life at the school and publish the documentation nationally as well as internationally through social media (blog, facebook…) including video and pictures. They will record events such as trips, come together day and shows and edit them. They will also work in graphic design such as making posters and flyers for events. There will be plenty of opportunity for new initiatives and for the volunteers to create their own activities. If the volunteer has specific creative skills he/she will also be very welcome to create practical projects using those skills. As the program is quite intensive, there are often activities at the High School in the weekends. If the volunteer works during the weekend, he will have time off at another time during the week. The average working hours per day will be about 6 hours. The volunteer will have Danish lesson (5 hours per week) he can follow either at the school with the Global Base Camp or at the language center in Fredericia. Lodging and boarding: The volunteer will be lodged at the high school where he/she will either have his/her own room or share a room with another volunteer. There will be shared toilet and bath facilities. The local AFS chapter will arrange a contact person for the volunteer. He will eat at the school together with the students and the staff.
The volunteer must be mature, open-minded and able to work based on his/her own initiative. We would prefer a person with a good command of spoken and written English language. Volunteers with a good knowledge of computer technology and communication such as video, photography, editing and sound will be preferred, but other cultural skills will be important assets. Volunteers with an interest in globalization are also welcome.
