Schonungen is a little town, next to Schweinfurt. You can reach bigger cities like Würzburg or Bamberg with a train (around 1 hour). The volunteers from Levi e.V. and Förderzentrum will share a flat in the middle of the town.
February 2016 – July 2016
It is a youth house with many cultural events (concerts, theatre, vegan food, festivals) as well as regular workshops: pottering, fotogrtaphy, dance etc.
There are events and training opportunities for young people, young and adults who still feel young.
In the area of events, the volunteers act and find ideal conditions for carrying out the concerts, lectures and film evenings. In the theater area the pupils and student groups can decide by themselves which pieces they like to perform but they can receive the organizational support by the management of the house. There are three workshop-rooms: the photo processing laboratory, the video studio and pottery, which can be used during the opening times after a course or as an introductory visit seperately. In other rooms there are offers from the fields of dance, theater and sports. Since the closure of the open area, the Cairo has a total of three stages for rehearsals and performances.
These areas of responsibility are very versatile and can be shaped by the skills and abilities of the / the volunteer with.
Add to this the parent working fields Public Relations, Social Management, teamwork, administration, team work, legal bases and cooperation with numerous social and cultural institutions.
The / volunteer is involved in all areas of work and accepts autonomously tasks in the house, accompanied by a regularly scheduled instruction.
