The volunteers will be part of the special fellowship that exists on a Danish Efterskole and Folk High School. As the volunteers are older than the students, they will also be positioned as leaders, persons of authority and consultants, and this is a great opportunity for the ESC volunteers to develop their pedagogical abilities and the ability to structure and plan events for others.
Other tasks the volunteer will take part in:
Planning and carrying out afternoon, evening and weekend activities with the students (music, arts, drama, games, literatur, your language, sports or any other interests that you have)
Developing the work with and support to the students who have different cultural backgrounds. And facilitating a contact group for these students together with one of the teachers
Assisting teachers in the subjects Going Global (preparation for exchanges) and Global Citizenship
Planning and carrying out small and larger projects with students and teachers, like charity projects, educational projects, campaigns ect.
Producing small films and texts for the Eisbjerghus Internationale Efterskole’s social media sites as well as the homepage together with a group of students and the teacher responsible for communication
Taking part in one of the short term exchanges (China, Spain, France, India or Japan); travelling with the group as well as hosting the programme
Practical chores around the school in which students also take part (kitchen, cleaning, maintenance etc.)
Maybe assist teaching in the subjects Global Citizenship and/or Global Perspectives.
