Kindervereinigung Leipzig e. V.
Location: Leipzig, Germany
Period: 01/09/2017 – 31/08/2018
Deadline: 9 April 2017
We are looking for cheerful, open-minded volunteers with good organisation skills who like working in international projects and with young people.
Kindervereinigung Leipzig e.V. (KVL) is an organisation for child and youth service. Kindervereinigung runs 10 children day-care centers, takes care of 25 daymothers, carries out school social work at almost 20 schools as well as school clubs at 8 schools in Leipzig and surrounding. In addition, KVL has 13 open clubs for youth and projects and organizes holiday activities for children and teenagers. KVL currently employs around 230 full-time staff. The work of the association is supported by about 100 volunteer workers including Bufdis (german volunteer service).
The volunteer can contribute to various projects in our house. It is expected that he/she will have about 50% of the time working in our International Youth Work projects. Depending on volunteer’s abilities, the main focus can be on public relations, on the organization of international youth encounters or the concrete work with the young people. In addition, the volunteer can choose which other projects in our house he/she wants to support:
The volunteer can learn about
– how to organize international youth projects
– open youth work with the “Spielmobil”: creative games and sportive activities with kids organized with two busses, often in nature/different quarters of Leipzig
– cultural youth education.
If the volunteer is interested in the prevention work concerning sects/cults/extremist group and speaks sufficiently good German, he/she can also support this working area. The working areas should be defined together at the beginning of the volunteer service. Approximately half of the deployment time would be in any case in the area of international youth work.
