Step into the world of sailing
Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Period: 01/09/2017 – 28/02/2018
Deadline: 26 June 2017
Sail Training Association Netherlands is looking for 4 volunteers from the following countries: Denmark, Estonia, Norway and UK. A project in the center of Amsterdam on our office ‘ship’.
Sail Training Association Netherlands’ main focus is to organise sail training voyages on Tall Ships. These adventures involve the youngsters in every aspect of life on board: from sailing a Tall Ship, to learning about themselves, discovering their talents and maximising their potential. We bring young people from all over Europe together and as a part of our team you will be working in the engine room of this exact goal.
We communicate with Tall Ships, future and past trainees, mentors and the organisations we cooperate with. We update our website and communicate on social media. We work with everything related to Sail Training and often develop new projects. Maybe you have the idea for our next?
As a volunteer, your activities will include mostly a variety of office tasks, depending on your strengths and areas you want to develop. As we are a small organisation, you will be directly involved in the projects. Some example tasks of our current and past volunteers include:
– preparing funding applications,
– coordinating with our project partners,
– finding participants (promotion),
– working with a website,
– communication and social media,
– creating posters, flyers, videos…
– sailing on Tall Ships as a trainee and mentor
