Informationen für Teamer

Auch für die Saison 2018 suchen wir wieder viele motivierte CampleiterInnen. Bei Interesse melde dich gern bei Dorit. Unten findest du eine Liste aller Camps, bei denen du dich als CampleiterIn/Teamer bewerben kannst.

Ein internationales Workcamp zu leiten ist eine Chance, sich selbst besser kennenzulernen, mit Menschen aus aller Welt zusammenzuleben, in einem interessanten Projekt zu arbeiten, Organisationstalente zu entwickeln, Sprachkenntnisse zu erweitern und das eigene Land aus einem anderen Blickwinkel kennenzulernen.

Zu deinen Aufgaben als Teamer gehören:

  • Du hilfst den TeilnehmerInnen, sich gegenseitig kennenzulernen und sich im für sie fremden Land zu orientieren.
  • Du unterstützt die Gruppe bei der selbständigen Gestaltung des Zusammenlebens.
  • Du hilfst als Orts- und Sprachkundiger, die Freizeit zu organisieren.
  • Du bist Kontaktperson zwischen TeilnehmerInnen, VJF und Projektpartner.
  • Du verwaltest das Campgeld.
  • Du arbeitest freiwillig, Fahrtkosten zur Vorbereitung und zum Camp werden dir erstattet.

Wir helfen:

  • Wir versuchen, für jedes größere Camp zwei CampleiterInnen einzusetzen.
  • Auch im größten Chaos findest du im VJF-Büro offene Ohren und Hilfe.
  • Es gibt eine Aufwandentschädigung für deinen Einsatz. Frag einfach nach!

VJF 2.5 Sachsenhausen 3     13/08-02/09/18        STUDY/ENVI   15 vols   (noch 1 Campleiter gesucht)

Sachsenhausen was one of the earliest concentration camps in Germany, built in 1936. For example German people who were in opposition to Nazi policy, homosexuals, so-called asocials, criminals, Jews, and during the war especially people from occupied countries were imprisoned, forced to work and a lot of them were murdered.

Between 1945 and 1950 a part of this area was used as a so-called Special Camp of the Soviet Secret Service.

Now it is a place for studies and to commemorate the victims: the memorial site “Gedenkstaette and Museum Sachsenhausen” (“Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen”). Please inform yourself before the camp on this site: http://www.stiftung-bg.de/gums/en/index.htm

Work part: Although the main task will be studies of history, manual work like gardening, maintenance work and cleaning-up of specific areas of the memorial are planned.

Study part: Besides the manual work the study component will be an important part of our project. Volunteers will learn a lot about the time of National Socialism, the Holocaust and also something about the period after World War II especially the Soviet camp Sachsenhausen until 1950. Guided tours in and around the memorial site Sachsenhausen and excursions to different memorials and places of earlier German history are planned. Volunteers will have the opportunity to work in the exhibitions and in the library of the memorial site. Furthermore there will be several discussions with employees who perform guided tours and are involved in historical research. The international volunteers with their different backgrounds will inform the group about the memories and commemoration in their countries.
