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!

A section of 400 m of the former fortification system can still be visited today and makes history alive.

Besides, there will be several study parts, such as a two day History Lab at the Marienborn Memorial to German Division.
