Spjald SFO

Spjald, Denmark

1 , Closed

Project description

The volunteer will be part of the daily life in the SFO. This means that you will have time in the SFO and in the teaching at the school. The volunteer position offers the volunteer the opportunity to learn about Danish SFO’s and the ideas and philosophy the activities was build on. As the Danish educational system is moving towards more focus on physical activities as part of the development of the child, the volunteer will also be part of this. As Spjald is a small town, the volunteer will also learn about life conditions in the Danish countryside. The volunteer will be expected to take part in our daily life and the existing activities and traditions of the institution, but he/she will also have the opportunity to contribute with new projects and activities. We would also like the volunteer to share his/her country’s traditions with the children and thus give them an insight in another culture. The activities will be adjusted according to the volunteer’s wishes and interests.


Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The EVS volunteer will stay in a host family and be provited with three meals per day. It might happen that lunch will be provided at the project. The volunteer will have to use the public transport and maybe a bike sometimes.


Volunteer profile

We prefer a volunteer who has a background with childcaring. And that the volunteer has the ability to interact with the children in a good and meaningful way. The volunteer should be interested in working with children, and interested in the development of children. The volunteer should be open minded and able to speak English on a conversational level.
