BOOKworkshop in BOOKkindergarten

BOOKworkshop in BOOKkindergarten

Leipzig, Germany

1 , Closed

Project description

The “BuchKindergarten” (BookKindergarten) is situated in the alternative quarter of Leipzig called Lindenau. The concept of the kindergarten is based on many years of cultural and pedagogical experiences with ”book-work” with children. The volunteer has the option to gain an intensive insight into a nationwide unique educational concept. The volunteer will be introduced to the specific work of the Buchkindergarten during a weekend seminar. We will make sure that the tasks for the volunteers correspond to their specific skills and abilities. Possible tasks: - assisting in the book production workshop and learning the ways of the book production handicraft - assistance and guidance of the children realizing their ideas for their books - assisting the production of books - collaborating to produce posters, postcards, flyers etc. - assisting the editing of the homepage for the kindergarten - organizing events for children


Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

Normally all the volunteers are living in shared flats, have their own room - but share a kitchen and a bathroom with 3 other volunteers. Food money will be paid out to you as well as money to buy the local transportation monthly ticket or you just buy a bike. Leipzig is a very nice city to ride a bike. If you wish we can as well try to organize a host family.


Training during the project

We will help you to find a German language course which fits your needs and level. The volunteer will attend also two seminars (on-arrival and mid-term) organized by the German National Agency, that will be a great opportunity to meet other volunteers volunteering in Germany during this year.


Volunteer profile

Good German knowledge (at least B1) Interest in work with children Creativity and a mind full of new ideas Interest in Do IT Yourself approach (as the volunteer will help the children to create their own books)
