November 26, 2012 | In: , , ,

The association Offene Jugendarbeit Dornbirn (OJAD) – Open Youth Work Dornbirn2010-AT-34 – is  looking for one volunteer to start 1st of October 2013 to 30th of June 2014. Application deadline for volunteers: 7th of January 2013.


Project environment: The association is located in Dornbirn which has 45.000 inhabitants and is Vorarlberg’s biggest town. Vorarlberg is the westernmost province of Austria, close to the borders to Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany. OJAD offers young people space for leisure time activities and also provides services in the field of education and youth employment. The team runs two youth centres, two big projects on the topic of education (Albatros – Hauptschulabschluss: Courses for early school leavers) and employment (Job Ahoi!: Job insertion project with manual workshops), and a skateboarding area.  The target group of OJAD are young people between 13 and 20 years of Austrian and of migrant (mainly Turkish) origin.


Tasks: The areas that the volunteer can participate are:
– Kulturcafé Schlachthaus: Here he/she can help organise parties and youth culture events (concerts etc.) that take place about twice a week. He/She will learn to book concerts, organise everything around concerts (for example Gothic, Punk, Hardcore, EMO, Metal, Alternative-Indie, Hip-Hop etc.), do the bar during different events, care for the bands, care for the young people that visit our house.
– Youthcafé Vismut: Our visitors at the youthcafé Vismut are a little younger (13 – 16) and come to the centre for a chat with other youngsters or with the youth worker or for workshops (for example Turkish musical instrument, dance, skateboarding). The Vismut is open Monday to Saturday in the morning or in the afternoon/evening if there are events. The volunteer will help with the workshops and in the café (bar, preparing snacks, cleaning etc.)
– Youthcafé Arena: Youth Café Arena is open every day in the afternoon or evening. One day it is reserved for “Girls only”. It also offers space to meet informally for a chat with friends. The focus of activities is sports: Tabletop football, basketball and skateboarding are sports that the visitors can do for example. There is a skateboarding rank nearby.
Youth employment project “Job Ahoi!”: In this project young unemployed people can work on a day-to-day basis in a boat repair and in a bag design workshop. If the volunteer is interested he/she can participate in these projects, for example with his/her boatbuilding, tailoring or other manual skills. He/She can also participate in the activities that we organise in the course of the year, for example: – Youth Festival on the Dornbirn Fair (April) – Visit of Romanian dance group (April) – Anti Racism Days (April) – Environment Week (May) – Nobel Hobel Ball (Carneval) – Skateboarding rank opening – Art Designs Promotion Days (autumn) – Youth Exchange (June or July) – Skiing Days (Winter)
Volunteer’s Own Project: If the volunteer wants he/she can realise his/her own project with the young people.


Selection criteria: He/She should like to work with young people and should be interested in different youth cultures, music, night life and youth centre work. He/She should care for young people and be prepared to take the initiative to get in contact with them. He/she should be flexible and be willing to take part in different kinds of projects. Since our opening hours are mainly in the afternoons, evenings and on weekends he/she should be prepared to work late hours and work on weekends as well. Of course, he/she will not work every weekend and will have two consecutive days off during the week if working on the weekend.
