EVS volunteer needed for project in Danish school

August 8, 2012 | In: , ,

EVS project related to activities for Ranum Efterskole is in the process of being approved, but is not yet in the database. It will start in January 2013 and its length is 6 months. Volunteer’s boarding would be at the school.

Ranum Efterskole is a continuation school – a particular Danish school form (pupils in the 9th and the 10th grade – approximately 14-17 years old – the two last grades in the Danish School system before young people attend a gymnasium/high school).

The pupils live at the school for a year, while receiving the same sort of tuition as in the public schools in subjects such as Danish, Maths, English, German/French, Social science, Biology etc. In addition they also have the possibility of participating in e.g. diving classes, sailing classes (our school is located near the big inlet in the North of Denmark), music, horseback riding, dance, martial arts and many more. We have 250 pupils at our school and approximately 50 employees.

At our school all students travel abroad three times a year. We have visited a lot of different countries and cities such as London, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, New York, Nepal, Egypt, Norway and Greece. We finance a small school for young children in Nepal and aim at having an international outlook in most of our activities.
Our staff consists of app. 30 teachers – most of them educated at Danish Teacher’s Colleges – and app. 20 other staff – technicians, janitors, kitchen help, cleaning personnel, administration etc.

Ranum Efterskole is situated in the north of Denmark 3 kilometers from the big inlet, Limfjorden. From the school there is a great view to Vilsted Lake which has good possibilities of canoeing etc. Nearby you can also experience Vitskøl Kloster which is an old abbey. It was founded in ap. 1100.

Our school is based on the idea that students can suggest and help to develop new subjects and courses while staying here. We have a range of subjects that we offer almost every year – sailing, diving, adventure, horseback riding, music, design, dance, media – and then we also have other subjects that have been formed along the way together with students – martial arts, street performance, hell’s kitchen and drama.

The last two years we have also been working hard on our international profile as explained earlier. It is in this respect that we are looking for EVS-volunteers.

Role of volunteers: The volunteers will be part of the special fellowship that exist on a Danish Efterskole. As the volunteers are older than the students they will also be positioned as leaders, authorities and consultants which is a great opportunity to develop pedagogical abilities and to ability to structure and plan events for others.

As all of our students also visit other countries, the most important taks for the volunteer is to create an intercultural environment at the school. This could be done through informal cultural activities, dancing classes, language classes etc. – good ideas are welcome!
The volunteer is highly incouraged to document life at the school and publish the documentation nationally as internationally.

We often have activities in the evening or in the weekend. Often it will be expected of the volunteer to participate in or contribute to these activities. If the volunteer is responsible for the acitvity he or she will of course have another day off, but the volunteer is encouraged to participate in as many activities as possible in order to have a rewarding experience of the stay.
The average working hours will be 6 hours a day excluding Danish classe for the volunteer.

Interested? Send an e-mail with your resume, a letter of motivation and a photo to nanna.simonsen@afs.org until 25th of August 2012.
