We buy and throw away in great style and the Danes spend less and less money every year to repair. But why throw things out when it is usually small repairs that give things a longer life? Now you can help reduce over-consumption and waste.

We want to make a repair cafe with, for example, a monthly opening night, where Åbyhøj's citizens can have their effects repaired free of charge, provided that they deliver the pieces themselves. This is usually about repairing power tools, lamps, clothes, children's toys, mechanical cases, simple electronics and more.

We are therefore looking for you who have expertise in the above and want to share this knowledge and experience with others and become a "fixer". At the same time, we are looking for you who thought it might be fun to try coordination. As coordinator

The café starts from scratch, so it is important that you think it would be fun to help establish something new with other volunteers. This goes from making a room clear, useful and cozy to the café, to becoming part of a whole new volunteer group. The new volunteer group will receive consultancy support from AL2bolig, which, in collaboration with the local residents, helps to start the Repair Café.

In the role of coordinator, you must cooperate with Repair Café's initiator.

As a coordinator, you are expected to:

  • liked to coordinate and take responsibility
  • contact new volunteers and introduce them to the work in the Repair Café
  • could get in the Repair Café 1-2 times a month
  • want to put some extra energy into getting the project up - eg make a PR strategy in collaboration with AL2bolig's consultant
  • arrange and hold meetings for the volunteers approx. Twice a year focusing on social cohesion
  • want to be part of a voluntary community

You get:

  • a great addition to your resume and skills in volunteering, project management, communication and coordination
  • knowledge of motivation and leadership of volunteers
  • support from AL2bolig's consultant
  • the opportunity to make a difference for the environment, climate and your local area
  • a great volunteer community

We are looking forward to hear from you.
