The Danish ICYE (International Cultural Youth Exchange) is a non-profit exchange organization where the activities are largely organized and organized by good volunteers. We send both Danish young people, primarily between 16-30 years, into the world on exchange and volunteer work and receive foreign volunteers to Denmark. The idea is that young people from all over the world should have the opportunity to travel and meet new cultures.

Restaurant Intercult comes into play in connection with 4 annual camps, which are held by Danish ICYE. Everyone who travels on our exchange programs, attends a preparation camp and then a homecoming camp. Also, the foreign volunteers attend these camps, to receive an introduction to Denmark and evaluate their stay along the way.

As a member of Restaurant Intercult will also be responsible for the care of the camps. Together with the committee, you will help determine what we will serve, order items, and then prepare the food at the camps. In the kitchen we have room for everyone, we are ambitious and have the free framework to make delicious dishes that kick our legs away from the tenant's participants. Most often we have between 40 and 80 participants who eat with. We are responsible for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and cakes so there is plenty to look forward to. We enjoy the kitchen most of the day with good music, nice conversations and a glass of red wine or two. While the food is simmering, boiling, roasting or during the breaks we get during the days, there is ample opportunity to go for a walk or have a game of Bezzerwisser with a cup of coffee.

We are seeking a volunteer for Restaurant Intercult as:

  • Have the courage to be part of a team of good, happy volunteers
  • Have a passion for cooking
  • Have an interest in planning
  • Want to meet new young people from all over the world
  • Want to try your hand at recipes from around the world
  • Can set aside between 1 and 4 weekends a year, as well as 4-6 Skype meetings for volunteering

We offer:

  • Many exciting experiences and the opportunity to get to know new people
  • Experience in organizing, planning and operating a large kitchen
  • Experience writing food plans for larger assemblies
  • Great influence and room for your initiatives
  • A lot of responsibility, depending on your commitment and desire
  • Opportunity to participate in a lot of exciting events locally as well as nationally, such as courses for competency development within project management and organizational development etc.
  • A fantastic community across the country

You can join Restaurant Intercult, whether you have traveled with Danish ICYE or not. The most important thing is that you want to be part of the community and that you want to put in a little work to create a good dining experience for the participants at the camps. We should give you a good introduction to it all, so you are well dressed before you throw yourself into it.

Since restaurant intercult is a committee under Danish ICYE, it is a requirement that you become a member of the organization, which costs DKK 75 per. calendar year.

If you are interested, please contact us via the form 'contact the organization'.

We look forward to hearing from you.
