Every year, Ribe Ungdomshøjskole accepts 10-15 foreign students and volunteers. They are aged 16-30 and live and go to school at the folk high school. We are looking for one or more local rope holders who will create a good environment for their stay at the folk high school.

We are looking for you who find it exciting to:

  • Have contact with the young people's contact families
  • Have contact with the school
  • Helping young people with practicalities; It can be transportation to and from the airport, good advice or maybe sharing your knowledge of the local area.
  • Be AFS Interkultur's local contact and ambassador

Do you also want to do different activities for the young people and possibly. their contact families while they are in Denmark is a plus. It could be an intercultural dinner, introduction to Danish traditions or excursions in the area - the possibilities are many!

As a volunteer in AFS Interkultur, you create cultural encounters, you gain knowledge about other cultures and you get a unique opportunity to create relationships - both locally and globally. We offer thorough introduction and you are regularly invited to participate in courses where you develop as a volunteer and gain experience and knowledge to coordinate, create intercultural learning and much more

What does it take?

Over a year, you have the opportunity to devote approximately 2 hours per week. In connection with arrival and departure, there is a possibility that it may require a little more hours, however, in most weeks it will require less.
