Café Paraplyen is an active social house in the town of Frederiksberg.

The house is run by YMCA's Social. The café is alaboration between YMCA Social, Godthaab Sogn (Parish) and Frederiksberg council, and we operate a non-alcoholic social café 7 days a week.

Many Danes volunteer, and you'll have a perfect opportunity to get to know some Danes and practise your Danishuage skills.

We have several volunteer jobs that you can take part in:

  • cooking
  • serving guests at the counter (you´d need to have a certain level of Danish first)
  • guest TLC - " tender loving care" - being a welcoming host to our guests
  • cake / bread baking
  • dishwashing
  • shopping

and other chores such as sweeping the floor inside and ourside, and at the same time socializing with the guests that frequent the house.

A large group of volunteers run the house. Approximately 85 volunteers are connected to the house. 4-7 volonteers are "on duty" at a time, approximately 4-7 hours ( once a week or once a month, or anything in between). 4 employees coordinate the rotas and support the volunteer duties.

Contact us using the 'contact association' or drop by and see the place. Maybe you want to make a arrangement for an interview?

We look forward to hearing from you. is Denmark's leading volunteer job portal.

Volunteering is for everyone - we welcome all applicants regardless of gender, ethnicity, nationality, social background, sexual orientation or religious background.
