In Mellemfolkeligt Samvirke Aarhus (Action Aid Denmark), we are opening a café that will build bridges between different cultures in Aarhus. To minimize the feeling of loneliness and distance, many of the expats and internationals face every year when arriving to the city.

Our purpose is to provide a strong base for the international community, where people can enjoy themselves over a beer or a cup of coffee. We aim to use our Café to inform the public of MS' actions and projects towards sustainability, equality, human rights and peace around the world.

If this resonates with your personality and motivation, please contact us!

Your primary tasks will be to serve coffee and food (mainly we will have snacks and some pastries), pour beer, keep the bar and tables clean, control the music and serve the guests. 

At MS café we want to create a "feel like home" and for that we expect from our volunteers a good mood and warming attitude.
