Ecole d’Humanité spirit & renovation work (Hasliberg BE)
Description: “Ecole d'Humanité” is located in an alpine village between Interlaken and Lucerne. Surrounded by awe-inspiring peaks, the international village for living, learning, and growing is home to students and adults from around 20 different countries. During the workcamp, you will support the maintenance team of the Ecole d'Humanité in preparing the school for the next school year.
Type of Work: Light handicraft work such as painting walls or furniture in our school rooms and other areas of our campus. You may also be asked to do repair work. The work will be done individually or in small groups. No previous work experience in the field of handicraft is needed for these tasks. You will be introduced to the tasks by an experienced teacher. Therefore, you can expect to learn something new!
Study Theme: A former school director or a very informed alumnus or alumna will talk about the rich history of our school. In the early 20th century, the founders of our school had to flee the Nazis and came to Switzerland. Students of different cultural background should live, learn and love together in order to increase intercultural understanding. Their educational ideas were radical at that time but the founders succeeded in organizing the necessary support. Much of the founding vision is still alive today and the school has remained a value-based community.
Accommodation: Volunteers will live in simple double rooms with shared toilets and showers. Volunteers can use the laundry machines. There will be WIFI for volunteers. Use of cell phones will be limited (not during lunch and program time for ex.) based on the school philosophy and culture. Every day, two volunteers will be responsible for preparing the food.
Language: Local language is Swiss German.
Notes: At first there was another project planned at the same time in the same place. As this plan didn’t work out, we changed the project. This text is the final project description. In order to keep the confusion to a minimum, we kept the topic "Children and Youth" as this defines the camp code and at least the work you do is profitable for children even if there is no direct contact with children during the project.
89 Projects available today!
Promoted camp: Switzerland
This is a new camp and we hope to find many volunteers! It can happen anyway also in case it would be less than 10 volunteers.
