Aims & objectives

The goal is to encourage and empower 20 young people from different backgrounds and cultures to have a enriching living and learning experience here in Germany. Most of them stay for 10-12 months and are usually since 6-10 weeks in their hosting organizations.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

We had participants of 12 nations on the seminar.

Training methods used & main activities

Plenary and Group work
Workshops (partly moderated, partly self directed and simply accompanied by one of us)
Outdoor- and Indoor Team-bounds

Outcomes of the activity

The group grew together and felt very much encouraged to go on with their volunteering services here in Germany.
