Urgent: in March to Denmark for European Solidarity Corps volunteering

Hertha Levefællesskab is a living community of people with and without disabilities in a village called Herskind in Denmark. Now, the community is looking for a young person for European Solidarity Corps volunteering. Maybe you?

Hertha is looking for an 18–30-year-old person for European Solidarity Corps volunteering for the period 1st March 2023 – 28th February 2024 (12 months). It’s also possible to begin the volunteering year earlier if it suits the volunteer.

The main activity for the volunteer will be to support the residents in the workshops, according to their interests and specific knowledge and experiences.

You can learn more about Hertha and the role and tasks of the volunteer on the website of the coordinating organization of the project, Dansk ICYE. Due to the tight schedule, the position is for a volunteer who doesn’t need a visa to travel to Denmark.
