To a large extent, the volunteer will be involved in information events held by the local chapters or regional groups as well as the organisation and execution of seminars and trainings organised by the staff members and the national volunteers with the focal point on intercultural learning in the various AFS programs and volunteer programme.
While hosting an volunteer at the AFS office, we will demonstrate and emphasise the aspects of European awareness to our participants as well as to our national volunteers.
He/she will have the opportunity to develop own initiatives in which the staff will encourage him/ her to use this opportunity in order to gain self-confidence and to develop tools for setting up own initiatives concerning active European citizenship and awareness as well as issues related to international development policy and global/intercultural learning. According to his/ her interest and ability we invite the volunteer to contribute with his/ her own creativity, for example He/she could show the traditions and culture of his/ her country, also giving insights on the language, cultural differences and daily live traditions etc.
He/she will have the possibility to take part in the preparation, implementation and post processing of such activities mentioned above and thus get to know the different steps that are necessary for realising such projects (for example how to a present or how to communicate within international working groups etc.). Further tasks will also be to collect materials and information about the outcome of the activity and prepare partly the report of the seminar with the help and support of the staff members and national volunteers. On the numerous events and seminars, the volunteer will be in profound contact with the respective local communities.
The volunteer will gain a comprehensive insight in all different working fields of the AFS office. He/she will get to know the working tasks through guidance and support of the staff. The volunteer will get the opportunity to get involved in various aspects of AFS's activities and thus through the focal point on intercultural learning get lively ideas on European awareness and citizenship.
