Around the world with skate-aid

There are two possibilities of voluntary service: with “weltwärts” in cooperation with “Eine Welt Netz NRW” and under private law directly with skate-aid.

With „weltwärts“ to our projects

“weltwärts” is the developmental volunteer service of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and is organized by “Eine Welt Netz NRW“. It’s a learning program for young people between 18 and 28 years who will work for 12 month at the projects. It concentrates on the idea of intercultural exchange and global learning. The young adults pass through an extensive selection progress and will be prepared intensively in seminars for their upcoming tasks. Applications have to be submitted every year until November 15. Selections will be in January and the stay starts in August and takes 12 month.

Under private law

These are deployment locations that are not supported by official institutions. Never the less we do need support for these projects. In these cases, we’re sending the volunteers under private law.

For the project in Syria, we are looking for applicants from the age of 23 who can skateboard and who are interested in helping out with our project partner, the SOS Children's Villages. Good English skills and the interest to learn Arabic should be there. The volunteers will primarily organize the skateboard workshops. As the volunteer works in a country whose political situation can change rapidly, it should be explicitly stated that volunteering in this country may involve risks.
