We are a diverse and international school centre with young people and adults from many countries. It is situated outside of the small town Ulfborg, in the Midwest of Jutland.

The school centre consists of a number of schools. An alternative teacher training college. A boarding school for a mix of young adults - both with social and learning difficulties - and with surplus. And also an institution for adults who need special care. In total over 100 students and teachers are based here.

We are also working in different ways with becoming self sufficient with food and energy. We grow a big part of our own vegetables, and we are the proud home of the once biggest wind-turbine in the world, built by students and teachers almost 40 years ago. In addition to this we have also recently got solar energy, and we are working with developing other projects for prevention of climate changes.

We have many possibilities and facilities for sports and creative activities, such as a sports hall, a climbing wall, fitness centre, horses, football and beach volley field. During the year we are host for a number of big cultural events with many guests coming to do sports, play theatre and listen to classical music.

We also have not less than 3 hot-air balloons, but only one pilot. So for those who are very eager, it can be a possibility to join our ballooning team, who once in a while when the weather is good, take people flying around our local area.

So as you can see, as a volunteer here, in addition to the "work" there are many possibilities for involving yourself in activities you enjoy and we are also always happy for people taking initiatives to start new activities.
