We are a small alternative school community based in Lindersvold, Denmark with a integration and inclusion concept that consists of 2 departments.

1) This is a (non-profit) school training young people for international development work in Africa and India.
2) Care Home and Day School places for young adults and teenagers with special needs. Some of them have learning difficulties, ADHD or lack social skills.

This mixed group makes for a lively bunch. We love our place and always work on improvements. Most people live at the school campus and this makes it our home and not just a working place. We have evening programs to add to the atmosphere at our school. We have a strict NO alcohol and NO drug policy and this is a very essential part of our lifestyle at the school.

There are 3 main areas were we really need some help:
1. We need help with online outreach, some computer work in connection to our place.
2. Help at the institution kitchen to help the chef cook lunch and to assist other volunteers to cook other meals
3. Help in the garden and park area... we have a small vegetable garden, a large grass area around the building and a number of apple trees - so there is a lot to do to take care of the garden and keep it looking nice.

The young students with whom we live and work together with have a big need to be around adults with a surplus and therefore you may also join in to play sport with them
So as you can read, the tasks are quite varied and we can fit them around needs and experiences.

You will have a shared room with shared bathroom facilities, shared common room with internet in most parts of the building - we also have a small sports hall and outdoor volleyball field.

We are surrounded by cozy Danish nature, close by is a beautiful fjord, 30 min walk to the sea coast.
There is bus connection to the closest town (7km away) and some students and teachers are regularly drive with school cars, or you can go by bike/walk.
We are not based in town, we are 70 km from Copenhagen, so it's possible to go for a visit, but it takes around 1,5 h by public transport.
