The European Solidarity Corps invites volunteers from Eastern Partner countries to join the Kindergruppe Giraffenland team in Vienna, Austria, during 48 weeks from 1 September, 2022, to 31 July, 2023.
This Austrian group is looking for a volunteer to interact with the children (aged two and a half to six) and provide a valuable cultural exchange. With guidance from experienced child caretakers, the volunteer will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of the pedagogical concepts developed by Maria Montessori and Emmi Pikler, and to learn about non-violent communication.
Through regular excursions with the group, the volunteer will also have the opportunity to get to know Vienna and the surrounding countryside.
You will receive pocket money, a monthly food allowance, and a ticket for public transport in Vienna. You will stay in a single room at a flat or student dorm, sharing facilities like kitchen and bathroom with others.
The deadline for applications is 18 April.
