Not at all! Despite the youthful and kind of informal look of our website, our services and programs are not at all targeted only at students and young people. Indeed, we have participants of all ages.
Social commitment, the interest in other cultures and intercultural learning are not bound to a specific age. The reasons for more mature individuals to participate in our programs might include professional reorientation, a time-out from job, family and everyday life, or the wish to share professional qualifications and life experiences with other people.
We particularly want to encourage older individuals to take part in our programs. Often, older volunteers are particularly useful to the organisations and projects abroad we cooperate with, as with the years come life experience, professional expertise and patience - all valuable skills that are useful for volunteering abroad.
They can also contribute their professional qualifications and their many years of knowledge in the field work quickly and directly, and less induction and familiarization are necessary. Professionals are in great demand. We would like to especially encourage older students to participate in the offered projects and placements .
Accommodation: We understand that older participants often make higher demands on accommodation. Our accommodation options are. We can provide comfortable accommodations, such as hotels, private homes and with host families with boarding of high standard at many locations, that will satisfy even the ones who like to have a bit more comfort and yet are affordable even for longer periods of stay.
