Organising and leading an international Workcamp is an interesting challenge for those who enjoy
working together with young people from all over the world and which are willing to take over
For young and older people more interested in the technical side of the works than in the organisation
of the social life Open Houses offers the possibility to support the technical leading of Workcamps and
Building Weeks in the framework of Mid Term Volunteering. This could be an interesting task for those
which have own manual experiences and interest in activities related with the environment or for those
which want to train their organisational skills.
The leading of the technical side of the Workcamps lies in the hands of one of Open Houses' technical
leaders. The volunteer who supports him can overtake a part of the technical leaders' responsibility.
Depending on the wishes, the skills and the experience of the volunteer this can be the organisation of
the schedule of the working day, the responsibility for tools and material, the leading of a smaller group
of volunteers or more special tasks.
For students of architecture, building engineering and similar fields this kind of voluntary service can
be recognized as internship for their studies. Open Houses will offer the necessary certificates. For
each camp leading of two weeks the volunteer receives a 150 € allowance. S/he does not have to pay
for food and accommodation and can take part in all cultural activities and excursions of the camps.
After two or three camps, is highly recommended that the volunteer takes a break. S/he have the right
to stay as a participant in a project. In that case, the food, accommodation and insurance is covered but
the volunteer will not receive allowance.
