Through The European Solidarity Corps, Gimle hosts 5 volunteers for a 12 month period starting from August/September or January. The volunteers' task is to run Gimle's Café day by day, help in the kitchen and assist with Gimle's other events. During their stay they learn Danish, work on personal projects and are a big part of the Gimle family. The European volunteers live together in a house in Roskilde. Read more about our project here.
What is The European Solidarity Corps
The European Solidarity Corps aims to foster solidarity in the European society, engaging young people and organisations in accessible and high-quality solidarity activities. It offers young people opportunities to show solidarity, express their commitment to the benefit of communities and help resolve challenging situations across Europe. At the same time, these young people have the opportunity to develop their skills and get some invaluable human experience in the process. The European Solidarity Corps builds on the achievements of more than 25 years of European programmes in the fields of volunteering and youth, especially on the experience of the European Voluntary Service.
If you’re interested in being at part of The European Solidarity Corps at Gimle or if you have questions about the project please contact Maria Grongstad.
The current European volunteers are: Sarah (20) from Germany, Maarten (24) from The Netherlands, Anxo (25) from Spain, Marlen (24) from Estonia and Angelika (19) from Austria.
