What about the rest of the year?
The time between the camps and before the first camp starts will be for camp preparation, advertising, and teambuilding. So we’re in charge of some Christian youth groups, some regular school programs, English lessons in the schools… We’re also going to support the YMCA during bigger events. Additionally, you will have around 30 seminar days for the incoming in Germany, your role as a volunteer, culture… And you will have 27,5 days off during the year. As you can see this year is very diverse and you can be excited.

What about the financial issues?
The YMCA Bavaria will cover the flight costs as well as acommodation. For your personal use and your food you will recieve a „pocket money“ round about 450€ monthly.

Who can apply?
