Accompaniment and Support

Seminars

Five seminars are connected to the volunteer programme: A preparation seminar one month before leaving the home country, an arrival seminar in Germany, a mid-term seminar to reflect about the first half of the service, another seminar shortly before returning and finally a reviewing seminar about going through the year again. Seminars taking place in the partner countries are conducted by local partner organizations. By transferring this competence to local structures in sending countries we want to avoid that selection and preparation of the volunteers is done from a Western perspective.
