The GAP Activity Projects Ltd. in cooperation with the ZAV (Zentralstelle für Arbeitsvermittlung) in Frankfurt offers a Volunteer programme for young Germans who have just taken their Abitur or who are students in their early semesters.
The programme has the aim of helping young Germans to get to know Great Britain by living and working with British people and so developing their own personalities. All the experience gained will be through social sector placements (Art Praktikumsstellen), e.g. homes for disabled people, independent living projects or helping at a school as a care assistant. Applicants should be prepared to work hard for just pocket money, be willing to communicate easily and be able to adapt quickly and to avoid unnecessary difficulties.
