Volunteer Service Programs
Experiment e.V. offers a variety of volunteer service programs abroad.
European Solidarity Corps (ESC)
Experiment e.V. is an accredited volunteer exchange organisation for this scholarship program fundend by the European Union and has been sending volunteers abroad for the past 20 years. The European Solidarity Corps (ESC) provides full scholarships for young Europeans, who will gain cross-cultural experience, thereby helping to form a common European consciousness by volunteering abroad.
The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development uses "weltwärts" to support developmental voluntary services for participants between 18 and 28. Participants can volunteer for nine to twelve months. The projects have to be accredited by the ministry.
Flexible volunteer service programs
In addition to the funded volunteer service programs, Experiment e.V. organizes flexible volunteer experiences in the following destinations: Africa (Benin, Ghana, Morocco and South Africa), Asia and the Pacific (Australia, India, Nepal, New Zealand and Vietnam), Europe (Ireland, Italy and Spain), North and South America (Argentina, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru).
Demi Pair - The au pair alternative!
In contrast to the traditional one-year au pair program, which is based on a 40-hour work week, our "demi pair" concept limits the time spent working for the host family to 20 hours per week. The remaining time is used to attend a six to twelve-week language course.
Countries: Australia (Brisbane), Canada (Toronto), Ecuador (Quito), Ireland (Dublin), New Zealand (Auckland & Wellington) and UK (Manchester).
