The tasks the kulturweit volunteers from Germany are performing for the next six to twelve months are extremely multifaceted. They differ depending on the requirements at the assignment location and personal qualification of the volunteer. The tasks include offering assistance during German class in a partner school, organising cultural events at the Goethe-Institut or public relations work in an information centre of the German Academic Exchange Service.
Over the course of his/her voluntary service, all volunteers work through a project cycle, starting with smaller seminar projects during the preparatory seminar, over his/her own project in the host country, all the way to the final presentation of the project during the follow up seminar. Volunteers coordinate their project ideas, which should be a result of their field of activity, with their assignment location, to ensure a smooth integration into the process and structures of their assignment.
The majority of institutions recruiting volunteers for their voluntary service belong to the network of partner organisations abroad within Germany’s cultural relations and education policy.
