Dear friends of the South-North Volunteer Programme of UEM,
the Call for application for UEMs South-North Volunteer Programme 2017/2018 is now open. Feel free to send us your applications at any time from now on before the end of the deadline on 30 September 2016.
UEM invites all member churches to participate in this Call. Our volunteer programmes are a chance for young people to get to know other cultures, encounter spiritual and church life in a foreign cultural context, and to have the chance to be exposed to and work in an environment different from one’s own. Please note: your applicants are applying for a development voluntary service in Germany in a church-related field, but not in a missionary. Placements might be in youth-centers, in schools, in kindergartens or in organisations with a focus on disabled people, adut education, working with refugees or elderly people.
Attached you find the call for applications for eight available placements in the South-North volunteer programme 2017/2018 for work in Germany. Please distribute this Call among your networks.
Every UEM member church is encouraged to suggest two candidates, preferably one male, one female.
As this programme is meant to support youth empowerment and training among your youth, kindly submit the applications of candidates who are
– active members of your church, ideally in youth leadership roles;
– suitable to take over leadership roles in your church in the future;
– enjoy the full support of your church, expressed by the attached church endorsement.
Applications have to be submitted through UEM member churches, NOT by individual candidates. Every application submitted to UEM should be send in one PDF format (limited to 6 MB) by the church office. The deadline for sending your proposal of candidates toward UEM Officer for South-North Volunteer Programme is 30 September 2016 by the latest. Late applications will not be considered.
We are looking forward to receive your applications.
Thank you for your kind cooperation.
