Description if the Project

Midtjysk efterskole is a boarding school located in the little town of Ejstrupholm, which is easily accessible by bus with connections to the train both to Aarhus, the 2nd biggest city in Denmark, and Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark.

We currently have room for 134 students, with a fair balance between girls and boys. The students live and study at the school for one year only and are expected to participate in this small community. Teamwork will be essential, since they will live, work, clean and eat together at the school. Any volunteer is expected to also play a vital role in this community and quickly develop a personal, yet professional, relationship to the students.
