Description of the project
The school is located in the little town of Ejstrupholm and the school is easily accessed by bus with links 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 at our school with fairly equal balance between girls and boys and the students live and study at the school for one year only.
The students are living away from home for the best part of a year and are expected to participate in a small community, where teamwork is very important considering that the students live, work, clean and eat together at the school. Any volunteer would be expected to also play a vital role in this community and quickly develop a personal, yet professional relationship to the students.
