Purpose of the project: Our Organisation, the YMCA Kodersdorf e.V. is a small Christian organization in Kodersdorf, near Görlitz. We are running a school club at the local school with students aged between 10 to 16 years. Our purpose is to create a place for students where they are enabled to be themselves and to grow in their personalities and talents. Further, we want to meet them with God´s love and give them the opportunity to get to know Christianity. Our work has different areas: sports, playing games, music, spending time with the students but also organization and logistics. The school club includes a small café opened during breaks and after lessons partly up to the evening. Every Friday we meet to do some more sports, cook and have dinner and devotion together. Usually, your working time will be from 8.30 am to 4 pm (Fridays from 11.00 to 8 pm) and will include a few weekends during the year.
