All volunteers in CGE are accommodated in a comfortable, fully equipped shared flat, located 5 min away from the city center. The food allowance is given to the volunteers every month, based on the ESC regulations. A volunteer is provided with a local transportation ticket. Mentor support is provided by former ESC volunteers, as well as ex-colleagues. 


Learning by doing is a core principle of CGE’s work culture. High emphasis is put on teamwork and co-creation during the conceptualization and implementation of activities. The volunteers are assigned to project teams and support activities in various stages. Throughout the year, the volunteers will be able to attend external local, and national training to boost their skills and competencies.  


We are looking for one person to join the team with a background in social sciences or management, preferably with experience in non-formal education (Erasmus+, international mobilities) or community building. The volunteer is expected to support the team in conceptualizing, preparing, and implementing local actions, data collection, and working with stakeholders and target groups (youth, migrant, and rural communities). This is an opportunity to collect professional and personal experiences, by supporting project managers and building solidarity at the local, EU, and global levels.
