The selection process for our new Weltwärts volunteers from Germany was started last Saturday (22/2/14) in Berlin. The selection day was very well prepared by our partner SAGE Net. and took place at the Nelson Mandela School. A lot of volunteers from SAGE Net. and some other host organisations like the VSA as well as former Weltwärts volunteers were involved and made this day a real success.
24 young people were interviewed and took part in a workshop, in which their team work ability and other qualities were tested. Additionally, the applicants were offered a free space, in which they could approach former volunteers and ask them about their experiences.
4 applicants made it into the next round and will be interviewed again by the VSA to further test their knowledge and abilities, before we will choose two of them to join our awarenet team in Grahamstown. We will inform you about our selection as soon as possible.
A huge thank you goes to the SAGE Net. team for their fantastic work and great cooperation!
