Volunteers are requested to help with the renovation and maintenance of the facilities both indoors and outdoors. In general, it is mainly about doing gardening and renovation work.
Within the scope of garden design, we want to build a wild bee hotel in cooperation with regional beekeepers as well as the repair and extension of our small nature path.
The maintenance (inside) includes the annually recurring tasks of painting the premises as well as small repairs.
The maintenance (exterior/facade) has the same scope and is intended to provide a painting ground for the future design of the facade, which we want to create with children. We endeavour to support all tasks with professionals.

Berlin is the capital of the Federal Republic of Germany and one of its states. With around 3.6 million inhabitants, the city of Berlin is the most populous and, with 892 square kilometres, the largest municipality in Germany. It forms the centre of the Berlin/Brandenburg metropolitan region (about 6 million inhabitants). The city-state consists of twelve districts. In addition to the rivers Spree and Havel, there are smaller watercourses as well as numerous lakes and forests in the city area. Berlin is a fascinating centre for politics, culture, science and business in the broadest sense.
We are happy to introduce the volunteers to the concept of the "Freizeitzentrum Upsala" and the work connected with it as well as some legal bases of child and youth work.
Berlin is a well-known and attractive city. It offers many opportunities for interesting and diverse leisure activities. Therefore, we will prepare some possibilities (with regional scope) and furthermore we will familiarise ourselves with your ideas and wishes.
This workcamp offers a good basis to use or even improve already existing knowledge of the German language.
After registration we will ask for self declaration form regarding children and youth protection. Please send motivation letter to show interest in the topic.
