 Volunteers Wanted for ACU Student Exchange 

Submitted by Carlo Becker on Fri, 10/21/2016 - 23:04

If you are interested in cultural exchange and meeting American students, please consider volunteering for the MentorInnenprogramm of the Freiwilligenagentur Leipzig. The program is designed to welcome and support a group of students from Abilene Christian University (Texas) that will live, study, and volunteer in Leipzig from January until May, 2017.

I participated in the programs of 2012 and 2013, and really enjoyed getting to know each year's cohort. How much time you want to invest is up to you, but being a mentor usually involves meeting in a bar once a week to help the students learn some basic German (which really improves your English conversation skills), and accompanying a group of two to three students to a Verein in Leipzig (for example UT Connewitz, Ökolöwe, Ronald McDonald House) to do volunteer work, also once a week. Beyond that, group activities might include bowling, canoeing, visiting the zoo, or cooking dinner.

For further details, please see the attached document.
