Kulturmanager am Institut für deutsche Sprache und Kultur e.V.
Start date: Aug 1, 2016, End date: Oct 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Institute for German language and culture is a service institution at Martin-Luther-University in the area of German language training and qualification with 21 years of experience in providing not only language but also cultural and historical knowledge as well as intercultural competence to several hundred people each year from all over the world. Together with our host family program for international students we are actively involved with the local community in Lutherstadt Wittenberg which helps us to set up intercultural activities with youth clubs, schools and other institutions. In our 12-months - project "cultural manager at the Institute for German language and culture" we host one international volunteer who will be working together with another German volunteer. The main tasks are to be a contact person for our international course participants, to help them with questions regarding life in Germany, what do to during free times, how to meet other young people from Wittenberg and where to travel on weekends. During language course times the volunteers are working together to provide a variety of free time activities such as art workshops, sports events, arrange movie nights or barbecues, meetings to learn more about the student's countries and cultures etc. In the afternoon or on weekends volunteers accompany the student groups on their day trips to other cities, such as Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden, Halle and so on. During times when no courses are offered, the volunteers are supporting our team in the office and prepare their own projects for the next course groups. A volunteer in our project will be part of our office team and has the chance to dive into an intercultural experience with young people, professors and German teachers from more than 30 countries. A year in this multicultural environment gives a different perspective on your own culture, language and view on today's world.
