About hosting organisatsion
Globalhagen and Mellemrummet
Globalhagen Hostel is building a worldwide community from the location in Copenhagen.
180+ international and national active volunteers running the hostel and café.
Community is built on values representing a diverse, activist group of young people, who stand together in solidarity and inclusion regardless of origin, religion, sexuality, and access to privileges.
The volunteers’ tasks: are very diverse, and they will have the opportunity to influence the work that they will be doing. The different tasks include both front office work and back-office work, which is more related to skills development.
Front office tasks are about managing the guest experience in all matters when the guests are in-house. This includes tasks like :
· operating the booking system
· welcoming guests
· keep facilities clean and tidy
· help guests navigate around Copenhagen during their visit
· share our story with the guests and invite them to participate in our 200+ yearly events in our café and with our partner organisations.
Back office tasks are chosen by the volunteer depending on which track they choose. Here they can choose between:
· hostel administration
· service management
· volunteer- and event coordination
· digital communication.
We are looking for three volunteers between 18-30 years old.
The volunteer must be at least 18 years old due to Danish laws concerning money handling and serving alcoholic beverages.
Volunteers with fewer opportunities
In the spirit of ESC, we only take volunteers with a background of fewer opportunities.
The activities in the project and our capacity and experience embrace young people with fewer opportunities. We find it important to always include our volunteers fully in our community, for example with community events and team meetings where decisions are made in an open and participatory manner.
We identify fewer opportunities as:
· Geographical obstacles: related to people from remote or rural areas; people living in small islands or in peripheral regions; people from urban problem zones; people from less serviced areas (limited public transport, poor facilities)
· Social obstacles: associated with people facing discrimination because of gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability,
· Economic obstacles: associated with people with a low standard of living, low income, dependence on the social welfare system or homelessness; young people in long-term unemployment or poverty; people in debt or with financial problems
· Educational difficulties: associated with young people with learning difficulties; early school-leavers; young people with poor school performance
· Cultural differences: related to immigrants or refugees or descendants from immigrant or refugee families; people belonging to a national or ethnic minority; people with linguistic adaptation and cultural inclusion difficulties.
