Every year a team of 7-10 young people works at our school, serving a one-year-internship as part of a Voluntary Social Year (FSJ) or International Youth Voluntary Service (IJFD). These young volunteers fund their stay largely on their own and their energetic commitment has already become an indispensable part of our school life. Their fields of work range from the library, the kindergarten and the nursery to acting as a substitute for absent teachers. This exposure gives them the unique opportunity to discover Thailand’s culture and the school as a workplace. The preparation and organisation of this one-year-assignment as part of the IJFD is undertaken by the Marburger Mission Foundation.
