  • 6 months volunteer work at a project of Humana People to People

1st & 2nd Period: Studies about The Present and The Future

This is a deep study of the present world and takes a futuristic view on how to deal with the developments in the world as we know them today. It is an intensive training program where teamwork is a central element in the daily life. The team builds an essential support system to allow each individual to develop the skills and capacity needed to do much more than when they started the program. This also means each individual must take an active part in making cooperation work between people of all backgrounds.

Outreach and community work is an essential element during the 6 months training period to build capacity and both make a necessary contribution for people in need and spread awareness to mobilize others to support them. Although there are clear demands, the participants in this program are very much a part of developing the program and the daily life activities at the school. To take part in this program, you must be ready to learn new skills and be ready to transform yourself. You qualify for the program through your enthusiasm.

The 6 months intensive training period at DRH Holsted (The Travelling Folk Highschool), focuses on building a TRIO (groups of 3 working together) in order to specialize in building practical and theoretical knowledge and skills for the period of development work in Africa.

3rd Period: Service Module – Fighting with The Poor

DRH Holsted works together with projects of Humana People to People in a wide range of developing programs. The TRIOS chose their projects and start communicating with the Project Leadership before arrival. Dependent upon availability, there are possibilities to work with the following projects:

Ø Teacher Training Colleges – focused on educating teachers for rural areas

Ø Vocational Schools for young people

Ø Community work to promote sanitation and hygiene in rural areas

Ø Community with special emphasis on farming

Ø Raising funds for social projects by forming partnerships and selling second hand clothes and shoes

Ø HIV & AIDS awareness and prevention

4th Period: The Journal

The 18-months program ends with a 6-month period called ”The Journal”. The Trios return to the school – DRH Holsted – with their heads and hands full of new knowledge and energy to “Bringing It To The Public”. Defining which products they are going to make, discussing the messages to bring to people, the questions to debate, examples and stories to tell. After two months of preparations you have two months out in Europe to spread the news and knowledge about the present and the future and Fighting with The Poor, leading to debate and a clearer understanding among people, and inspiration to action. The last two months of the “Journal Period” is where the team gets together at the school deliberating and tallying up the results you have reached, the impact you have made, and how you have changed with it all. The team discusses the future and make preparation for individual or common future.
