Project Description and volunteer’s tasks
The European Voluntary Service volunteer at the Anne Frank House contributes to the educational outreach work of the House. The volunteer is based in the offices of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and will mainly assist the tour of the travelling exhibition about Anne Frank. The exhibition focuses on the story of Anne Frank, the historical context of her time and the relevance of this history for today’s world. Copies of the exhibition are on tour in 40 countries. Its educational programme is based on the concept of ‘peer education’: young people themselves are in charge of the guided tours. In the framework of the 2018 EVS project, the volunteers will mainly deal with presentations of the exhibition in the Netherlands. The volunteers will also support other educational activities of the Anne Frank House, like teacher trainings and youth seminars in the Anne Frank House and on other locations.
The travel costs will be reimbursed up to a certain amount allocated by the European Commission while accommodation and food are provided by the host organization. The Anne Frank House provides accommodation (an apartment with kitchen/bathroom) at a distance of approx. 4 km from the office.
