Application Process

Application Process

There are various steps in the application process. First, young people apply to KURVE Wustrow. They send in their CV and a filled-out application form. The deadline for the written application is about 6-8 months before the voluntary service starts between August and October.

Secondly, KURVE Wustrow invites the applicants for an orientation. During a weekend, they receive information on the programme, the partner organsiations, our security management, etc. Also, applicants have time to reflect on their motivation for a voluntary service and have one-on-one interviews.

After this, KURVE Wustrow selects possible volunteers and suggests a partner organisation to them. The volunteer writes a motivation letter for a specific partner and does a skype interview with the potential organisation.

When KURVE Wustrow, the partner organisation and the volunteer agree, the prepartion can start.
