If you are interested in our way of learning and living, we invite you to get involved with us!
There are a few ways how you can do that. One of them is to come to one of our camps that takes place several times per year. Another way would be to go for a long term volunteer position on the campus.

Short term Volunteering

The Tvind campus is the venue of many different events throughout the year. Some of them are organized for schools and youth with marginalized backgrounds. Others are dedicated camps or courses with specific themes for anyone interested.  The camps usually span from 7 to 10 days. If you would like to take part or get more information and updates about the camps fill in the form here.

Peace Justice Conference

The Peace Justice Conference aims to bring quality discussions and create a platform to discuss peace and justice by connecting the dots: connect the people with our beautiful world’s diversity, connect the wisdom and awareness with our daily lives and, altogether, strive for a better world. 

You can contribute by volunteering in the camp that focuses on creating different products based on peace and social justice. This could be theatre, videos, musical performances, murals, or other visual arts and practical preparations. The camp products will be presented at the conference as well. You can join the conference for a weekend or a full week.

This camp is held in summer, and costs a fee to attend.

Olympics – sports event for schools

Tvind Sports OL takes place at the beginning of September. The sports event is a long-standing tradition where children and youth from schools and care homes in Denmark get together for two days of sport, games, social interaction and lots of fun. Around 500 people attend the event.

More than 60 disciplines need to be organized- everything from team sports like football, volleyball and basketball to archery, athletics, cycling, climbing and other individual sports. There are also many activities for people who are not great sports enthusiasts like chess, street art, angling, puzzle games, etc. 

The disciplines are organized by students from DNS and schools who train Development Instructors since it is an excellent opportunity to hone your organizational skills and teamwork abilities.

 This camp is held in summer, and is free of charge to attend. 

DNS Workshops

Every summer, we have a 10-day workshop for people interested in education, sustainability and community life. You can expect a programme filled DNS pedagogy and to meet passionate learners from around the world. You will do field investigations in the local area, a lot of teambuilding with other participants, hands-on courses while running another kind of school with the teachers and students at the campus. If you are interested in DNS learning methods, but a 4-year programme feels like too big of a commitment, this is the camp to join.

This camp is held in summer, and costs a fee to attend.

Winter Concert – a classical event 

The Winter Concert takes place every January. It involves professional musicians, dancers, and singers from all the world performing unique compositions on our international stage. 

The artists involve many students and teachers (from our network of schools) in their performances and bring them closer to the world of classical music, traditional dance and contemporary art. In our school center, we have students with challenging backgrounds. The concert brings a high culture level for the most excluded part of society and their family and friends.

The concert is also open for local residents who can join the concert for free. 

 This camp is held in summer, and is free of charge to attend. 

Long term Volunteering

We can offer long term volunteering positions for people who would like to experience the campus’ community life while contributing with a specific skill. The different areas we could use a hand with are garden farming, sustainability, social integration, communication & media. You would receive food and accommodation during the stay.

Garden Farming

As part of our efforts to become a sustainable community, we cannot forget to mention our garden farming! A greenhouse, two large fields, some chickens and other animals make up our school farm.

We grow vegetables, fruit trees and berry bushes, which supply us with sustainable and ecological products through autumn and, sometimes, even winter. All of Tvind’s inhabitants take care of the gardens and enjoy the results!

The task to be carried in this position relates to planning seasonally, maintain and develop the garden.

 

Our neighbor school – PTG

PTG International Youth College is a private and independent boarding school for young people. It is an alternative school where young people from different walks of life and nationalities can study, work and live together. They promote social responsibility and work actively to increase cultural awareness, inclusion and tolerance through cultural actions in the local community, as well as on study trips.

Some of the school students come from troubled backgrounds and need social support to build a meaningful and successful future.

The volunteers’ role will be carrying the programme together with the students by organizing projects and events regarding nature, sports, youth work, arts, music, sharing experiences and skills.

Communication and admission office 

The Communications and admissions office of DNS is a small office in the middle of the campus. In many ways this office is also in the middle of DNS, being in charge of recruiting new students for the programme – but also to welcome new students and document the DNS programme as it unfolds. 

Volunteering in this office has many different possibilities when it comes to responsibilities and learning. To name a few: website development, copywriting, social media management, webinars, graphic design, videography and event management.
