akzente Salzburg coordinates the application process, the administrational background and the arrival of the volunteers. If you need a visa, we will help you with the visa application process. After your arrival we do the registration together with you, give you information about Salzburg (like public transport, possible free-time activities, health care, ), etc.. We will also open a (free) bank account together with you and transfer the pocket money to your account regularly in the beginning of each month ( 115,-/month).
akzente is responsible for the application work (together with the hosting and the sending organisations) and will also take care of the final report, after the hosting organisations and you have evaluated the project together. akzente invites you to regular EVS breakfasts, organizes free-time-activities for you and will support conflict management, if necessary.
The hosting organisation will pick you up from the train station or the airport, bring you to your accommodation (organized by the hosting organization) and will transfer food money to your account ( 220,-/month). In case of Insel you will also receive food there + food money for your free days and the week-ends ( 90,-/month). The hosting organization will also provide a mentor who will support you during your EVS and who will write the youthpass together with you.

1 volunteer for MARK.freizeit.kulturWebsite: www.marksalzburg.at
September 2016 February 2017 (6 months)
The MARK is a social-profit organization that runs a cultural center at the outskirts of the city of Salzburg. Our location consists of a Café-Bar, a small concert hall for events, a rehearsal room with recording studio, a screen-printing workshop and a bike workshop. We want to be an open space for everybody, so our activities are either offered for free or at a very affordable level.
We will decide together with the EVS-participant on which project they will focus during their stay. Depending on their interests, this could be in the field of public relations, marketing, event organisation, gastronomy, bar, event technology, cooking, You should be aware that we're a non-hierarchical team and though we're trying to consider your individual interests and strengths. We're taking care of the house together, so everybody of us needs to be prepared to help in every part of the house (bar, cleaning, painting, ...). We're open mainly in the evenings (nights) and on weekends, so please don't expect a regular 9-5-schedule. We're looking forward to meeting open-minded people interested in (sub-)culture, music/art, social and ecological change, willing to be an active and creative part of a small, diverse team.
