CCG offers varied volunteering opportunities—all of which allow you to meet inspiring individuals, try new things and contribute to the common good.
- Volunteer at the 2020 Youth Week: Join us for a unique and rewarding experience at our location outside Budapest. On-site volunteers have options to help out with logistics, serve as staff photographers and work directly with participants and workshop facilitators. We also have opportunities for motivated volunteers interested in event planning, fundraising and food coordination. We welcome volunteers for between 2 and 11 days—it’s an experience you won’t soon forget.
- Contribute remotely: We’re looking for volunteers throughout the year to do research, transcribe interviews, contribute to our blog and more—on your own schedule and from anywhere in the world.
We are recruiting facilitators to teach workshops at Youth Week. If you would like to contribute and inspire young adults, please see the info sheet below, fill out our application here, or contact our content coordinator directly.
- Facilitators are young professionals in any industry who can speak to their experience in the workforce and contribute to participants' understanding of the way questions of sustainability, human rights and entrepreneurship can be tackled in everyday careers. We're especially looking to fill slots on the topics of gender equality, quality education, migration/minorities (e.g. environmental causes of migration), and sustainability from a private sector perspective.
- Workshop facilitators spend a full day on site (and are encouraged to spend 1-2 nights on campus) and give one or two workshops that cover their own career trajectory, their expert input on the topic at hand, and a case study or other interactive element. We offer comprehensive preparatory material to make the process as streamlined as possible for facilitators.
- Social Project facilitators spend a full day on site (and are encouraged to spend 1-2 nights on campus) and give one or two workshops directly tied to the social projects that participants develop over the course. Operating under clear guidelines, they cooperate closely with the Social Project coordinator and other facilitators.
- We also offer several panel discussions throughout the two courses, for which we are recruiting panelists. Tentative topics include "If I were 20 again" and a panel on learning from failure.
- Social Project mentors are young professionals with project management skills who take a hands-on role in shepherding participants through the development of their social projects. SP mentors are on campus for the full course, oversee social project workshops, and guide groups throughout the week.
