Through a stay at Café Utopia the volunteer will get insight in all aspects of operating a café. Moreover, he/she will get knowledge about people with mental diseases and get a deeper understanding on how to engage with them. The volunteer will also learn about social/economic organisations and the benefit they provide to the greater community.

The volunteers, coordinated and supported by the staff, will participate in these activities:

  • The volunteer will work alongside the staff in various areas depending on the background, education and interest of the particular volunteer.
  • Activities could include waiting on tables, assisting in the kitchen, general maintenance in the café and office work, but there will also be plenty of opportunities to make his/her own activities such as organising different kinds of events.

The profile of the ideal volunteer is;

  • The project is open to everyone; however, volunteers with a high level of English will be preferred. We are very flexible concerning the profile of the volunteer.
  • He/she may have a background/interest in social work, catering or culture; however, the most important requirement is that the volunteer has both empathy and the understanding of dealing with mentally vulnerable people.

The travel expenses will be reimbursed on the bases defined by European Commition; accommodation and meals are provided by the host organization, volunteers will also receive pocket money monthly.
