Training Cycle for Campleaders

Do you want to develop your organizational skills, time management and learn how to work with an international group of volunteers? Communicate effectively, motivate and collaborate in a team? Are you keen to try out a leadership role in an environment where mistakes are seen as a natural part of learning?

Training cycle step by step

Workcamp as a participant

You can choose workcamp in Czech Republic or abroad, you gain unique intercultural volunteering experience and you watch the whole workcamp already as a future leader. We recommend this experience especially for those who have never been at any workcamp before and after they participate in the whole training cycle, we are giving them 50% of registration fee for the workcamp as a participant back.

Training for campleaders

One day training

What should I expect while being campleader? Is there any helpful handbook? What are partner and inclusive leadership? How to prevent conflicts in a group and motivate? What should I say to a reporter about international volunteering? Which workcamp am I going to lead and with whom? Throughout the training we have a chance to answer these questions and enjoy it all together!

Online training

Cannot join us ofline during the weekend training? No problem, we have you covered. We have created an online training for campleaders, where you are going to learn all the things you would during the offline training and much more. You decide yourself the time and intensity of your studies.🙂

First Aid Training 

Even though you are not going to work as a paramedic during your workcamp, you can learn a lot of useful skills from this course. It will help you to be prepared to react while some minor injuries happen or when someone has an allergic reaction.

Workcamp as a campleader

During the two weeks at a workcamp, you are finally using your leadership skills in action! Throughout the workcamp, you are not a boss but you act as a team player, who works, behave according to rules which you have set together and you are learning. But in comparison to volunteers, you can learn much more: taking care of money, organize the work effectively, motivate the group while they are down or collaborate with your co-leader. Volunteering is the safe space to learn and make mistakes so don’t be afraid while they happen. You can read more about leading the workcamp here.

Evaluation meeting

How have we enjoyed our workcamps, what have we learned as leaders and how to use it in the future? A weekend full of inspiration, experiences and self-reflexions in the company of volunteers with the same experience will be the ceremonial closure of the whole cycle. Evaluation meeting will take place during autum. More info will be sent to participants of the cycle.
