Pre-departure training

29th Oktober 2023

Take part in the next pre-departure training (29 October)!

We are happy to have you on board as a participant for our pre-departure training on Sunday 29 October!

This seminar is directed at all volunteers, incl. workcamp participants, especially workcamp coordinators and long-term volunteers. 

Participation in the preparatory seminar is compulsory for minors who want to participate in a workcamp or LTV project.


With this pre-departure training at SCI, we want to distribute volunteers and campcoordinators with an in-depth preparation for their intercultural volunteering experience, whether it is a workcamp in Switzerland or abroad, a long-term project or EVS program. 

In general, we will provide different energizers and workshops about interculturality, stereotypes/prejudices, SCI history, peacebuilding, conflict resolution, power mechanisms, gender roles, micro-aggressions, etc. There will be specific workshops for campcoordinators and long-term volunteers to prepare you for your role, possible challenges and tasks.

As in every SCI seminar or training, you will also meet nice people and be able to enjoy a big group of passionate volunteers in a real SCI atmosphere, which is supposed to give you a taste of what you will be promoting afterwards.

The working language of the training is English, so free command of the language is necessary in order for you to benefit most from the content of the training. Of course, questions can also be asked in either German or French if it’s easier for the person asking the question.


The seminar will take place at Chinderchübu Bern (Sulgenbachstrasse 5a, 3007 Bern).

You will receive the detailed programme 2-3 weeks in advance.
