Take part in the next pre-departure training (26 November)!


We are happy to have you on board as a participant for our pre-departure training on 26th of November 2022 in Bremgarten, Berne!

This seminar is directed at all volunteers, incl. workcamp participants, workcamp coordinators and longterm volunteers.


With this pre-departure training at SCI, we want to distribute volunteers and camp coordinators 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. 

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 Pfadiheim Inka in Bremgarten BE. The accommodation is located at Aeschenbrunnmattstrasse 31, 3047 Bremgarten BE.

How to get there? From Berne main station, you can catch the bus Nr. 21 to the stop “Bremgarten Schloss” then turn right into “Aeschenbrunnmattstrasse” and follow it all the way to the place (Nr. 31). It’s approx. 10’ walk from the bus stop.


60.- (incl. lunch)

Please pay the 60.- before the seminar starts to our account: Service Civil International Schweiz, Monbijoustrasse 32, 3011 Bern, IBAN: CH26 0900 0000 8003 3387 4
