Your Campus Connection
Every year, hundreds of international volunteers visit Iceland and participate in volunteer projects all around the island. The volunteers in this project will create and put together a magazine promoting volunteer work, telling stories of volunteers' involvement and contribution to the environment of Iceland, and promoting the work of the organisers of these projects.
In the beginning of the project, volunteers will receive an introduction about the tasks. Afterwards, we will choose a topic for the newsletter. This is a great opportunity to step into different projects and to get to know Iceland in a better way. The group will take photos and make videos and interviews with volunteers, local hosts and people living in the area. The outcome will be published in the magazine. At the end of the project, we will prepare the final version of the magazine and publish it.
Don't forget to bring your cameras and tripods because we will also go for some Auroras hunting. A laptop could be useful as well.
A part of this project will concentrate on intercultural learning and exchange. Every evening, a different country will cook for the rest of the group and will be in charge of presenting their culture and country of origin in a non-formal way. It could be a presentation, games, theater or however you would like to show it. Therefore we recommend you to bring traditional food, photos or whatever you think is important and nice for the intercultural evenings.
This project is a way to enjoy an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while they are exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning.

CADIP - International Volunteer Programs
Visual Arts skills will be considered especially in the selection process.
There will be an orientation meeting on the first day of the project.
Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
