ESC @ Children's and Youth Culture Centre "JoJo"


The Kinder- und Jugendkulturwerkstatt (JuKuWe) is a public institution for children and youth open for everybody. It is located on the edge of a residential area in the southeast part of Leipzig. It offers courses, projects and workshops for children and youth in the artistic and cultural field like theatre, art, photography, literature, multimedia, drawing and pottery. In the JuKuWe there are four full-time staff members, one German long term volunteer and a number of freelancers. The children and youth are provided with the opportunity to explore their surroundings and to learn how to express themselves through artistic media. They receive support and encouragement from artists. Children and teenagers (between 4 and 18 years) get the possibility to organize their own events and workshops. 
Child and youth cultural work provide the participants the support they need to articulate themselves freely and diversely through artistic means, and thereby increase their own sense of self-worth. Specific aims of the JuKuWe include:

  • conveyance of artistic skills and abilities, arousal and development of interests and inclinations
  • creative exploration with various materials and development of key social skills through the artistic-creative exploration,
  • interdisciplinary and intercultural projects.

There is a close cooperation amongst the parents, partners, course participants and staff which provides for a positive atmosphere throughout the JuKuWe. The children and youth regularly participate in exhibitions and competitions. The JuKuWe has been actively involved in international projects since 1997.


The volunteer will support the ongoing projects according to his/her abilities and interests, in the fields of:

  • artistics, multimedia, theatre, portrait or applied arts with children and youth.
  • Office work in the background of the projects (e.g. correspondance, flyer design) is as well a task.
  • During the ESC, the volunteer shall as well invent, prepare and carry through projects of his/her own (like own workshops during school holidays f.i.).
  • In summer there is one youth exchange the volunteer will be part of.
