Dekeyser & Friends Foundation seeks applications from young people around the world to attend the Engage in Conservation Project in Hamburg, Germany

The Dekeyser & Friends Foundation invites applications by young people from different countries, cultures and social strata to attend the Engage in Conservation Project. The project will be held in Hamburg where the young people would learn how to engage and empower young people to take action for biodiversity for two months starting January 2012, followed by a ten-month period, during which they will work on their own youth project at home supported by the Dekeyser & Friends Foundation.

 The Foundation welcomes applications from all young individuals, who are passionate about the project and look forward to the exchange with the Friend. This is a fully funded fellowship. Selection is done by the foundation and the project Friend and based on your motivation and enthusiasm for the project.

You can become part of a group of young people from around the world, who under the guidance of a leading personality – your project Friend – work together on a project with a clear goal. Dance on stage, build houses for scavenger families, help children through animal-assisted therapy or educate youths on healthy food and thereby become a Dekeyser & Friends Fellow.
Everyone in principle between 18 and 28 can apply for a Fellowship.

The Fellowship includes the following:
  • Tuition and all project-related activities including the DreamLab sessions
  • Transportation to and from the project site (including the flight from home to project country and transport from the airport to project site)
  • Full board (three meals per day) and accommodation in shared single-sex rooms for the project duration
  • Group computers, video cameras, photo cameras and IT equipment for project related work
  • Support with all necessary documents for the visa application process as well as documents to prepare Fellows for the project
  • Health, accident, travel and third party reliability insurance
Fellow responsibilities
  • Responsibility to obtain a passport and necessary visa for the project country and to cover the related expenses.
  • Commitment for each Fellow to honor the D&F Fellowship by contributing actively to the project and your Fellow team.
  • The cost for mandatory vaccinations as well as the health check, if applicable. Travel costs to and from the airport in home country. Pocket money to cover your personal needs.
  • Medication and treatment expenses for pre-existing medical conditions (e.g. diabetes, high or low blood pressure, etc.).
