Volunteer in Alternative school in Austria (fully funded)


An alternative school „Schule im Pfeifferhof“ is a non-profit institution initiated by parents for their children. The school was established by the association “Mit Kindern leben” in 1993. A team of eight teachers is responsible for education of 85 children. The school runs according to reform-pedagogical principles (Montessori, Piaget), which means that the work is oriented at the needs and wishes of children. The learning methods are based on “practical” work and on projects. One of the principles of this school is “learning by doing”. they try hard to prepare a surrounding for their children which enables them to make their own experiences, where they can do both, acquire cultural techniques and develop social competences. They also learn to handle rules and borders in a democratic way. Usually, children stay for nine years until they have finished their compulsory education. It is part of their philosophy to practice an intercultural exchange.
