    You are a carpenter? Construction fore(wo)man? Electrician?
    We are looking for craftspeople with passion!

    In Samos we produce humanitarian aid ourselves:
    by hand. locally. sustainably. independently. honestly.

    In the refugee camp on the Greek island of Samos there is a lack of everything. But the people who live in this misery, bring the knowledge and the experience to produce everything they need by themselves. And the fertile island of Samos supplies the necessary raw materials.

    And this is where we come in.

    In our workshops we work, learn and laugh together, pass on skills and knowledge, and develop innovative solutions. The products we manufacture directly improve the current living situation and alleviate humanitarian suffering. This is how we break the vicious circle of dependency.

    - wood workshop
    - construction
    - metal works
    - tailor workshop
    - phone repair
    - bike workshop
    - painting and art
    - printing
    - cooking / baking / barista
    - gardening / agriculture
    - film and photograhie
    - barber

    What will I be doing?
    In the different departments of the project on Samos, professionals from all over the world work closely together to exchange their knowledge, to create and produce, to find innovative solutions and to learn with and from each other.

    The workshop project is managed by craftspeople from the refugee community, connected through locals, facilitated by external volunteers -> You :)

    As external volunteer you will be responsible for:
    The facilitation of the workshops and help to ensure smooth working days. You will have an overview on the team, their skills, the upcoming tasks, plans and external jobs, organize missing materials, helping with introducing new volunteers and support them where needed, and ensure the connection to other actors or / and the local community.

    You will participate in the daily morning meetings to discuss upcoming questions, changes or challenges and in the weekly self care / peer support circle. Whenever it’s needed, you will help out with general tasks like cleaning, cooking or shopping, team activities or joint projects with other departments.

    Would it be possible to write us a motivation letter why you are specifically interested in working in the skills factory? In which of our many departments do you see yourself working and what experiences and skills you have related to that departments? In what way do you see yourself contributing or developing this department? And what do you expect to get out of working here?
