Group Leaders' Trainings

You want to lead an international workcamp for the first time? Then come to our international camp leaders training! You can participate if you are at least 18 years old and consider leading a group of international volunteers. Of course, the participation does not oblige you to lead a workcamp afterwards; you can also use the training to get a taste of the workcamp world and meet other volunteers.

Group Leaders' Training 2021

This year we will be offering an online training for (future) group leaders . The online training will consist of different modules that you can work on independently at your own pace. In addition, we will offer digital live training sessions in which you can apply, try out and discuss the content directly in the group.

As an introduction to the online training, we invite you to a virtual kick-off meeting on June 15th. Have you already registered for our Group Leaders' Training in Fornsbach? Then you will receive all further information about the kick-off meeting and other content by email.

Do you still want to register for the online training? You can find the registration form here .

At the joint kick-off you can get to know us and all other volunteers who would like to lead an international workcamp with IBG in the summer.

Practical tasks, useful lectures, sharing experiences and spending the time for preparation: The training for me was a great opportunity to work with great teamers and get to know a lot of amazing people, who have the same goals in life - to make the world a bit better.

Participant of the online training for camp leaders 2020


Essentially, the trainings deal with the question: How do I manage a group? We will work on group processes, the dealing with conflicts and your individual leadership style. The trainings are intended primarily for aspiring work camp leaders. However, everything you learn here will also help you outside of the work camp world, of course, for example when working with youth groups. There will be a unit on intercultural learning (after all, our work camps are international) and lots of practical tips and tricks for organizing and dealing with larger groups. At the trainings, you will meet other dedicated volunteers who also want to lead work camps, as well as the people behind IBG. Experienced teamers will give you insights into 'their' work camps and tell you how they have mastered challenges or conflicts.


You can participate in the online training for free.

Regardless of whether or not you lead a camp afterwards, you will of course receive a confirmation of participation.
