Information about Mullsjö folk high school
Mullsjö folk high school is beautifully situated next to a lake, 2 kilometres from the centre of Mullsjö. It was founded 1950 and their activities have their ground in Christian ideas in an environment free from drugs and they think everybody has got inviolable values. Their aim is to focus on the individual and emphasize the capacity of self-fulfilment of each person. The principal of the school is a foundation called “Svenska Alliansmissionen”, but it is partly run by funds from the government. There are 40 persons employed; 20 of them are teachers and 20 are administrative staff etc. Mullsjö has got 150 student and they usually study at Mullsjö folk high school for one year. The students can choose between 8 different educational programs and four of them are general programs where the students can choose directions like natural- and social science, sociology, IT and economy, assistant for disabled and an international course. The other programs offered are art studies, education to become a “leisure time leader” for youth and finally a bible educational program.
The municipality of Mullsjö is situated in the region “Västergötland” and the landscape is characterised by forests and lakes as well as agricultural areas. The municipality has got 7100 inhabitants and 5600 persons live in the town Mullsjö. Mullsjö has got some shops, a library, a care centre, dentists and services as post office, bank etc. Mullsjö has got good bus- and train communications to other towns and cities and there are 30 kilometres to the closes city, Jönköping. The distance to Gothenburg, Sweden’s second largest city, is 140 km and it takes two hours to get there by train. Thanks to the beautiful nature, Mullsjö attracts many tourists both in the summer and winter. In the summer Mullsjö offers outdoor activities such as hiking, horse-back riding, canoeing and access to many lakes and in the winter it is popular to go ice-fishing or skating on the lakes or do other winter sports as skiing. The outdoor activities also provides the volunteer the possibility to try out different activities together with the other students at the school.
The school is adjusted for visually handicapped and hearing impaired students and they can either study the longer courses or participate in some special shorter courses for student with these needs. Mullsjö folk high school is also a course centre for external groups who have seminars or meetings there as well as evening events in their assembly hall. The impact on the local level will be through the personal contact the volunteer will have with people living in the area. Since Mullsjö is a small village the volunteer really has the opportunity to meet and get to know people. Interaction on a personal level will have a positive impact on the cultural awareness and youth engagement. The students at Mullsjö Folk high school lives and eat at the school and this will also the volunteer experience. This is a good way to interact even more with the culture and the other students. Via the school the volunteer will also have the opportunity to inform the local community about the great possibility which lies in the “Youth in Action Programme”. Hopefully the volunteer can inspire other youth to be an active citizen and broaden their perspective – by going as a volunteer.
Service and learning experience
The school offer full accommodation and a possibility to taking part in different subjects and even possibility to taking part in Swedish classes and even in the International class. The volunteer will be some kind of a hub for international meetings. Mullsjö folk high school believes that participating in a project can give the volunteer at least the following learning opportunities:
– Learning about Sweden and Swedish culture
– Learning Swedish
– Developing as a person; becoming more independent etc.
– Getting experience from running projects and cooperating with other people from different countries
– Learning about the Swedish folk high school system and philosophy
– Developing specific interests or qualities through participating in classes (e.g. art, ceramics, music etc)
– Learning about fair trade and global issues
The volunteer will recieve both a social and work mentor. The work mentor will introduce the volunteer to his/hers activities and tasks while the social mentor will introduce the volunteer to the social life in Sweden. Examples could be to follow the volunteer to the outdoor activities or introduce him/her for the students in the classrooms.
The role of the volunteer
The volunteer will not replace ordinary staff, and will not have the same level of responsibilities as the teachers or other staff members. S/he will neither have the role of a student. At the same time we try to make the volunteer feel that s/he is both close to the students and the staff, which we believe is important for the social integration. S/he will be a complement in different fields at school, and be welcomed to take own initiative and be given support if s/he would like to organize an activity or project. The volunteer will have a social role in the school and s/he could be a support/host during short-term courses at school, help out in the cafeteria or in the school’s fair trade shop, be part of organising leisure or cultural activities for the students, etc.
The volunteer will help out in different activities of the school, such as:
– Organizing different events and take care of free- time activities of the students (film shows, intercultural evenings etc)
– Helping our staff in kitchen sometimes (not regular)
– Be a helping hand in our Fair Trade Shop and inform about the fair trade system
– Be able to initiate their own projects and activities, also with support from the coordinating organisation PeaceWorks, (examples, start and run a student magazin or organise an international study trip to the volunteer’s home land)
-Working in the cafeteria together with students
The volunteer/s will study Swedish together with the non-Swedish speaking students, who regularly have “Swedish as a second language” classes.
