In Waldsee's German Apprentice Program*, you'll learn German by becoming a Lehrling, working half-time developing a community skill auf deutsch, and learning German half-time in regular Waldsee learning groups. German apprentices live with regular Waldsee participants and join in village activities, but also contribute to the Waldsee community and develop a work skill at the same time, learning from master teachers and experts in their field.
It's a time-honored German tradition and a great leadership opportunity—and you can join the adventure this summer! Participants receive a certificate of apprenticeship with work hours included. Reduced tuition. For ages 16-18 with two years or more of German. Apprentice opportunities in:
- Bakery and Kitchen
- Store, Bank and Café
- Gardening/Green Roof
- Art and Photography
- Science/Environmental Studies
*Note: Participation in the German Apprentice Program is subject to approval by the dean. To request the additional application forms, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
