Café Mellemfolk - Øl

Volunteer at Café Mellemfolk

Café Mellemfolk is ActionAid Denmarks non-profit café located in the heart of Aarhus. The café is run by a dedicated team of volunteers, which you can become a part of.

As a volunteer at Café Mellemfolk, you will be part of a large and international community that helps raise money for projects around the world. We offer a relaxed and flexible working environment co-created by, and for, the volunteers. It is important to us that everyone gets the best out of it, whether by learning new skills, making new friends or by doing some good.

The profits from the café are donated to projects around the world, and the volunteers help to choose which projects the café supports. Currently, we are supporting a project in Nepal that empowers young people to fight for women's rights and create change, culturally and politically.
