PFIF has two representatives on the PSC. They are elected once a year by weltwärts returnees.
The PSC convenes at least twice a year in Bonn and serves as the main forum for all weltwärts stakeholders. Its task is to discuss and to take decisions on all aspects relating to the continuing development of weltwärts. Its activities include, for example, modifying programme rules, monitoring current developments and solving programme-wide problems. So, as a PSC member, you’d truly be part of the weltwärts action.
What are the requirements? Well, to stand as a PFIF member on the PSC, you must have been a weltwärts volunteer and your voluntary service must have been no longer than seven years ago. At the moment, the meetings cannot be interpreted and travel expenses can only be reimbursed for travel inside of Germany so you should live in Germany and speak good German. And, of course, you should be keen to stand up for returnees’ opinions and present them in a confident manner.
More information about the PSC is available here – and, of course, from PFIF itself.
