Have you ever wondered how it would be like to be in the national board of the JCF? How much time it consumes or what tasks have to be done? Are you interested in transregional collaborations?
Until 12th August you can ask the JCF national board questions you always wanted to ask and they will answer them in an Ask-Me-Anything video.
Here you can type in your questions.

The annual autumn speakers meeting takes places online from 18th-20th September 2020. Next to the meeting and the election of a new national board, there will be time to network, e.g. during the get together or dinner. Prior to the meeting you have the opportunity to participate at different workshops which results will be presented on the meeting.

More information can be found at the homepage of the JCF Mainz-Wiesbaden

Due to the Corona pandemic and the associated school closures, many pupils have problems working out the school material on their own, which is why the Corona School was founded by committed students. The platform connects pupils and students free of charge and digitally to help them with their learning materials. Due to the high demand, more students are needed to support the project!
