Odense Host Programme matches international newcomers with local volunteer hosts who speak the Danish language and know about the local community and job market. Meetings with a host can help you get a good start on your life in Odense.
We offer help from two kinds of hosts, depending on your needs and wishes:
A career host can introduce you to the Danish work mentality and local job market, give feedback on your CV and cover letter and support you in your job search. The match is based on common professional backgrounds.
A culture host can introduce you to Odense’s cultural life and Danish society, make you familiar with the local community and help you expand your social network. The match is based on common interests.
You will be matched for a period of six months where you will meet at least six times. The programme is free of charge.
