Ankara; is the capital of Turkey and the country’s second-largest city. Ankara is a cosmopolitan city with impressive public buildings, wide avenues, parks, an opera, and an international airport. The city is the site of the University of Ankara, founded in 1946, and of the British Institute of Archaeology, opened in 1948. Today, there are several universities in Ankara. It is the center of the Turkish Government, and houses all foreign embassies. It is an important crossroads of trade, strategically located at the center of Turkey’s highway and railway networks, and serves as the marketing center for the surrounding agricultural area. The city was famous for its long-haired Angora goat and its prized wool (mohair), a unique breed of cat (Angora cat), white rabbits and their prized wool (Angora wool), pears, honey, and the region’s musket grapes. Ankara is one of the driest places in Turkey and is surrounded by barren steppe vegetation, with various Hittite, Phrygian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman archaeological sites. It has a harsh, dry continental climate with cold, snowy winters and hot, dry summers. To learn more things about Ankara, you can check the website: www.ankara.gov.tr

Proyecto de dos meses, teniendo derecho a otro EVS de 10 tras éste SHORT TERM EVS.
Destino Gaziantep! Es una provincia kurda del sureste de Anatolia. La ciudad es industrial y atrae a muchos inmigrantes pero desgraciadamente no todos consiguen un trabajo ni tienen acceso a las mismas oportunidades.
El trabajo de la asociacion GEGEM se centra en estos colectivos más vulnerables, jóvenes y niños inmigrantes, enfermos o huérfanos. El objetivo principal de los voluntarios internacionales es eliminar prejuicios y estereotipos basados en la falta de contacto con otras comunidades. Organizando actividades como cursos de idiomas para niños Afganos, talleres de cocina turca para voluntarios o deportes con adolescentes huérfanos entre otras. Resumiendo, fomentar un intercambio cultural natural y espontáneo, sin estructuras formales basado en la participación.

Project type:Mobility Project for Young People and Youth Workers
Title:“Meetings with Languages”.
The idea: The complex project has in aim to fight youth unemployment by developing necessary competences during EVS stage for the volunteers to become competitive at job market.
Activities: The EVS project will have two stages of total lenght of 5 months:
First step: long term training course (1 month) increased and intense Romanian language course combined with complex and unique non-formal education training course for EVS volunteers to get necessary competences in teaching languages with the use of non-formal methods as scheme of their future work with 3 different target groups
Second step: (4 months) EVS volunteers are using skills and abilities obtained at first stage to multiply the result of own learning by teaching others English language and/or national languages using non-formal methods
Stages (5 months) will be in 2 periods:
Stage A: starts in 1st of September 2014 – 31 th of January 2015
Stage B: starts in 1st of February 2015 – 30th of June 2015
Methods: non formal way of education (learning by doing) and e-learning (working in virtual space) with elements of hand craft
Tasks and objectives:
ü EVS volunteers to organize on weekly basis language courses with elements on non-formal education for 3 different target groups.
ü To gather at least 5 people from each target group to participate in at least 3 consecutive language workshops
ü Promotion of Erasmus plus and non-formal education
ü Integration to local neighbourhood
ü Gaining skills to be independent unit at job market
Outcomes: Future EVS volunteers will learn how to become non-formal teacher of languages.
Target groups and beneficiaries: EVS volunteers will have a task to approach 3 different target groups:
a) Kids from (0-18) – teaching languages by usage of hand craft
b) Youth and adults (18 -50) – teaching languages using non formal methods of education
c) Elderly (50+) – teaching languages by using e-learning methods
The point of having 3 different target groups is for the EVS volunteers to learn better all possible methods of work while teaching languages and on the same time, filling in the needs of learning methods adapted to target groups. Kids are in the need of craft work – this is the most popular and desirable method of work with this target group. Youth and adults are in need of learning non-formal methods of work after leaving school and formal education. Elderly are in the need of get in touch with IT technologies in order not to stay behind with IT and stay competitive at job market which becomes crucial at that age …
Results: the main aim of the project is to train EVS volunteers and verify in practice their abilities. Learning of how to be language teacher using the whole range of methods, with underlining their non-formal character and use these skills and abilities gained during EVS stage is for volunteers a start to become more competitive at job market back home (after EVS) or in any other EU country. Project is addressed to young people with fewer opportunities on the basis of long term unemployment.
Inspiration: project’s idea is based on multilingualism as the languages have prior role for people to become competitive at job market – it is one of the cornerstone of EU strategies because lack of language skills is the main obstacle of getting a good job as well as prevents from better education outside of own country of residence. The project is also a part of MC strategy of creating career center for young people. Career center is the facility where not only young people can get advises of how to create own career but most of all how to get new skills and abilities needed to be competitive at job market – no matter country.

What will the volunteers do?
The volunteers will work 4 days a week in the hospital, mostly in the afternoon (from 13-17), in order to prevent their activities from interfering with the medical procedures that usually take place in the first part of the day; the total number of working hours for the volunteer every day is of 6, including the language courses and other type of activities besides working in the hospital; no involvement will be compulsory for the volunteer beyond this limit, any further participation in the activities of the organization being possible only if the volunteer expresses a direct desire for this; the schedule presented below shows an example of how a one-week program would look like; The volunteers will work in 4 different sides of the hospital: pediatric surgery and orthopedics, nephrology (here they will work with children dealing with dialysis) and the Pediatrics Clinic nr. 3 and nr. 1 (working with children that have respiratory problems).
At the beginning of the project the volunteers will be trained in a few introductory notions about clinic animation by the staff of our organization but also by other local volunteers that have been working already in this field. The specific daily activities in the hospital will require the active input of each volunteer since the EVS volunteers will be the main actors in choosing the activities, planning them, preparing all the materials and delivering them to the children (all this will happen with the support offered when needed by the project coordinator but also by local volunteers). The volunteers will not substitute the medical staff or be involved in activities that are similar to the medical attention given by doctors or nurses, but will bring something new to what a hospital offers in Romania, that is a series of educational and artistic activities such as: storytelling, English lessons (using the methods specific to the non-formal education), planning different games according to the level of mobility of the patients.
