Action : Youth Support Systems

Type of project: 4.3 Training Course

Venue: Barcelona, Spain

Date: April 2014 (1 week)

Application Deadline: 19/09/2013

Participants:

30 participants, 2 per organization, 1 with fewer opportunities per organization

Participants’ profile: youth workers, youth leaders or educators willing to develop their skills and knowledge in non-formal education, and in the topic of art in youth work in order to improve the quality of future projects and activities that they implement or in which they participate.

Summary of the Project:

We expect to work with a mixed group of people with fewer opportunities and without, in order to give them a global vision about what Europe is and how it can help them on their way. We believe that non-formal education does have a strong influence to change difficult situations and this is why we come up with the idea of this project. We want to inspire our participants to reach new approaches in life through art, music and performances in an international environment.

The project will offer the opportunity to discuss and debate several important issues that normally do not exist in the formal systems of education. It will give the chance for participants from EU countries for individual reflection about how music and media can bring a group together creating a strong connection among participants thanks to the activities and workshops we will create for them.

The methods used during the training will create the situation of common learning and exchange and will provide tools to improve the quality of the youth work in the home countries of participants. We ask our future potential partners to believe in the topic and to send us motivated participants linked with music and art performance.

Please send us the Partner Identification Form as soon as possible in order to prepare our application for this October deadline.

The volunteers will work as an assistant to an AGSA employee and in cooperation with other volunteers, with a concrete field of work and an own working place. It is possible to work in different fields, according to volunteer’s interests and the concrete working conditions. One of the volunteer’s most important areas of work will be the preparation for our International Youth Meeting “Eurocamp 2014.” Volunteers will be involved with the preparation for the project, and will be in contact with participants from more than 30 countries.

EVS República Checa. Temática: medio ambiente, comunicación y conciencia europea

 
  • Youth and Environment Europe (YEE) started to host EVS volunteers in 2001 so we have already many years of experience with hosting EVS volunteers. The main goals of our federation are to support appreciation for nature and raise awareness about environmental problems among young people in Europe. We believe that we reach these goals also thorough involvement in EVS project. We hope that our volunteers will become inspired during their EVS project with ideas about nature protection and youth work and therefore continue working in NGOs and in the environmental field at the European level after their project ends. On the other hand, we hope that a volunteer interested in the environmental sphere and coming from different surrounding can bring new inspiration to our activities and can provide us with useful ideas.
    As YEE is an international youth organisation, we work usually in intercultural teams preparing projects and also in our office in Prague the team is multicultural. We believe that it is very beneficial for us to have foreign volunteers in our office in the Czech Republic as it ensures even more international character to our team and for the volunteer as she/he can experience working in such intercultural surrounding. The intercultural character of our office reflects the main idea of our network that unites organisations from many different countries. So such composition of working team is very fruitful when organising international projects for youth participants from throughout Europe. We believe that being an EVS volunteer in our organisation gives an opportunity for young people to gain valuable experience working as part of an international team. The organisation is composed of members from all corners of Europe, and it therefore can be seen as a multicultural space which is a positive example of how Europe could look in the future.
    Our organisation is a youth organisation which aims to strengthen youth participation, especially by international youth projects based on non-formal education. We are glad to offer to EVS volunteers such learning opportunity in our office and facilitate their process of learning.

We have hosted already more than 15 EVS volunteers so we are experienced in coordinating the project, with facilitating learning process of the volunteer, with crisis management and all practical arrangements.

Tasks

The projectis divided into three main parts: 1. The first (and main) part is the help in the office of Youth and Environment Europe (YEE) with activities connected with campaigns, training courses, seminars, webpage and publications. Concrete tasks offered to volunteers to choose from are, for example: networking with our member organisations, creating or collecting interesting articles for YEE publications, publication design, updating the YEE webpage, campaign preparations and taking pictures for publications. S/he will also have the opportunity to attend and represent YEE in the events and projects all over Europe which we are participating in and organising. International projects are one of the main areas of YEE’s activities and our EVS volunteers are offered the opportunity to take part in these events. The volunteer can also participate and help in all activities needed for running an NGO and preparing youth projects. 2. The second part is to help in the practical activities in the Ecological Centre Toulcuv Dvur. This part of the project will help our volunteers to enter the local community. Toulcuv Dvur organises educational programmes on the topic of nature for children, handcrafts, presentations on Czech traditions and cultural events. There are a lot of programmes that are carried out, such as bread baking, home-soap production, wooden basket production, help with the animals, practical help in the garden and orchard, support by preparations of cultural events and exhibitions. Some examples of the cultural events at Toulcuv Dvur are Carnival, Christmas, Bio market andthe Day of the Earth. The part of the project enables volunteers to make more practical activities and often in the nature. 3. The third part is the volunteer’s own project. We give our volunteers time to develop their own project with the help of YEE, especially EVS coordinator. The possibilities are quite open, depending on the volunteer’s interests but preferably should be connected with nature and/or the environment. We offer volunteers the possibility to develop their own idea about activities in a way which will help her/him in their future job or study. We always give enough time to think about the personal project and try to help. We offer couching and assistance in the project.

Procedure

Volunteers need to send their CVs and motivation letters till 25 August to evs@yeenet.eu. The volunteers that will be selected into second round will have skype interview. One week later 2 future volunteers will be selected by the Secretariat and Board of YEE.
