The Context:The aim with EVS-project ”Creative workshops with young people in disadvantaged areas" is to let the young people from abroad collaborate with youth workers and teachers at the Stockholm School of Arts. They will work with culture and our organisations projects how to reach young people aged 13-22 in socioeconomic disadvantaged areas. Step by step the two participants will together achieve skills and increase knowledge in teaching methods, leading groups of young people and support our staff with new ideas and input.The EVS-project "Creative workshops with young people in disadvantaged areas" will take place in Stockholm, between 1 September 2016 and 31 May 2017. The activities will take place at Stockholm School of Arts premises and working places. As the working places are located all around the city of Stockholm, the volunteer will be travelling to different places.The Stockholm School of Art is a great organisation with a staff of 350 employees and 16000 young people enrolling a wide range of free time activities in drama, music, fine art, dance, media and circus Therefore we are able to host two EVS-volunteers.The objectives:Europe is in crisis where young people are struggling for a work place and for studying opportunity. One of the EU 2020 strategy and aims is to increase the number of young people in work and education. For finding a work new way of thinking is necessary. Traditional ways of work situations meet the futures request. You have to broaden your insight, and women and men need to have an open mind in finding a job.Before the EVS-project starts, there will be a two days Advanced Preparation meeting in May 24-25, 2016. There will be the contact person and the EVS-volunteer attending this meeting together with the tutors and project managers from Stockholm. The purpose of this meeting is to meet each other, make the details of the planning, set up final contracts. Also the opportunity for the EVS-volunteers to be familiar with the working places.The working methods used for the EVS is; following teachers in drama, dance, music, fine art and media and learn from them but also assist and support the courses with the young people. When the EVS-volunteer feels comfortable she will be able to run her own courses, e.g. short coursers during school leaves. She will also learn from and support the teachers in the work with the FRÖN-project, in socioeconomic areas. The EVS volunteer will be able to do practical tasks as well as administrative tasks. The main week will content of 5 working days with two days off for free time. The working days can be afternoons, evenings and also on weekends depending of the situation. Workdays will be usually 6 hours.The two sending organisations from Germany will support the EVS before coming to Stockholm and support them during the implementations well as after the projects ends.
