The Youth Training Centre Blossin engaged since 2000 in international projects. These include training for multipliers, international youth meetings with different partners and funding agencies, as well as the European Voluntary Service.
For us, the European Voluntary Service is to be an ideal platform to bestow youth mobility experience in Europe, to let them participate in non-formal educational processes and gain valuable experience just for their lives in many informal situations. In addition, the close ties to the region in which we operate that volunteers get the one hand much information from the immediate countryside and on the other hand, the people of the region with young people from Europe in Berührung- and mingle provides. This happens for example in a youth club, school or leisure situations within the JBZ Blossin that for the people in the area to use open, but also in daily life.
Furthermore, we would like to volunteer in a toolbox consists of intercultural skills and competencies of leadership in the sense of a group leader, as we work with many youth groups (national and international) work with give on the way. You can then decide whether they want to continue in their home country to the usually new experiences.
We will include a volunteer and looking for young people who have already had some experience in training or study, but are still looking in her life. We find people with experience in team sports or sports in general very interesting as our experiential education deals often have a movement-oriented background. Young people who are fond of active outdoors, we find so great.
The volunteers will be actively involved in several projects of youth education and to organize the potential for them frame content and services offered and perform. These are essentially experiential education programs. They are also the youth coordinator in the region go and support him in his tasks, learn as country and its people better.
Volunteers receive guidance and feedback on the activities carried out. They are also in a mentoring approach in which they obtain from former volunteers information and advice, and able to maintain personal exchange.
The participants should be made aware of an open Europe and the experiences in their home country multiply where they can share with their friends, family, etc. about the work done voluntary service. For us as an institution hosting volunteers bring strengthen our international profile and also many new exciting experiences and findings take us forward.
