Education through Experience II
Start date: Aug 1, 2015, End date: Jan 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Project Education through Experience II enables 7 volunteers from Germany, France, Poland, Spain, Austria and the UK - to do their long term European Voluntary Service in Võru Lasteaed Punamütsike, Haabersti Vaba Aja Keskus, Kohila Vallavalitsus, Tallinna Kullerkupu Lasteaed, MTÜ Montessori koolitusühing, Tallinna Kanutiaia Noortemaja. Volunteers will participate in core activities of the organisations and therewith help to carry out the mission of their receiving organisation, as well develope their own competences in respective areas. Furthermore, volunteers will gain most valuable experience of living abroad for 9 to 12 months: getting more conscious of their personal abilities, working in a different environment, learning another language, getting more aware of different cultures etc. Both receiving organisations want their volunteers to have this chance to learn and experience all the different aspects of voluntary service so that they could be successful in their personal and professional lives in the future. As well other way around, the organisations know that every young volunteer coming to their organisation, will teach them (staff, target group and local community) most valuable lessons by introducing their culture, language, background and just even just with their personality. Therefore on one hand, hosting international volunteers helps these two organisations to fulfill their goals on a local level, either promoting healthy lifestyle, non-formal education or foster young people's artistic skills, creativity and (inter-)cultural awareness. On another hand both of the organisations express their wish to give this great learning opportunity to the volunteers thus having a positive influence on their personal and professional lives. This project helps the volunteers in the acquisition of competences with a view to improving their personal development and employability in the European labour market and beyond. In turn the organisations and local community learn to accept, appreciate and work together with young people from other countries, becoming therefore inter-culturally more aware, tolerant and open minded.
