Empowerment for active citizenship
Start date: Dec 1, 2016, End date: Oct 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Service Civil International – Deutscher Zweig e.V., the German branch of the international volunteer organisation dedicated to promoting a culture of peace, is hosting two volunteers from Russia and Serbia in a 12 month European Voluntary Service project in the frame of the programme Erasmus+. The project is taking place in Bonn in the headquarters of the German branch of SCI. The volunteers will get acquainted with the work of an international NGO and will have diverse learning and qualification opportunities. The fields of work of the EVS volunteers are: counselling and placing interested volunteers into international workcamps; support of the planning, preparation and implementation of trainings; public relations work; leading of an international workcamp. The volunteers can also, depending on their interests and abilities, get involved in the preparation and implementation of individual projects. Possible topics of these projects are promotion of democracy, Human Rights, refugees and migration, intercultural learning, etc. The concrete working tasks will be discussed and agreed upon after the arrival of the volunteers and adjusted during the course of the service. The volunteers will be part of our office team. Within the SCI-network they will also work together with staff and activists of other SCI branches and partners. The working languages will be English and German. The volunteers will support SCI´s work for peace. They will experience diverse ways of personal growth and will be able to develop their own skills and abilities. It will be done in all mentioned working tasks through personal commitment, self-reliance, creativity, own project management and with the support of staff and activists. SCI is expecting the volunteers to be able to work in a team and be self-reflective. After the end of the service we expect the volunteers to get active and involved in activities of their sending organisations or in other civil society organisations in order to multiply their experiences in the local community of their home country. We expect to further develop our cooperation with the sending partners through this programme.
