Encouraging Potential NI 2015
Start date: Jan 1, 2015,
End date: Dec 31, 2016
This project, Encouraging Potential NI 2015, will host 5 long term EVS volunteers on placements in Northern Ireland. The volunteers are from Spain, Italy, Latvia, Czech Republic and Greece. Placements will be for 12 months starting in February and March 2015.
The volunteers will be based in 3 different hosting projects:
- Volunteer Now where the volunteers will help encourage more people to volunteer (including young people) and will support volunteer involving organizations and initiatives to develop volunteering
- FabLab Belfast (ACT) which is a digital fabrication laboratory. The volunteer will assist the staff in engaging with local groups and individuals to explain the concept of FabLab and to encourage users to think of products to design and make
- Bryson Intercultural which supports Minority Ethnic groups. The volunteer will support Irish Traveller and Roma communities, including children and young people.
The volunteers will gain new skills and competences, develop their linguistic abilities and undergo personal development. They will help local communities to gain new knowledge and experience of the project activities, as well as a greater European awareness through their contact with young Europeans. It is hoped that there will be increased health and wellbeing for all involved in the activities.
