Europäischer Freiwilligendienst im Agapedia Kinderzentrum Esslingen 2016/2017
Start date: 01 Aug 2016, End date: 30 Nov 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Three participants from Greece, Czech Republic and Georgia will spend the European Voluntary Service at the Agapedia Centre for Children in Esslingen near Stuttgart/Baden-Württemberg for one year. They will be involved in daily activities of an organisation, which offers a voluntary non-formal learning place for children of the age group of 6 until 12 years. The three participants will enrich the work of Agapedia because of their own cultural background and their mother tongues. In accordance to their qualifications and interests, the volunteers will realise their own projects in fields such as dancing and theatre, sports and psycho-social services. They will have the opportunity to develop and manage own projects. Results will be accessible to the broader public. Each of the volunteer will get the chance to bring in and to improve their specific personal competences. Therefore, they will have the opportunity to learn from each other: The Czech New Media Art alumna will help to (further) develop creative abilities of the children. The Georgian will apply his sports and artistic abilities. The Greek student for psychology will make use of her theoretical knowledge in practical social work. Moreover, she will be involved in the planning and implementation of activities of transnational NGO networks. The EVS will contribute to the development of skills and strengthen the competences of the volunteers (such as project management, soft skills). During the project, the volunteers further develop their own personality; discover their strengths and specific abilities. They should have an unforgettable stay in Germany and will enrich the world of Agapedia. The Agapedia team will support the volunteers the whole time. Through various activities, they will become part of the local community. The project will also contribute to the extension of European networks and cooperation of Agapedia.
