EVS Connects People
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: Feb 28, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Four European volunteers will participate in various activities in Rezekne (Latvia) within the framework of EVS project "EVS Connects People". They will work in Rezekne Retiree Social Care Centre and European Association "World-Our Home" for 12 months. The main objective of the project is to unite European youth, integrate them together with local youth and adults, help in creating a single European community and work for its sake. In this way we want to improve understanding of youth and surrounding people about European awareness and involve them in European social processes by giving an opportunity to communicate with and get on with other European cultures. Volunteers from Spain and Hungary will work in European Association "World-Our Home". Their duties will involve informing Rezekne society about traditions and culture of their countries of origin, thus motivating for participation in various European youth exchanges and European Voluntary Service. Volunteers will also help in daily routine of the staff, preparation of seminars and meetings, communication with partners via e-mail, organization of different events, as well as providing information about voluntary service to young people who visit the Association. Volunteers from Moldova and Portugal will implement activities in Rezekne Retiree Social Care Centre with old people and young people with special needs. Their main tasks will involve helping the staff to take care of old people and youth who need help, organizing creative activities in the Center, doing sport activities and exercises, walking outside with old people and young people with special needs. They will make the Center's life more colorful, active and international.
