EVS dla Uchodźców/ EVS for Refugees
Start date: Jul 6, 2015,
End date: Jul 5, 2016
Our project is taking place in the Podlaskie region of Poland, with the coordinating and planning centre in Bialystok, in the
DIALOGUE Foundation. This project is the continuation of the project ”EVS for Refugees”, run from 2010 in a frame of Youth in Action Programme and currently, from November 2014, within ERASMUS+ Programme. With this application we want to invite three volunteers to continue the activity. Their activity will last 9 months, i.e. 275 days. The participating countries, apart from Poland, will be Spain, France and Italy. Together with the coordinating and hosting organization, there will be 5 organizations involved. EVS activity will be held in two places: the reception centre for refugees in Czerwony Bór and the coordinator’s headquarters in Bialystok. The volunteers will work in the kindergarten for refugees’ children, they will organize extra classes for refugee teenagers and adults. The classes will be compatible with the volunteers’ hobbies and qualifications and will be aimed at organizing free time for children, teenagers and adults. The volunteers will also visit primary schools, junior high schools, secondary schools, universities and specialistic institutions throughout the region of podlaskie, teaching lessons about human rights, stereotypes and refugees, aiming at raising the society’s awareness of the refugee issue. They will also design their own activities to reach the aim of the project and help prepare integration events. Informal learning methods, like discussion, presentation, exchange of ideas, opinions, training combined with discussion of the issue, tandem learning, learning by doing, individual and group initiatives, will be dominating throughout the project. The effect of the project will be the development of intercultural dialogue, raising awareness of the refugee issue among the participants and recipients of the project, increasing the level of knowledge and competence of both participants and recipients. Additional effect will be increasing the visibility of the ERASMUS+ Programme in the region.
