EVS: FURTHER AND BEYOND
Start date: Jan 1, 2016,
End date: Dec 31, 2016
The project is developed for young people with fewer opportunities that are facing very difficult psychosocial situations, poverty, social exclusion, special needs and unemployment. Our aim is to empower the competences that will help young people in the process of inclusion into society and on the labor market. The short term EVS activities will be one part of a longer learning process that will provide long lasting effects. We want to enhance the personality development of young people through the empowerment based on non-formal learning and positive experiences, make their self esteem better, develop more efficient coping strategies and get over their prejudices.Zavod Manipura from Slovenia will host all together 10 volunteers from Holland, Germany, Poland, Hungary and Belgium.The volunteers will be able to join a wide spectrum of activities: they will help with the renovation of the house, making small furniture for the Youth Centre, building the playground, taking care of the ecological garden and orchard, constructing the place for small animals... Next to the practical work they will help to organize and they will join the free-time activities for local children and youth like sport activities, playing games in the nature and other outdoor activities, different artistic activities and free playing time for children. They will do some work for the local community like joining different events, spending time with the disabled people and organize some activities for the children in the local kindergarten and primary school. The volunteers will also help to create the promotion materials for the Youth Centre and for EVS and take part in the promotion activities. There will be a very intense inter-cultural learning process because we will host volunteers from different countries at the same time.
