EVS-Gulset for all 2014
Start date: 01 Aug 2014, End date: 01 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The EVS-prosjekt will take place in the suburb Gulset with 10.000 habitants in Skien municipality in Telemark county in the south-eastern part of Norway from august-sept 2014 to august 2015. The EVS-project can include 1-2 volunteers. The project is organized by Gulset Nærmiljøsenter as volunteer centre with cooperation with different volunteer organisations, the mall and the local church. The main activities are After School for children, The Youth’s day, Open house for elderly, activity groups for children, immigrants, families etc. We also plan for food-courses, community-dinner etc with an intercultural dimension. The tasks for the volunteers will be as a volunteer leader among other volunteers in the activities, and to use his/her skills in sport, music, drama, communication or other ways of activities. We have a plan to establish a skating-club for children/youth, communities for young immigrants together with local youth etc. The methodology to be used in carrying out the project is actve learning by doing and action learning under responsibility. We here apply for volunteers who already are interested in our project. As EVS-project we follow the frames of the EVS-charter, and will use this first project to build a strong partnership with the sending organisation. In the summer time the service will be at Vegårtun Leirsenter.. a short description of the results and impact envisaged: We will se our volunteer centre grow in quantity and quality and involve more volunteers in the ministry. and finally the potential longer term benefits: This is a part , a link in a long development. In 5 years e have built up the volunteer centre, and have now cooperation with the mall, schools, kindergarden, elderlyhome and different groups. We see EVS as an imortant part of this.
