One working position - open youth work in Open Youth Centre of Telšiai town, the second working position - open work with young people, working together with Mobile Youth workers who works every evening in 10 rural areas Of Telšiai district.
Project topic - volunteering and informal education of young people. Aim of the project - to give EVS volunteers space for interculturral learning through experience, and encourage young people's interest in another culture, to get the idea that us, as world inhabitants, more things unites than divides. We also want to give young people the opportunity to try social work sphere - an open youth work. We want to offer to "try a hoodie of Youth worker". We believe that such activity gives experience for future continuing growth as a person, teaches the monitor yourself, forms skill to reflect on the feelings and emotions, creatively seek solutions in the different situations.
