Donegal Youth Service from Ireland in partnership with Youth Association DRONI in Georgia, Associazione Porta Nuova Europa in Italy, ASOCIATIA UN ZAMBET BACAU in Romania and UNIVERSIDAD DE LA IGLESIA DE DEUSTO in Spain will be hosting an 11 month EVS project, funded by Leargas via Erasmus+. The project involves 4 volunteers coming to volunteer with Donegal Youth Service. Four volunteers will be based in the Donegal Youth Service Headquarters, with two volunteers working in the Youth Information Centre. The Third volunteer will be working closely with The Donegal Youth Council a project under the management of Donegal Youth Service. And the fourth volunteer willbe involved in our Cross Border Youth Project know as Activ8. The EVS Volunteers placed in the Youth Information Centre will take up the role of Assistant Information Officers during their placement. They will have a remit to work closely with the Information and Development staff in the delivery of our Outreach plan. They will also be involved in the day to day operations of the information centre and drop-in facility at the Youth Information Centre. Some aspects of our work is carried out under the Erasmus+ Programme, thus the volunteer will benefit from participating in the application processes and the implementation of any successful projects, e.g. Youth Exchanges; Youth Initiatives etc. These volunteers will also be engaged in multi-media work for DYS as a means to providing dissemination opportunities for our work.The Volunteer selected to work with the Youth Council will take up the role of Assistant Project Worker, who will work closely with the Coordinator in the facilitation of regular Youth Council meetings and project work. The Volunteer in the Activ8 project will have a similar role, providing assistance to the delivery of this energetic cross border youth project.The underlining objective of the project is to offer young people an opportunity to immerse themselves in a new culture, whilst gaining new skills and languages, which will evidently result in benefits for both the volunteers and the local community.
