International Education & Facility Management Project
Start date: May 1, 2016,
End date: Oct 31, 2017
The Project "International Education & Facility Management Project" involves 4 youngsters. 2 young women from Belarus and Jordan will conduct their EVS in the department "Europe and International" from May 2016 to April 2017. Between July 2016 - June 2017, two young men will do their EVS in FEZ-Berlin in the facility management department.FEZ-Berlin is Europe's biggest Youth and Family Center. It offers creative games, fun and relaxation and its programme includes education, new experiences and culture. The most unique themes dealt with are: global learning, sustainable development, culture, Ecology, Space travel, Educational methods through sport and games, and international mobility progammes. The 100.000 m² outdoor and 13.000 m² indoor areas allow FEZ to be the ideal place for numerous projects. The Astrid-Lindgren Stage with its 588 seats offers an interesting theater programme for children and families. The Museum for Children in FEZ presents various themed exhibitions within its 450 m² area. Children experience in the Orbital the fascination and use of space travel. The swimming pool and sports court, the concert hall, cinema and the attractive playgrounds are most inviting to come and try them out. Around one million people visit FEZ every year. The methods FEZ-Berlin uses to carry out its projects, are participation and inclusion-oriented forms of action which invite individuals to become actively involved and to gather authentic experiences of open dialog and cooperation, of intercultural and interreligious exchange. Our volunteers will become ambassadors of our work and after the EVS period they will have received concrete work experience for their transition on to a job.Relevant to this project is that FEZ-Berlin operates through its Department "Europe and International Work" in order to increase exchanges with and knowledge about other cultures and countries. In this context we would like to give two European volunteers the chance to spend a year in Germany and through work, to get to know the country and experience working in international, educational project management. We hope the volunteers will help us with our school and family projects as well as with large scale participation projects such as: "Religions of the Word", "Games of the World", Fezitty" etc. We organise yearly, among other projects, international youth trainings, as well as week-long country- and language-themed projects which convey to a large public European Union awareness. With our project we target the topics of inclusion, youth participation and the fight against youth unemployment. The mobility project will empower the volunteers with self-esteem, responsibility and independence. The volunteers will actively be involved in the planning, implementation and evaluation phases and will successively accept more responsibility and gradually become independent. Throughout the project the activities are carried on in tandem or in teams, thus the volunteers will acquire social skills, the ability to cooperate, compromise and solve conflicts.
