International Youth Work - European Volunteers for Wales
Start date: Aug 1, 2015,
End date: Jul 31, 2017
“International Youth Work – European Volunteers for Wales” will provide a mobility activity for 2 volunteers from Spain and Estonia. The volunteers will be based in Pembroke, and will be engaged in a variety of activities of the local Youth Centre. Both volunteers will be working with the Tanyard Youth Project in Pembroke focusing on Youth Work.
The activity (EVS) will be long term (12 months) to allow the volunteers time to really get involved with the Youth Centre and the work that they do, as well as having the opportunity to develop their own personal projects. Through non-formal and informal learning methods the volunteers will increase their knowledge and experience in international youth work. The project will allow young people from Europe to interact, share ideas, exchange cultures and learn about each other in a safe and supportive environment. The volunteers will be fully integrated into the activities of the hosting organisation and will be given the opportunities to focus on elements that most interest them and to develop new skills, experiences and knowledge that will enhance their employability and personal professional development.
Volunteers will be encouraged to bring ideas and opinions from their countries of residence to the UK to share with other, to break down international barriers, as well as take new ideas back to input into their society, thereby creating a wider European Community.
