Let's go abroad - reloaded 3
Start date: Aug 1, 2015,
End date: Nov 30, 2016
The project "Let's go abroad - reloaded 3" involves 14 volunteers between 18 and 23 years old, from the volunteer orientation programme in Luxemburg. The volunteers will be participating in the summer of 2015 and 2016 in a 4 week long EVS in a city of their choice, the options being: Berlin - Germany and Metz - France.
According to their preferences the volunteers will be grouped in the project and land of choice. The projects are designed to be interdisciplinary having the following areas: assisting tasks, handcrafts / artistic work, gardening and ecology, in the following host-organisations: FEZ-Berlin and Carrefour - Metz.
The EVS should provide youngsters with fewer opportunities an approachable project which should help them gain confidence, learn key competencies, develop a sense of responsibility and expand their personal and professional perspectives.
The volunteers share their living and work with other cultures. Living together automatically brings up cultural peculiarities and differences. Everyday work and life among other cultures, experiencing support and willingness to help will deconstruct stereotypes and observe other cultures in a positive way. This experience can have a sustainable influence on one's world view and the development of one's personality, especially when a close and conscious reflection of one's self is allowed to take place.
The volunteers will be prepared for their upcoming service in a 3-step Pre-Departure-Training and a 2-step On-Arrival-Training. On a regularly basis they will have supervision and evaluation sessions to reflect the learning outcomes and to develop a consciousness of their strengths and resources. The educational approach at the center of the activities follows the principles of informal learning through: participative, cooperative and results-oriented learning.
