Long term EVS : New Level Dates of activity: 1st of March 2015 to 31st of October 2015 (8 months) Volunteers: 1 volunteer from Italy: Charusheela Pulito Venue: Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic We believe that EVS volunteer is a perfect person out of members of organization, who can naturally reflect and feel the interests, issues of local community, youth mood, express life itself in creative way. Charusheela Pulito from the position of EVS volunteer, peer attitude to youth (one of the main target groups of Education/Mobility projects) was be ideal choice for that purpose. Aim of this project was to include volunteer into creation of ICT and PR strategy of small and young non-profit organization KURO Hradec Králové in order to learn mutually one from another. Charushella was not only involved in managment of content/creative design of official website, Facebook pages, as well as assistance of hosting organization, her EVS colleagues to promote the public events in local city of Hradec Kralove and region, spread the information about Erasmus+ projects, vacancies, calls, news, events. Description of main objectives during the project: -active involvement of volunteer to workshops/sessions about web-design, administration, support of Social Networks provided by hosting organization staff; -learning of czech language and czech culture; -making photo-reports, creating posts, pages about project activities and public events; -creation of project logos for diffierent international projects, hosted by KURO HK, as well as the biggest Timebank of Europe Network. -improvement of internet image of KURO HK by creative innovative approaches,brought by EVS volunteer -leading the sessions at non-formal language club "Language TOGO" at the local art-cafe - make more effective use of social media - help in creation of presentation materials by using ICT tools, design and creative thinking. - clear communication of mission, vision and values of the KURO HK to public audience by using Social networks and other visual tools. -creation and leading the mini-project about art in education and museum work. Secondary objectives:1)Give volunteer opportunity to participate on events KURO HK is organizing in order to gain new competences.2)Assistance at public events, organized by Partners of KURO HK in the city/region, as a great opportunity to learn about active civil participation, different topics as work with children, environmental issues, culture and charity. Volunteer was mainly activley involved to educational/PR department of Museum of Easter Bohemia, Youth Houses, Partner kindergarden, art-cinema club, Partner elementary school; Inegrational center for foreigners. The main methods used during project were: non-formal educational tools, presentations, workshops, training courses, study visits, ICT tools, games, discussions, brainstorming, evaluation in different forms (oral/written/periodic/final), art tools, visual materials (audio/video/photo). The main activities with assistance of volunteer or leaded by her were: presentations about EVS project experience; presentations about Italy/Italian culture; workshops about photography and fashion; language workshops (English/Italian) as well as cooking sessions at Inegrational center for foreigners and schools; assistance at summer children's camps; creation of visual promo materials, logos etc. We believe that Charusheela made quite rich impact on herself, as well as hosting organization and local community. Project “New level” was successful due to the amount of volunteer’s service results. We believe that Sheela grown up on both personal and professional levels. She experienced not only new challenges in ICT and public relations of NGO, but also clear impact on her was also the life and work in culturally different environment, shared experience of KURO HK staff, living and working with other EVS volunteers and new experiences while working in partner organizations. The language impact was quite impressive on Sheela as well. At the beginning of the project she barely understood English, but in the end of the project she was perfectly active in communication in English and also basic of Czech communication, especially with children. Impact on our target group (local volunteers and local community) is ensured by activities undertaken and presence of the volunteer herself. Being international volunteer in Hradec Kralove, especially with such challenging migrant background as Sheela had, is still something unusual and most of meetings with locals result in surprise or questions about international volunteering and EVS. Presentations about own culture and country created and conducted by volunteer on public help to strengthen this impact. Her help with development ICT strategy for KURO HK had an immediate impact on KURO´s target group by making access to them easier and opening more ways to disseminate activities of KURO HK and its current and future EVS volunteers.
