"NEW SKILLS, NEW CHANCES", part 2
Start date: May 1, 2016,
End date: Dec 31, 2017
The project is developed for young people with fewer opportunities that are facing very difficult psychosocial situations, poverty, social exclusion, special needs and unemployment. Our aim is to work on the competences that will help young people in the process of inclusion into society and on the labor market. The short term EVS activities will be one part of a longer learning process that will provide long lasting effects. We want to enhance the personality development of young people through the empowerment based on non-formal learning and positive experiences, make their self esteem better, develop more efficient coping strategies and get over their prejudicies.Zavod Manipura from Slovenia will host 14 volunteers from Slovakia, Belgium, France, Italy, Estonia, Spain and Turkey for the period of 2 months. The volunteers will be able to join a wide spectrum of activities: they will help with the renovation of the house, building small wooden cottages, making simple furniture for the Youth Centre, taking care of the ecological garden and the animals... Next to the practical work they will help to organize and they will join the free-time activities for local children and youth like sport activities, playing games in the nature and other outdoor activities, different artistic activities and free playing time for children. They will do some work for the local community like helping elderly people, spending time with the disabled people and organize some activities for the children in the local kindergarten and primary school. The volunteers will also help to create the promotion materials for the Youth Centre and for EVS and take part in the promotion activities. There will be a very intense inter-cultural learning process because we will host volunteers from different countries at the same time.Four Slovene volunteers with special needs will go to the organization "Nadacia Krajina Harmonie" in Slovakia, where they will help to organize an international festival for the inclusion of people with disabilities.Two Slovene volunteers will spend July in the organization Ookull in Estonia. They will join the trekking, work on the ecological farm and attend the youth camp.Belgian organization Cirkus in beweging will also host 2 Slovene volunteers. They will help them to organize an international circus festival.Like every year, we will send 2 volunteers to Ireland, to the hosting organization Beyond 96 youth club. The volunteers will help to organize free time activities for the local children in July.
