Background and context of the overall project:
The project is important for community, for organization and also for the volunteer. The volunteer can implement his ideas, based on the competences and opportunities of the organization. The project helps the members of the organization to learn and use the knowledge from the volunteer in their own work. The members will give contribution to the development of the volunteer.
It is for sure that the initiative and willing of the volunteer will enrich the internal culture of the organization through new activities and events. Involvement of foreign volunteers help to decrease empathy and self-expression, to practise and develop language skills. New ideas and perspectives contribute the development of new activities, solutions and new methodologies.
The project is important for the community because it gives the local people change to widen their knowledge, to learn and get new experiences through contact with other cultures. The volunteer can make the community´s life better and create various recreational activities in different organizations. These activities can be related to sport, culture, youth work, environment and education. The volunteer can help to develop the entire culture of the city.
