Serving - Sharing - Mutual Understanding
Start date: Jun 17, 2014, End date: Aug 31, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project “Serving - Sharing - Mutual Understanding“ was focused on social dialog, creativity and culture and work with youth through non formal learning and activities in local comnunity of Nesvady. It focused on meaningful spending of leisure time of children and youth too. The project supported the development of prosocial activities in village Nesvady and its surrounding. It gave chance to local disadvantaged community in Nesvady to improve their life quality and social inclusion. Project took places in Nesvady village in NGO YMCA Nesvady, Slovakia. Volunteers spent here 12 months during their EVS (July 2014 – June 2015). They worked in the team of experienced youth workers and local volunteers, and also individually on their own projects. They had the possibility to work in various areas. Their main service description was implementation of new activities in community centre for children and young people from local community who are on the edge of integration due to various circumstances (social, health, economic...). They helped to run street work with disadvantaged kids and helped tutoring Roma kids in afterschool club. Volunteers also started completely new activities: workshops and free time clubs in primary school depending on their talent and initiative (sports, handy crafts, language club, presentations, discussions...). They also took part in clubs which we already run (open space club for small kids and teenagers, club for mothers with children). All activities of the project supported intercultural dialogue and social inclusion. Part of the work took place in new YMCA Community centre, Primary school and in YMCA office – they were responsible for PR and making posters and brochures. Volunteers visited language and digital competences course and they had possibility to attend trainings about youth work. Volunteers had many possibilities to get know the children and young people through regular activities but also during special events (camps, trainings, one day events, meetings). During their free time they made new friendships with local YMCA volunteers (around 30 young people) and other inhabitants – watching movies, doing sports together, visiting, sharing... They were challenged to realize in praxis how serving – sharing – and mutual understanding enriches the life!
