Project „Share Your Life in Community“ is focused on work with youth and children, inclusion, creativity and intercultural understanding. Its aim is to provide meaningful spending of leisure time which helps to healthy development of youth and children leading to personal integrity, strengthen inclusion in community through club and terrain services and prosocial activities which are provided in community centre. It also aims to support own initiatives and personal engagement in community by using their own talents, skills and creative ideas. All activities of the project are planned for 2 volunteers (2 UKR).Project takes places in Nesvady village in NGO YMCA Nesvady, Slovakia. Volunteers will spend here 12 months during their EVS (September 2016 – August 2017). They will work in the team of experienced youth workers and local volunteers, and also individually on their own projects where they can develop their personal and professional profile in various areas. Their main service description would be implementation of new activities in community centre for children and young people which increase quality and cultural benefits in local community. The services will strengthen cohesion and inclusion in our society (socially, economically and healthy disadvantaged and endangered individuals or groups). Activities will reach new focus groups and they will widen possibilities of work and services for community. Volunteers will run new activities (lectures and free time activities at primary school by using their potential and talents – creative, sport, PC, musical, language workshops). They will take part in club aimed to independence in civic literacy and integration, in particular for young people at risk of social exclusion.They will also take part in clubs which we already run (open space club for small kids and teenagers), they will take part in summer and winter camps as leaders. All activities of the project support intercultural dialogue and inclusion, non formal education, personal development and competences on the side of volunteers and also in local community. Part of the work will take place in YMCA Community centre, Primary school and in YMCA office – they will be responsible for PR and making posters and brochures. Volunteers will visit language and digital competences course and they will have possibility to attend trainings about youth work. Volunteers will have 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 can make new friendships with local YMCA volunteers (around 30 young people) and other inhabitants – watching movies, doing sports together, visiting, sharing... By the topic „Share Your Life in Community“ they will be motivated to personal responsibility on the life of community, what prosper to both parts – to active young citizen and also to community.
