The Brandenburgische Sportjugend (BSJ; Sports Youth Brandenburg) is an independent working youth organisation in the 'Sports Federation Brandenburg'. Its members are children and teenagers as well as their youth representatives who are organized in more than 2.500 sporting-clubs. It counts more than 137 thousand members under the age of 27. Therefore it is the largest youth association in the state of Brandenburg. The 'Brandenburgische Sportjugend' offers numerous projects regarding sport, youth-work and social-youth-work The ''Brandenburgische Sportjugend'' is going to act as the coordinating organisation in this project. The ''LSB SportService Brandenburg gGmbH'' was set up in August 2004 as a 100% subsidiary of the Sports Youth Brandenburg within the Sports Federation Brandenburg. The organization's tasks are the acquisition of Kindergartens and after school care organizations and providing them a profile of an exercise and movement oriented institution. Currently there are 9 institutions (7 Kindergartens and 2 after school centers) under the supervision of ''LSB SportService Brandenburg gGmbH'', from which 5 Kindergartens are in Potsdam. ''LSB SportService Brandenburg gGmbH'' is going to act as receiving organisation. The project foresees to host 4 volunteers from Poland, Turkey, Russia and Ukraine in sport and health oriented Kindergartens in Potsdam for a period of 12 months. The Kindergartens are situated in Potsdam that is the capital of the Federal State Brandenburg and which is positioned as widely ramified island in the middle of well wooded Havelsees-chain. The project foresees the integration of the volunteers in the "on the move and health orientated" program of the Kindergarten by supporting the pedagogues in their daily activities. Through daily work volunteers gain insight into the concept of the sport and health oriented Kindergartens, help pedagogues with on the move exercises, communicate with children and lead them to the better consciousness for the health. Also, they have opportunity to organize their own projects, e.g. about their own country, culture, traditions, etc. The project is expected to offer the volunteer several non-formal and intercultural learning opportunities, as well as, learning-by-doing experiences. Plenty of skills can be learned in the field of of children education and spare time and outdoor activities through sport. Project aims to develop the sense of initiative, creativity, ability to plan and organize, proactive attitude and independent work. By participating in the project young people improve their competences, learn new skills, develop their personality, as well as, increase their employability.
