The project foresees to host 3 volunteers from Sweden, Turkey and Ukraine in sport and health oriented Kindergarten in Potsdam and in sport and health oriented Kindergarten and after school care center in Brandenburg an der Havel for a period of 12 months. The Kindergartens and after school care center is supervised by LSB SportService Brandenburg gGmbH, that was set up in August 2004 as a 100% subsidiary of the Brandenburgische Sportjugend. Organization's tasks are the acquisition of Kindergartens and after school care centers and providing them a profile of an exercise and movement oriented institution. LSB SportService Brandenburg gGmbH is our partner who will give support in the impementation of the EVS projects in the receiving organisations.
The project foresees the integration of the volunteers in the "on the move and health orientated" program of the Kindergartens and after school care center, which was developed by the Brandenburgische Sportjugend in co-operation with the Potsdam University. A new concept plans to fight motorial and development deficits at early child stage. Through everyday work and by supporting the pedagogues in their daily activities, 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, independent work and raise awareness about the issues at European level. By participating in the project young people improve their competences, learn new skills, develop their personality, as well as, increase their employability.
