Volunteers for development
Start date: Mar 1, 2015, End date: Mar 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Petrklíč help o.s. is an organization that has been focusing on multicultural topics for many years. We create a multicultural center, organize public cultural events, meetings with traveler’s and volunteers from other towns and cities etc. We believe that being involved in European voluntary service will help us reach our goals and develop our organization. Volunteers will help to strengthen the multicultural aspect of our activities and bring their own initiative as well. Our motivation to host volunteers is clear - our main aim is to work with multicultural topics in general. We want to make use of multicultural potential of our region, where two cultures – Polish and Czech – meet. At the same time our location is dealing with stereotypes on daily basis. We would like the volunteer to be an example of another culture and to show that there is a lot to gain from experiencing new culture. Above all we are looking forward to work with volunteer’s own ideas. In the past we organized international youth exchange called Backpack journalism and coordinated international projects (e.g. Visegrad four). Since the very beginning we’ve been cooperating with volunteers as an inherent part of our organization. At the moment we are hosting one volunteer from Poland whom we consider a very important element enriching our multicultural environment. Our organization is based in Česky Těšín – a border city with Poland and close to Slovak border. It is a fortunate location that brings positive aspect to our community. The aim of the project is to strengthen European feeling of Český Těšín and its neighborhood and to support the emergence of Transnational voluntary foundation and Multicultural center Laja. Project applies to countries involved in the program and neighboring countries. We plan to involve our volunteer in activities that will be conducted within other projects, such as project on human rights, community gardens or english library. Volunteer will become part of the above mentioned. We expect that as a result of our activities the awareness of other cultures among wider public will arouse as well as multicultural education in this region.
