Start date: May 4, 2015, End date: Sep 3, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

1. THE AIMS OF THE PROJECT : The project “Volunteers, unemployed, students and people with disabilities together looking for their place in the labour market in Europe.” is going to be realized in municipality of Milicz also most of the activities will take place in Milicz. It is a small city with 15 000 citizens located in the Lower Silesia region in Poland. According to the project volunteers will work in three host organisations: Association of Disabled Children ( Workshops of Occupational Therapy – working with adults and the rest of the group of young children from 3 to 18 years old ), in community of Milicz (Cultural and Sport Centres, club-rooms around,schools, libraries, swimming pool, gym, fitness centre, Centre of Local Activities) in the county of Milicz ( high schools, ice ring, “Orlik” playgrounds, recreational bay, bicycle roads, the House of Local Aid, the Centre of Education, Centre of Ecological Education). The wide range of potential work places for volunteers can simplify inclusion of young people into decision making process by the end of their work. We would like to create the opportunity for the volunteer to make the decision about  the workplace after visiting those places. We would like them to decide on the each stage of our project about where they want to work and how long for. Another advantage of this approach is the possibility to increase the number of competences, skills and abilities gained from those places during their EVS( even if the activities are not going to be their favourites ). Due to that one of the main aims will be realized - increase chances of volunteers on the labour market by the end of the project as volunteers will learn flexibility and will see many directions of their career development. For example during the Workshops of Occupational Therapy the volunteers will gain the knowledge which can be transferred to the disabled people as well. They will learn elementary carpentry, gardening, how to make specific decorations and even how to organize the work in the kitchen and they will get the knowledge how to work with disabled as a result having a competence to be a caretaker for disabled and sick. 2.
