YOUth for school club
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: Oct 31, 2016
The project called "Youth for school club" is a European Voluntary Service project organized by a non-profit organization Parents of Meaningful school - civic association, which is established at primary school Lyčkovo Square in Prague 8 - Karlín. We have decided to carry out the project in order to give a new dimension to our work in the organisation, to gain experience with an international project, to get engaged to work with volunteers and mainly to enrich the running and free-time activities of the school and the school club, in which we will host a volunteer coming from Spain for a period of 11 months starting on September 1st 2015, ending on July 31st 2016.
Our main goal is to equip a young person with competencies of a youth worker that will enable him to get better employed in the labor market and provide him with a safe space for self-realization. We will support his mobility, we will improve volunteer´s language skills, we will bring intercultural learning into the project background and thus we will encourage intercultural learning and intercultural dialogue. We will gain experience with implementation of an international project for our organisation and deepen cooperation between organizations working in the field of youth.
The volunteer will become part of the team organizing leisure activities for pupils of the school and school club. His task will be to get acquainted with the environment, get engaged gradually in the implemented activities and to bring ideas and suggestions into upcoming programs for children and youth. Mainly the methods of non-formal education will be used during the project.
The project will have an impact on the organization, elementary school and school club in terms of their involvement in international projects supported by the European Union for youth mobility and involvement in volunteering activities. The biggest impact will be on the volunteer herself and the children as well as for workers of the school institution with whom he will be in daily contact. The volunteer will have the opportunity to learn how to work with children and youth, so that her work has a positive impact on their development. Thanks to volunteer the children will get the opportunity to get to know a person coming from a different cultural environment and improve their foreign language skills.
When organizing information sessions we also expect the impact on local and regional level, when deepening awareness of the general public about international projects supported by the European Union. We will spread results of the project towards similar institutions to our organization established in elementary school.
