The role of the volunteer should mainly be to offer his/her special skills connected to and co-ordinated with the program and projects of Sutton ColdfieldYMCA and the local community. The volunteer has the possibility to be part of various projects and will have the opportunity to develop own projects and activities.
Activities could be:
meeting other residents, offering play activities for young children, connect and support with parents, assisting staff in project life skill lessons, organising free-time activities for young people like going to the cinema, going to disco, theatre etc, helping to plan and run social activities for young people, help to plan, organise and run events like summer/Christmas parties, charity events, concerts, talks etc...
We think that the European Voluntary Service aims to provide young voluntary workers with an intercultural learning experience and the opportunity to acquire many skills which will be useful for their social and professional integration.
Sutton Coldfield YMCA offers a variety of cultural and leisure-time activities, advice, support and help. We work closely together with other organisations in the local community. By hosting a volunteer, we want to make the volunteer aware of how valued their contribution to this work will be. We are offering a youth work/childrens programme for young volunteers, a training programme about cultural diversity/life skills for young people, a programme for young people with disabilities, a programme for young people in a caring role of either a parent or sibling . Further more we cooperate with the local churches and schools in several projects for children together. (including youth clubs)
Duration of service for the volunteers is 12 months, the project takes place in Sutton Coldfield (Birmingham UK)
The Centre national Information Jeunes and Sutton ColdfieldYMCA are commitment to prepare the logistic in order to send and received the volunteers ( travel, accommodation, insurance, safety and protection of participants, visa, social security, mentoring and support, preparatory meetings with partners etc.) according with the standards of the Erasmus + programme.
