Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for volunteer for 1 European Voluntary Service placement called “Become a Volunteer! Change the World” for 06 months, which will take place from 01st December 2016 to 30thMay 2017 in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria.
Description of the project:
The volunteer will work in our office, supporting all our projects and initiatives, providing information to the local community about the EVS and Erasmus+ programs, holding presentations visiting every week the universities and schools in the region.
We are also Eurodesk multiplier, so the future volunteers will have the opportunity to explore the Eurodesk online database and provide information to local youth who are interested.
Also, each week the volunteers will have the chance to organize their own art/eco club, where they could present their nation, language, traditions, customs etc.
Also, if there are interested people in our city, the volunteers can organize a free language course as a social initiative to the local community.
The main job of the EVS volunteers will be to promote European mobility, to share their experiences with young people. They will represent our structure within forums, job fairs. Another main part of their work will be interventions at schools (from primary schools to university). Volunteer’s activities will be adjusted to one’s profiles and fields of interest, thus the project will result with high satisfaction of achieved learning outcomes.
The project already started and our current volunteers are working on several local projects together with some of our interns, high-school students and volunteers in our organization. One of the local initiatives is in the social house, working with orphans and Roma kids, teaching them English and organizing different games and activities to develop their creativity and skills.
Another local project is with 3 local high-schools and 2 universities, organizing presentations with local youth, raising awareness about Erasmus+ opportunities, volunteering, EVS Program, etc.
Also, we involve the volunteers who are interested, in the project development and implementation work, empowering them and giving them the chance to develop their own project ideas.
We try to involve our volunteers in all our local and international projects, as giving them the chance to improve their personal and inter-personal skills by the method: learning by doing.
