Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for volunteer for European Solidarity Corps placement called “MEDIART” for 12 months, which will take place from September 2020 in Serres, Greece.
The ESС project will take place at PRAXIS which is a youth Greek NGO which has activities in culture, media and human rights fields. Since 1995 it offers a broad spectrum of cultural, media & communication activities. The organization co-operates with the municipalities, universities, UNESCO and other institutions; maintains a strong interregional network that allows the realization of internships, seminars, ESC and youth projects. The intercultural experiences and acquired competences open up young peoples’ horizon. PRAXIS offers opportunities to express their creativities, spreading all interesting information for them and for their future life and employment.
The Profile of the volunteer:
“MEDIART” ESC project recognizes the needs of the local community and offers opportunities to young people to express their creativity, and develop their skills for their future life and employment by promoting via media the “International days messages”. MEDIART needs volunteers who actively participate, support and bring in their fresh new ideas, promoting cultural diversity to the local community of Serres.
PRAXIS is looking for volunteers who can work with all social media, promoting social messages and the “international days” campaigns (via Facebook, writing articles in blogs, creating Youtube). So, volunteers have to bring with them their laptop at least with Microsoft programme.
The volunteer’s tasks are the following:
- Promotion and support of national and international campaigns (mostly connected to United Nations and their sub-organizations)
- Radio station (30% work). (spots, broadcasts and technical support, sound system control) The Volunteer will gain valuable experience working with media. Volunteer’s tasks are in control sound system during the journalistic radio-broadcast on the Master Sound control. Every day the volunteer has his/her personal radio broadcast. Every volunteer creates and records a personal radio spot to promote and advertise his/her broadcast.
- Management of the organizations various social network channels
- Creation of videos related to Human Rights and related campaigns
- Coverage of events (videos, photos, articles, interviews, radio reportages)
- International web- campaign promoting social and human values (40% of work). For the theme of every campaign, the volunteer receives all this information some weeks earlier. When the volunteer receives all data links about “THE INTERNATIONAL DAY” he/she has to inform about the subject and then works together with the professionals in order to have brain-storming discussion.
- Cooperation with schools (5% of work). The activities mainly take place within the school, with the idea of creating links between schools and the organisation. But also many school classes are visiting the Radio station by many occasions (i.e. International Radio day, promoting their school projects).
- Leisure time using computers in Info-center of PRAXIS with the young refugees from the local refugee’s camp, teaching English or German, other creative activities, cinema nights, group games, outdoor activities. Outdoor activities (every Friday afternoon- if the weather is ok) or indoor activities play UNO, or computer games… or any other idea is very welcome…. (Each one volunteer will choose at least two refugees, who with them will develop more friendly /fraternization contacts & relations.)
