EVS opportunity in Poland
Call for all motivated youngster from 18- 30 years old, who want to spend a year in Poland, learn Polish and meet other cultures.
Duration: 1 year
Exact dates: to be decided (between September 2016 and January 2017)
The main idea of this project is to bring back to youngsters in Kraków and Lesser Poland attitudes that are characteristic for youth: openness, spontaneity, joy, curiosity of the world – not closeness, radicalisation or fear from unknown. Thanks to this change of attitude we can contribute to preventing isolation, self-exclusion, lack of trust and rejection of diversity.
Aims of this project, involving 2 young volunteers from Spain and Macedonia (fewer opportunities) into the everyday work of Association Europe4Youth in Kraków and Lesser Poland, are:
– contributing to integration and cooperation between disconnected groups of young people coming from different backgrounds, religion, ethnicity,
– engaging different youngsters into common work for the public good,
– realization of full potential hidden in those youngsters, as well as in our young volunteers – participants of the proejct.
The project will be realized in different methods (street art, social media, video, workshops, meetings, mini-projects) offering full range of opportunities for volunteers to realize their passion, ideas and creativity expression. Volunteers will be supported, motivated and encouraged to discover themselves and planning themselves for the future. It will not be just realization of the mission of the project, but also huge project “me” for participating volunteers.
