Host: BETA – Volkshilfe Tirol: http://www.volkshilfe.net/de/arbeit-und-integration/beta.html

Location: Wörgl, Austria

Deadline: 18/01/2015

Start: 01/07/2015

End: 30/06/2016


The EVS project “Youth4Work @ Wörgl” will involve you as a volunteer at the organisation Volkshilfe Tirol at the BETA in Wörgl in Tyrol, Austria.
BETA qualifies young people between 16 and 24 years for work and for finding a job. Most of the youngsters who come to BETA are school drop-outs, have attended special schools for people with learning difficulties, have achieved only poor school marks or very bad reports and they face difficulties in finding a job.
About 10 youngsters are employed at BETA for one year at the same time.

During this year they have the possibility to learn a lot of things and to acquire job qualifications for their future. Soft and hard skills are taught through working with wood, metal, doing gardening, in working as a caretaker or in fulfilling simple office duties. All these activities focus on the most realistic job situations; sometimes the youngsters even work as interns for real companies. They are also trained in applying for a job. The goal is that after this year the youngsters find an employment at a company where they have completed an internship or practical training during the year.
The EVS volunteer will work alongside the professionals at BETA in the areas that interest him/her the most.
