Tasks of the volunteer:

Brief description of the service with SMART Foundation:

Each volunteer will have the opportunity to participate in planning and implementing activities within foundation’s ongoing projects, and will be encouraged and supported to implement their own initiatives in small communities within the city (work with pupils in schools, organizing activities for youth, neighborhood and social events, etc.) through which they will identify and strengthen their social interests and skills, will gain organizational and communication experience, and will practice the language.
The volunteers help the staff in all kinds of ways.

The tasks are generally carried out in the office, and consist amongst others out of creative tasks, organizational tasks, research tasks and working with communication media. The volunteers work very independently and with little supervision. Because the work of the volunteers is supportive in nature and because their workload is manageable, the volunteers have enough room for their personal projects.
We will work with our volunteers to find out what are their strengths, interests, skills, what are their wishes for further development, to reinforce their communication, project and administrative skills. We will encourage volunteers to use maximum of their imagination, practical skills, cultural background and to develop practical activities to ease the communication within communities they will be working with.

Descriprion of host organization: 

SMART Foundation is a nonprofit organization registered under the Law for non-profit organizations to operate in the public interest. Our main aim is to help people from different communities to improve their quality of life by developing and improving their social and “soft” skills, thus improving communication with the people around them – family, circle of friends, at work, etc. ., and with the surrounding world as a whole. Personal satisfaction, the successful implementation and social approval are prerequisites for emotional and mental health, and hence the formation of a healthy and active society.
