Project/Event Management volunteer
This EVS placement will be interesting for those who have experience and/or significant interest in organizing events and coordinating projects. It refers both to local personal development events and workshops ‘Life Potential’ does for the benefit of local community and international Erasmus+ youth exchanges and training courses. The volunteer will also be encouraged to implement a personal idea either as a short-term or long-term initiative in Zagreb.
We give you the opportunity to learn:

• promote international opportunities and prepare Croatian participants for going abroad;
• learn about Erasmus+ funding and write your own project in KA1;
• assist in organizing youth exchanges and training courses in Croatia;
• use creativity and personal development tools on a daily basis.
Both volunteers will be involved in the following activities:
Active networking with local NGOs – volunteers will be exploring the network of local NGOs and get engaged in active contact with them to understand their missions and activities. They will have the opportunities to explore potential for mutual cooperation of ‘Life Potential’ and other NGOs, as well as bring their creative ideas concerning cooperation.
Promotion of volunteering – EVS volunteers will be in charge of PR related to projects for youth and promotion of volunteering. They will be keeping a blog about their volunteering experience and learning outcomes, as well as promote the importance and value of volunteering through other media as well.
Personal projects – volunteers will have an opportunity to realize their own projects in the fields of their interests in order to develop their sense of initiative and entrepreneurship and competences to learn, as well as other competences relevant to specific projects.
