“You(th) Moving to Future: Volunteering in a Multicultural background Long term EVS 2016-17” is an amazing long term EVS Program organised in Rijswijk, The Netherlands. Our project is awarded as the best EVS projects in the Netherlands several times. This project aims to give volunteers an experience of European Voluntary Service promoting intercultural learning and working with children (often disadvantaged) and young people. Responsibilities are given to the volunteer, and through daily interaction with other (EVS) volunteers and living together with them, the experience is being shared and learned from.
Don Bosco is a Multi Cultural Youth Centre (Don Bosco Rijswijk) situated 2 km from the city centre of The Hague (Den Haag). This center celebrated 60 years of its existence. This Multi Cultural Youth Centre is a youth organization that has from 7000 to 8000 young and old visitors per year. It has a lot of activities for children and youth with special attention for free time activities and non-formal education. It also runs a lot of programs on local and international level, like prolonged school activities, kids education, community school (Bredeschool) activities, kids education, volunteers education and holiday programmes for children and youth, especially in the summer. On international level we have short term and long term youth exchanges and EVS experiences. In short it is an organization which is very active in involving many young people in programs which are run on national and international level.
The volunteers are expected to work with other staff members, volunteers and youth workers to carry out the program for the children and youth. Possible tasks of the volunteers will be to assist the children in different age groups in the overblijf (lunch break in a school for those who are coming to the Netherlands) and inorganising a big youth exchange in the summer.
