Location: Kecskemét, Hungary

Period: 13/03/2017 – 12/03/2018

Deadline: 15 January 2017

Building on previous experiences with international volunteers we would like to provide new opportunities for young people and children in SOS Children’s Villages Hungary to enhance their integration into society, widen their horizon, meet new people, gain useful experiences while improving key competences. Having a volunteer from abroad gives an additional value to the everyday life and long-term development of the children in alternative care which they would not be able to gain otherwise.

We would like to recruit a volunteer who is able to express: empathy, dedication, creativity, good communication skills, ability to facilitate groups, ability to carry out small workshops, flexibility, teamwork, awareness of cultural diversity etc. It would be an advantage if the volunteer had some experience with a similar NGO or an organisation working with children with fewer opportunities.

Main objectives of the project are:
– to support the integration of the SOS children and youth coming from a difficult social background
– to enhance their belonging to a community (both on a local and on an international level)
– to improve their learning performance
– to increase their willingness to take initiative
– to be a more active participant first in their community and later on in the society
– to show and promote European values
– to improve their foreign language speaking skills
– organise and support voluntary projects and leisure time activities
– to enhance children’s intercultural awareness and to make them more familiar with other cultures – to bring the world closer to them
– to improve their different skills and competencies (e.g. self-expression through crafts, arts, dancing, painting etc.) that can also be useful at the time of entering the labour market
– provide disadvantaged youth with useful and up-to-date information about the job market in the area, (involving corporate partners)
– improve knowledge on European programs, mobility and job opportunities.

The volunteer will:
– take part in the everyday life of the SOS Children’s Village Kecskemét and youth facility
– tutor the children in school subjects and offer language workshops to them
– organise different outdoor activities, art workshops and excursions
– investigate the structure of the labour market in the area and provide learning opportunities for the children to familiarize themselves with different professions, involving corporate partners
– organise intercultural events
