EVS @ BETA Austira – with unemployed youth
Location: Wörgl, Austria
Period: 03/09/2017 – 01/09/2018
Deadline: 26 March 2017
This EVS project will involve you as a volunteer at the organisation Volkshilfe Tirol in the project BETA for unemployed youngsters 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.
The EVS volunteer will be involved in the one-year-development process of the young persons who are supported by BETA. The volunteer will get to know and participate in BETA’s work.
The volunteer should assist the youngsters in their preparation for working life and will get to know the working areas of BETA (assistance through educational support or job coaching…). The volunteer’s role is to support the trainer’s team in the daily work with the young clients – examples are: talking to the teenagers, helping them with easy work, especially when using the computers (e.g. writing CVs and job applications, research…), job application training, assist them in doing school exercises and training school subjects (Maths, German, English…). Furthermore, the volunteer could accompany the youngsters when they work in the gardening or in the sheltered workshops or internships. The volunteer can also implement special offers and activities for the youngsters.
