EVS vacancy in Germany
Location: Rheda-Wiedenbrück, Germany
Period: 21/08/2017 – 29/06/2018
Deadline: 24 April 2017
“Basketball through Europe and the world” is DJK Rheda’s project. The organisation is looking for two cheerful volunteers to join their project in Germany. Just take a look and come to Germany. We are waiting for you!
DJK Rheda and its project, “Basketball through Europe and the world”, are not only responsible for the athletic training and activity of their members, but also for the personality formation and experience abroad of their children and adolescents. The association promotes the open-mindedness and the awareness of Europe of its members. Through the Palamós Freunde (a departure of the club, who is responsible for the annual youth exchange), and the City Partnership with Palamós in Spain, the Association has already gained many years of experience in the process of European integration and the convergence of the partner countries. The association has also gained experience and worked closely with other coordinating organizations from Turkey, Spain, England and Latvia. Active and responsible persons of the association know the service by volunteers and European volunteers who have joined the association during their time in Germany in the past years.
The main focus of the association is youth work, disabled work and the care of international partnerships. This is also reflected in the various departments: basketball, wheelchair basketball, Palamós Freunde (responsible for the annual youth exchange), gymnastics and volleyball. The association has about 400 members from all age groups, nationalities and social environments. Not only in the number and variety of their members, but also in the diversity of its trainers and volunteers is the fact that the DJK offers a good environment for a volunteer.
The member of the association and former chairman Stephan Crass gained experience in receiving, coordinating and sending volunteers for almost ten years before he retired in his function as a department manager at the Reckenberg-Ems School of Adult Education. Our association member Fatma Diksu, born Yildiz, is a tutor in the Youth in Action volunteer service. She attended the training course in Istanbul in 2009 and then worked for the Reckenberg-Ems School of Adult Education as responsible person in charge of the volunteer and tutor, and is currently performing the same tasks at the city hall of Rheda-Wiedenbrück. The department head Basketball Özge Erüstün has already done a voluntary service in Spain in 2012 and the DJK Rheda has been closely connected with the sending organization El Girónes, youth office Girona (Spain) for many years.
Currently, the third European volunteer is active at DJK Rheda.
The main focus of the association is youth work and the care of international partnerships. In this friendly athmosphere the volunteers will be able to participate in several activities.
– will be involved in Basketballtrainings with children and teenagers as trainers or assistant trainer
– will take part in an international partnership, which is being done since more than 25 years. They should help and actively propose serveral activities.
