The child and youth union “Liepajas Jaunie Vanagi” (Liepajas Young Falcons) was founded in 1993. Members are between 5 and 30 years old and are mostly young people with fewer opportunities – most of them come from low income families. Our aim is the promotion and protection of rights and interests of children and the encouragement of active and creative youth development. Liepajas Jaunie Vanagi supports young people in taking initiative and realising their ideas. Together with the different age groups we organise international meetings, sport days, camps, educational activities etc.
We want that young people become empowered to become active in the society, to spend their leisure time as funny and productive as possible, to have an international spirit and to be aware that children have the right to take decisions.
Your main task will be prepare, plan, organize and most important – lead indoor and outdoor activities for local kids and new leaders academy for teenagers. What it means in reality? Its max 38 hours of work per week. Its 6 hours per day. Keep in mind its Latvian summer. And summer in Latvia is very different then summer in your countries Big chance of rain, cold and almost no sun. Also you will have a chance to teach kids your language. All activities is going to be organized in non-formal way, using a lot of fun and creativity.
So you need to prepare program, run it and support each other! You will work in team with 12 EVS volunteers from Spain, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Portugal and also together with local volunteers. This will be done in first days, during on-arrival training. For latvian language lessons we will agree concrete time which will be better for all of you.
