We are looking for two volunteers, one form Portugal and one from Ireland. Volunteering in our organization is about working in youth clubs. It is focused mostly on youth with fewer opportunities, Romas and children on the street. It is about helping them, create and organize leisure time with meaningful activities, animation of some activities, supporting them, play with them and work on social services field. Volunteering here is also about helping with visibility in our NGO and our activities.
We are seeking volunteers who are active, creative, open- minded and motivated to work with youth and children.
Volunteers do not require previous experience with youth work or work in a non-profit organization, but the basis for us is their interest in this work. For us, it is also important, but not decisive, the usability of the volunteer in his region or in the sending organization after returning from EVS.
Volunteers require at least a basic knowledge of English, because most of our colleagues, employees, speak it. An important condition in the profile is the willingness to learn the Czech language, which will be a great advantage for volunteers in their later work with us.
