Partner Search for APPROVED European Solidarity Corps
Hello Dear Eurodesk friends,
We are contacting now because we have an approved European Solidarity Corps - Volunteering Project: "Youth, Environment and Adventure" that is going to take place in Porto - Portugal, for 10 months (starts on the 1st of April 2020 and finishes in the 31st of January 2021). If, through your contacts, you have anyone interested to come, please let us know as soon as possible. We have two places (two volunteers), coming from Programme Countries.
Here is a summary of the project:
"Taking into the community of Avintes and Vila Nova de Gaia, the second largest district of Portugal, it is very important to draw children's and young people's attention to the importance of preserving and protecting nature.
The volunteers will help us in various activities related to the environmental and "non-formal" education by practising radical sports and organising many outdoor activities, they will develop a project that aims to draw youngsters with less opportunities and in risk of social expulsion closer to nature and by the help of the non formal education methods will try to promote the social and educational integration, the volunteers will give our project new perspectives and at the same time they will have the possibility to interact with the local community and gain the best voluntary experience ever."
Some of the proposed activities for the volunteer:
- Summer Camps;
- Nature School and Youth Occupational Center;
- Monitoring nature sports;
- Helping in the preparation of materials for activities;
- Helping in nature activities and spreading the knowledge about environment protection;
- Games in Nature, Trekking, hiking;
- Organising environmental activities;
- Organising own workshops connected with sport and environmental, or others..."
The volunteer will be provided with lodging, alimentation, paid travels, language course, pocket money and insurance. All of that costs are covered by the ERASMUS + Programme.
