Project description

In our project, the volunteer will be all the time in contact with children and young people. S/he will launch, lead and follow several activities. These ones can be various and will depend of his/her ideas, wishes and skills. They will always suppose a democratic participation of the children who have the right to choose and make proposals. Usual activities in the Adventure Playground are: Artistic workshops (painting, sculptures, serigraphy…); Creative/participative workshops (cooking, sewing, handicraft, shed buildings, storytelling, wild plants preparations…); Games (outdoor games, sport games, table games…); Outdoor activities (nature discovering, gardening…). The volunteer will also help us in the maintenance of the Playground (small reparations, painting, grass cutting). S/he will also help us when we’ll participate in special events and/or organise punctual projects with other partner organisations: carnival, city fest, shed symposium, international work camp.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

In Liège the volunteer will have his/her own “studio” where s/he will live alone. This apartment is in the same building where a worker of the Adventure playground lives. The apartment is 3 kilometres far from the city centre. To arrive to the adventure playground and to the city centre in general, the volunteer will use the public transportation or, if s/he prefers to go by foot, s/he will have to walk more or less half an hour. S/he could also go by bike, riding more or less 15 minutes. The volunteer will receive a monthly allowance and will take care of the meals by her/himself.

Training during the project

When arrived in Belgium, the volunteer will participate in the on-arrival seminar and the mid-term evaluation organized by the French speaking National Agency.
