Project description

Vaiņodes vidusskola invites 2 EVS volunteers to help with youth work in community. Although we have our approximate vision of work needed, we will appreciate freedom in managing the main task: to help boost our young people’s leadership, entrepreneurship and more active citizenship. We need new friends and leaders who like spending time with young people sharing with them their experience, knowledge, challenge, worries.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

Accommodation will be sufficient. First, youth hostel type separate rooms with a bathroom to share and a small kitchen, then there is a possibility to change either for a modest apartment or staying in the youth house if willing so. Breakfasts and lunches can be at school together with youth club. The closest big town is Liepāja, 60 km away, one of the most beautiful and cosy places in Latvia. The beach in Liepāja is another beauty, not to miss for outdoor events.

Training during the project

Media and News activities: working on digital youth newspaper, films, animation, blogs or vlogs. Drama and Dance activity with Vaiņode’s youngsters and high school students. There will be a great possibility to improve drama and theatre skills with real actors from Liepaja’s Theatre, to participate in performance, to improve public speaking and learn about emotional intelligence. Debating sessions. Assisting with European topics and experience. Creative workshop/ DIY crafts with young learners
