description of organisation

Centre of leisure time Luzanky (SVC Luzanky) is regional organization formed by the Region of South Moravia. Our goal is to offer free time activities for people of all the age and social groups. Luzanky has existed for more than 65 years and it’s the oldest and also the biggest leisure time centre in the Czech Republic. Luzanky is formed by 11 centers situated in different parts of the city, mainly suburbs. We Offer about 600 courses and hobby groups for more than 11 000 participants every year. During the school year we organize about 400 different events, we organize clubs of different topics and interests and offer number of educational programmes for schools. Every summer we organize summer camps and various courses for children, youth and adults. Our clients can choose from wide range of activities – arts, crafts, sciences, sports, outdoor activities, music and theater festivals, exhibitions, competitions etc. They can visit regular courses (60-120 minutes lasting meetings weekly) or come occasionally. Each of our centres-branches is little bit different, but usually there are several internal pedagogues (from 2 to 20), external workers and Czech volunteers running everyday programmes. Each of the working place is different according to the locality and character of the main activities. Volunteers will be working in a small teams with closest colleagues – there are 3 – 4 pedagogues in the branches hosting volunteers. Even though we are working with all the age groups - from mothers with toddlers to seniors – volunteers will work mainly with the kids and teenagers. They can take part in morning programmes for school classes, regular courses in the afternoon (working with closed group of 10 – 15 children or youngsters of more or less same age) or youth-clubs, where the number and characteristic of the participants differs every time. Luzanky also coordinate EVS volunteers in other organisations in Brno - generally these are organisations focused on education (including environmental education), culture (including culture of minorities) or work with youth and children. We are also open to cooperate with other new non-profit organisations. Brno, the city where Luzanky is based, is the second largest city in the Czech Republic with about 400 000 inhabitants. There is number of universities and thanks to the high number of students (almost 100 000) the cultural life is very rich. There is always lot of possibilities to visit exhibitions, concerts, theater, to do different kinds of sports etc. Brno is becoming more and more multicultural, also thanks to Erasmus and other foreign students. There are also other EVS volunteers in Brno and the region and number of events for English speaking people throughout the year. You can find different minorities and cultural communities in Brno, including large Roma community. More information about Brno you can find for example here: Luzanky host EVS volunteers for long-term projects, usually for 12 months, starting in October and finishing in September next year (according to school year).
