EVS volunteer to attract youth via marketing

Volunteering projects

project description

The main goal of the project (EVS volunteer) is to attract more youth to the Vicki Brown House in ‘s-Hertogenbosch by organising activities such as Artistic assistance for children from 7 to 12 years and from 12 to 16 years. Creativity is used as an aid to convey feelings, fears or desires in a pleasant way. In this way, the Vicki Brown House tries to relate, understand, and place a thorough experience. During the meetings, the children make use of artistic means, such as drawing, painting and carpentry. Stories, poems and music, adapted to the age and interest of the child, support the assignments. Based on the work done, conversations are conducted, where the children listen to each other and recognize each other. The fellow contact is an important part of the meetings. For youth of 14-18 years other activities are organised, see
