Project description

Hoy os traemos una vacante para voluntarios europeos en nuestro país vecino Portugal que seguro a muchos os puede interesar. Una organización portuguesa busca un voluntari@ para participar en un proyecto de educación con niños. ¡No lo dudes y lánzate a vivir esta aventura para 2016! -The volunteer develops, according to his/her competencies/skills and knowledge, activities that fall within the existing departments of the association. He/she will also receive adequate language training. Thus the volunteer will be involved in supporting the Community School (with different locations throughout the region), providing support to the monitors and developing under their guidance the daily activities with children and young people (the time of study, arts, body language, science, computer, free time). The activities are developed in educational and cultural community spaces where we provide children and young people with various recreational and educational activities


Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The volunteer will work 33 hours per week and will have a free weekend (Saturday and Sunday). Eventually, some activities may be developed during the weekends, however, if this happens, it will be compensated with other two consecutive days during the week, agreed on mutually between the volunteer and the association. The volunteers will also be entitled to two days off per month, which will be taken according to their own interests and needs. – The AJD provides meals for the volunteer. – The host/coordinating organisation will also provide monthly subsidy (pocket money).


Training during the project

Upon arrival, the host/coordinating organisation will ensure that volunteers attend and arrival training and later a mid- term review session. During the performance of his/her tasks, the volunteer will receive support, guidance and supervision by the monitor / supervisor who is responsible for each activity. The host/coordinating organisation will ensure that volunteers have a free language training throughout the whole service. – For personal support, the volunteers will have a mentor they meet weekly throughout the service period. The mentor will assist with the integration
