CommEUnicate! EVS project in Austria for 1 Spanish Volunteer

Jugendzentrum YOUZ Bad Ischl

Bad Ischl, Austria

1 , Closed

Project description

The approved project „CommEUnicate!“ will take place in Bad Ischl, a rural area amidst the mountains in Austria. The youth organisation “Jugendzentrum YOUZ” invites a young volunteer to become an active part at the youth center, work with young people from the area and accompany them in their everyday life for ten months. This volunteer will become an “ambassador” for his or her culture and impart cultural knowledge to local young people. In order to have a broader platform, the project will cooperate with a local community radio “Freies Radio Salzkammergut”: the volunteer will acquire basic skills to produce radio content and broadcast a number of radio shows about his or her cultural perspective, European experience and other youth-related topics. The volunteer will work about 25 hours at the youth center and 7 hours at the radio station. German language courses will be provided throughout the project.


Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The accomodation will be a flat in the city centre with own bathroom and small kitchen facilities and will be free of charge. Additionally to the pocket money, some money for food will be provided, as well as one warm meal per workday. The transport to and from Austria is mostly funded by the project, a small sum has to be paid by the volunteer. During the project, a bicycle will be provided.


Training during the project

German language learning opportunities will be provided during the project. All the skills needed for the work at the radio station and at the youth center will be acquired at the beginning of the project during various informal trainings.


Volunteer profile

Volunteer must be above the age of 18 and a first-time participant in EVS. No German language skills needed.
