This EVS project is developed to allow young people to learn about educational systems and also to allow them to contribute to the building of various systems for youth. This EVS project will give our volunteers the opportunity to work in an environment that is open to new ideas and welcomes initiatives from the volunteers. The volunteers will work with youth workers and educators to develop workshops and training courses and also youth projects. They will interact with youth and adults and discover the needs with regard to education in our local society and help develop workshops and training curses which will optimise the learning outcomes for the various fields. They will interact with youth in the local community and discover problems that youth face today and help the organisation develop youth projects which can offer the young participants of their youth exchanges gain more from them. The volunteers will work with educators utilizing one line education platforms and help in the development of new online courses and also contributing to the methods used in online education.
Our organisation wants to help provide more opportunities for all our locals and with this project the volunteers will be able to deal with real life issues and will be able to contribute to methods and solutions for these problems and will be able to help our people develop systems to help in education on a formal and non-formal basis.
Part of the project will be to learn about new cultures but also to teach the locals about their different cultures. A1: 05/01/2016 - 04/07/2016 A2 05/07/2016 - 04/01/2017
Countries & Participants: Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Spain
I improved my entrepreneurship skills during simulation activities and workshops (simulating how life in a community works and what a business person means to be, creating one object/service with materials from all participant countries; creating one magazine dedicated to youth). During these activities, I had to come up with innovative and creative ideas that finally were turned into actions. I was able to plan and manage on time our tasks in order to have a good output with our magazine and video. I learned how to take initiative in different working groups and I improved my creativity skills throughout the entire project.
