Edela Eesti Arenuskeskus in cooperation with Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for volunteers for a project called “Europale” which will take place from 1st September 2013 until 1st March 2014 in Évora, Portugal!

There’s only 1 vacancy!

Brief summary of the project:  Omnis Factum Association presents the EVS project entitled "EUROPALE" meaning Alentejo in Europe in order to give the opportunity to four (4) young people from four (4) different countries of the European Union to develop a volunteer project with young people living in one of the most aged zone of Portugal.

The district of Évora will thus be benefited from the presence of volunteers who want, above all,  interact with the population in order to assist in the development of European citizenship, long forgotten in that community. It is intended that the youth interact with the volunteers in order to make present in their day-to-day, issues such as citizenship, participation, volunteering, intercultural, inter-generational dialogue, human rights, anti-discrimination, among many others. We also wanted the project to tap future European affairs, notably the European elections, because this was also the district where there was greater abstention in 2009.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to create and develop activities for the general population, such as informal meetings with young people, workshop, training courses, games, outdoor activities, sports, conferences, cultural events, among others.
In this project the participating countries are Portugal, Estonia, Czech Republic, Greece and Austria. We will have in this partnership a local host organization, which is the Municipio de Viana do Alentejo to help implement the project in the district of Évora.

Draft Work Schedule and responsibilities: the volunteers will work in several places such as public schools, local associations, Omnis Factum main house in Evora and the city hall of Viana do Alentejo. The plan is also to go to other places of the district but it's not yet confirmed because we need to know the possibility of other city's to have the volunteers.

Work time:
Maximum 35 hours weekly.
Daily agenda: 10:00 to 18:00
Free days: two days per every week. (Saturday, Sunday) The work hours are flexible depending on the volunteer’s and the instructor’s needs.
