Dates: September 2018 till July 2019.
Place: Vinstra and Ringebu, Norway.
Vinstra and Ringebu is in a rural part of Norway, approximately 3 hours from Oslo. A lot of the young people between 20 and 30 are leaving the area to get education and jobs. The youth work amongst teenagers is important to give good upbringing conditions in means of democracy, creativity and support. We believe that having this focus will also prevent alcohol use and bullying. This again may contribute to make good childhood memories and might affect their choice of settlement after ended education. We want them back!

We also cooperate with the «videregående skole» which is the school for youth from 16 to 19 years. The volunteers will in cooperation with the teachers assist language courses in their mother tongue to give the pupils the opportunity to practice what they learn.
We will study carefully all application and selected candidates will be invite for Skype interview. The selection of volunteers will take place in the coming weeks.
For the selection of the volunteers we will need:
– Europass CV with picture (made in the last month) with skype name included

We ask all candidates to send a specific letter of motivation – why they want to volunteer with us rather than just a general EVS one. The volunteer is chosen according to his/her motivation and interest to the project and to the activities. It will be paid special attention to cover letters.
