The Children’s Village is a youth welfare institution who cares for children and youngsters as legal guardian. The target group are children and young people in a state of social need, who cannot live in their original family and are therefore sheltered in the Children’ s Village by the youth welfare. Due to the children’s socialization conditions which are unfavourable to the development of the personality they are disadvantaged in many fields, such as personal development, integration in the school, ability to take part in group activities etc.
Around 40 children from 7-18 years coming from different provinces live in the children’s village. The staff consists of professional workers such as for example e.g. psychologists, teachers, social workers, youth workers, etc.
The children’s village is located 5km from Graz. In the village there is swimming pool, football ground, volley ball ground, playground, artificial lawn for playing small-scale football or basketball etc. The nearest public transport is 2 minutes away.
The volunteer will live in a shared flat in Graz and take the public transport to go to children’s village. The working hours of the volunteer will mainly be in the afternoon.
Tasks and activities
– Support the daily activities of children together with the educators: educational support (accompaniment to school, homework help), support the maintenance of the environments (collaboration in organizing the home and help during lunch and dinner time).
– Organization and development of leisure activities: entertainment, games, sports, music sessions, visits to museums, etc. (all the creative ideas of the volunteers are greatly appreciated).
-The role of the volunteer mostly consists of introducing the intercultural aspect in the daily life of the children and young people. To a certain extent we also want him/her to act as a role model to open up a scenario for the future which transcends the borders of the municipality, of the well-known “comfort zone”.
-The volunteer could take a supporting role in developing new perspectives for the future for the children/youngsters.
-The volunteer will bring new aspects into our daily life by contributing a foreign language (his/her mother’s tongue) and his/her personal intercultural background, which will enrich the lives of the children and young people.
