Before coming to Ivancice you ought to get an insurance card. It will be from Cigna Company. Your sending organization will help you to apply for it; just don’t forget to ask them about all details. After, you will get a letter by post. There will be a login and password. On the web-site you will login to your account and print a PDF version of your card. Print it and always take it with you.
During 3 days after arrival you must go to the Foreign police (Brno). Some of our colleagues will go with you, so no worries. There you will get a stamp with your address. If you are not from EU country – you must apply for long-term stay from 90 days to 14 days before ending the long-term visa.
Every week you will have common meetings with other volunteers and workers. Also it is possible that meetings with leaders you will have during the week individually.
You will do activities and tasks according to the Volunteering Agreement. There are a lot of different activities, especially in Spring and Autumn and other months are not so full. During months with fewer activities, when the work is flexible and irregular, your own ideas, actions and activities are welcomed. Every month you will get your own workplan for other month. Some activities must be changed according to actual situation and the activities can be planned from one day to another too. So you must be flexible and a timekeeper.
1/ The volunteer will perform an activity that includes pedagogical activities in the following areas of interest:
• regular interest groups (sport, creative, dance, media, …)
• occasional events for the public
• camps and stays
• educational and adaptation programs for schools
• spontaneous and preventive activities in youth clubs
• activities of youth information center and media studio
• activities of children centre
A volunteer can combine activities according to his or her own interests – media, sport, creation, dance, project activity, work with small children, work in youth clubs, etc.
2/ The volunteer within the strategic EVS will be integrated into activities in cooperation with associated organizations in the microregion Ivančicko, Krumlovsko and Kahan. The volunteer will participate in annual events such as the Microregion Festival (Municipalities), the Restaurant Day (associations) and the European Day of Languages (Schools). These actions are intended as complementary activities to enhance the systemic impact. These actions reach a large number of people and are therefore suitable for promoting volunteering, EVS and Erasmus+.
3/ Other activities that the volunteer will do are: Czech language teaching, creation of own projects/ miniprojects/events/programs, promotion of EVS and Erasmus+ program, participation in educational seminars, creation of media spots, promotion and decoration of the building.
During your EVS you will prepare some miniproject. Can be something that you like, that you are interested in, some knowledge that you want to share through workshops, some action/event for public, for other volunteers, also. By this action you can uncover your own step. You can inspire by other volunteers. More information and inspiration about the miniprojects you can get it on Mid-term meeting.
As usual you should work 30 hours a week but schedule could be corrected by the organization and activities. It could be possible to work some more hours during one day and take a rest during other day. You have 2 days per one month as a holiday. For example if your project is 5 months – you have 10 days of holidays.
In the very end of each month you should fill in a form about your working hours. The best advice – to write your working hours every day, because it would be hard to remember what did you do last week. Time that you spend in on-arrival training and midterm meeting will be counted as working hours and time spent together with mentor and Czech teacher is counting as working time too. It is possible that one month you will have less hours and other month you will have more hours. It depends on the activities in the month. During Autumn and Spring are a lot of activities then in Winter. Every month your project coordinator will count your working hours if you work a lot or less. But do not be afraid this is only for our control.
Every month you will get pocket money (4 €/day) the 1st day of month, and money for food (190 CZK/day = 7 €/day) between the 4th and 5th day of the month. You get money for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack and you will cook all the food.
During your first weeks in EVS you should attend an on-arrival training session where you will meet other EVS volunteers from all over Europe. The National Agency will send an invitation to you and your project coordinator. After some months, approximately when half the project time is up, you will attend a mid-term meeting.
You will attend a language course. From the beginning of EVS you will learn with the professional. It is planned 120 min/per week.
You will live together with other 5 volunteers. You will live in the building of your organization in one corridor – 6 rooms, 1 kitchen, showers and toilets are common. It means that you have to share responsibilities for cleaning and other things. You also can agree on some rules of your common living. Every volunteer will get the document of Accomodation rules. It is very important to be quiet after 22:00 (10 p.m.) and before 8:00 (8 a.m).
You will create/do an educational plan – what you would like to learn here. So, before your EVS please think: what could be interesting for you here? EVS is great opportunities to show your creativity and learn how take an initiative.
