Place

The activity last for 12 months and is situated within Tricity and surroundings (Tricity=Trójmiasto – Gdynia, Sopot, Gdańsk) area, which
is quite famous because of its tourist facilities. The volunteer will be based in the one placement however there is a plan to visit for 1-2
days other placements in order to see the others project and maybe find new ideas.

There are 9 EVS volunteers all together however they live in 3 separate flats. In each flat are tree rooms where 3 volunteers stay so that
each volunteer has got their own bedroom and shared kitchen, bathroom with other EVS volunteers. The flats are situated quite close to
the means of transport. The volunteers are getting ticket for the transport to get from the flat to the workplace. Apart from pocket money,
they are getting also money for food each month.

During working time the volunteer is not allowed to drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes.

Target group

Youth in age 5 -14year old
– from difficult backgrounds, were families having problems with alcohol, drugs addiction, poverty, prison, unemployment, violence, illiteracy, often incapacity of life,
– being in families were are many children in a small flats where is no conditions to learn, sleep, have fun etc.
– having problems in learning,
– in general not speaking in English,
– having emotional problems, problems with communication,
– often hyperactive, sometimes aggressive.

Above description might seem to be scary but they are good children who need attention, positive attention not the one which they often have at school. There, they are perceived as people without any chances to live in a “good way”. However our years of experience show that those children and youth is a group are very active, they know what is team. They are willing to act, play together etc. We see the results of the therapy, of our work if only those children get the chance, if you believe in them they are able to act and create something good. They just need attention of other person, good warm words.

Tasks of volunteers

We would like the volunteer to join the workshop team, show his/her presence, make impact on the place, that the workplace feels that has got an EVS volunteer! J
