Association “Georgian Youth for Europe” is searching EVS Volunteers for approved project in Slovakia.
Please,if you are interested send me your CV and Motivation Letter:
Slovakian organisationis looking for suitable volunteers to join the project „Human in the country“ .
Project will take place in Slovakian countryside, village Prenčov, nearby the town Banska Stiavnica being for its great historical and natural value a part of UNESCO.
EVS could start from 1 September 2013.
The main themes of our project are sustainable lifestyle and arts.
We are focusing on following areas:
– Ecology and rural life (traditional ways of life in the village that lead towards more independent lifestyle: preparing wood for winter, making homemade food products, homemade ECO cleaners, eco building, etc.)
– Education and cultural events for children and general public (organizing various creative workshops according to the volunteers interests and skills, teaching hand made and recycled products making, organizing street performances and juggling shows…)
– Traditional hand made crafts (pottery, wood carving, felting, creating art pieces from recycled materials…) The volunteers can get vivid overview of different skills, crafts and techniques relevant to traditional and sustainable way of life and environmental friendly practices.
We look for young people daring to try a rural life style, ready to develop their skills and work on their personal growth. The underlying aim of all our activities is to help them to get to know themselves better and to formulate how do they want to fulfill their potential by actively creating the life they want to live.
Regarding our former experiences we need to say that life in a village is not for everybody! There is no variety of social life and if one wants any he would better create it himself. But the closest town Banska Stiavnica is easily approachable by bus, 15 min away, where there are more cultural activities. There is also another hosting organization where our volunteers use to make good contacts.
This presumes also that people who are happy to spend lots of time on their own, practicing their own hobbies and private interest, are happier here then those who aren’t. The volunteers should be able to manage their free time and actively cooperate on their “working schedule” and content of it.
