About the local hosting organizationThis will be a summer language children camp (English). All together there will be around 25-30 children from different social and ethnic background including those from low-income families (economically disadvantaged) and from inner refugees (those moved from conflict zone). The camp for children is sponsored by Volodymyrets District Collegium (primary and secondary school). It will take place on Collegium s recreation camp site among pine forests on the shore of beautiful and clean water lake, equipped with wooden bungalows and all the facilities. The aim of the camp is to provide educational and healthy recreation opportunities to children. Among the other ideas of the camp are integration of different social groups, promotion of mutual understanding and tolerance, development of interpersonal communication, socialization and informal education of children. Volunteers are welcome to join this camp and bring their international spirit to encourage children to learn about the other cultures, to get children motivated to learn English (because having the possibility to use it with for international communication the lessons of English at school is a sort of dead subject without an interest to learn it). Volunteers will have a chance to share their enthusiasm, knowledge, experience with children, who in their turn will help volunteers to discover multicolour Ukraine.
About the volunteer workVolunteers will be divided between different children age groups (12-15 years old) and will assist the tutors in different educational and leisure activities: workshops, competitions, sports, walks, parties, campfire, dancing, swimming in the lake, boating etc. . Informal teaching will run in form of games, songs, performances, artscrafts. Volunteers should expect to be engaged in work with children from morning to evening, while we believe it will be much more pleasure then duty
