About the local hosting organizationVolunteers will work directly with children and adolescents without adequate parental care, between the age of 10 – 18. The project is aimed towards creating quality activities for this specif group which will positively affect their personal growth and development, and encourage them for interaction with foreign volunteers and the local community. The project will allow beneficiaries of the facility to participate in various art, educational and entertaining workshops, through which they will adopt skills of organizing their own free time, develop social and communication skills, and implement values of intercultural communication, international friendships and affirmative behaviour.
About the volunteer workVolunteers will prepare and organize workshops with children, raise awareness about volunteering and social solidarity among the local community and prepare a final presentation/manifestation that will show results of mutual work on project. Workshops will be oriented on several subjects (photography, music workshops, sports activities, manufacturing workshops, etc.) so the participants of different age and personal interests can take part. Volunteers will work 6 hours a day. They will have one free day in a week for organizing group trips and/or spending free time in the city.
