Do Řecka na zkušenou

English bellow! Mladiinfo ČR právě zahajuje přihlašování na dobrovolnický projekt v Řecku. Odjeďte do Řecka na zkušenou přes Evropský sbor solidarity a objevte něco nového!

Mladiinfo ČR dlouhodobě spolupracuje s řeckou organizací Orfeas, která hledá do svého týmu dalšího dobrovolníka z České republiky! Informace o projektu a jak se přihlásit pro vás připravila naše litevská dobrovolnice Dora, která je v současné době v naší brněnské kanceláři také díky programu Evropský sbor solidarity (dříve Evropská dobrovolná služba).

Project Description

Forever sunny, green, and full of indulging smells of lemon, orange, apricot – that’s a town called Xylokastro in the peninsula of Peloponnese, Greece, where you can find the mystery of ancient history and beaches of gold. That is just a little part of the ESC (before it was EVS) volunteering project waiting for you. 

An organization Orfeas is looking for a motivated volunteer to work with 2-5-year-old kids to work in a kindergarten in Greece. It would be not just everyday work in the kindergarten but expressing your own artistic and creative ideas, implementing them with children, and showing them a new culture that would encourage tolerance and acceptance of the different from a very early age.  

The project would last from January 2020 until June 2020 for 6 months (the starting date can be flexible but not the duration of the project).

The volunteer would get the following tasks:

  • assist the teachers, e.g. to organize the classroom, prepare teaching materials;
  • support the learning process of the children; 
  • help with fine-art and drama workshops, painting lessons;
  • participate in outdoor activities based on the season and the teaching plan;
  • help the kindergarten staff with everyday schedule; 
  • Be an active member of the team.

Orfeas aims to organize and support national programs of the partner municipalities, natural heritage protection, and environmental activities, summer events, festivals, concerts, theatrical performances, exhibitions in cooperation with the local municipalities. 

Moreover, an active style of living will be supported by free Greek language classes, workshops, cooking lessons, dance lessons, different theme nights. The volunteer will be welcome to suggest his ideas about potential events. 

Travel and Living 

It is not just a good way to spread your culture, implement your ideas, change the future by making a good impact on the young ones, be a part of an active community but also a chance to make life-lasting friends.

  • Four bedrooms;
  • Living room;
  • Kitchen;
  • Three bathrooms;
  • Four balconies;
  • Big rooftop. 

Plane tickets to the place will be reimbursed up to 275 euros, the volunteer will be provided with pocket money for food and living expenses.

  • Social and open-minded;
  • Responsible and patient;
  • Creative;
