Call for Participants – “Give a Hand” – European Voluntary Service (EVS)

The Cyprus Youth Clubs Organisation- KOKEN presents its 3rd European Voluntary Service (EVS) project with the title “Give a Hand” that will take place in Nicosia from April 2017 to October 2017.

Presentation of the project:  Through this program, volunteers will have the chance to be involved with young people from urban and rural areas and learn more about our organization and its actions. They are going to be able to offer their knowledge and experience and at the same time improve their personal and professional skills.

Duties: “Give a hand” is going to be an educational project clearly aiming at disseminating certain skills and awareness about Youth Work among the members of the Youth Clubs. This project is expected to play an important role in the dissemination of the European values among the youth of Cyprus. The volunteers will support local volunteers who are familiar with the specific local needs, such as youth leaders and young volunteers. Volunteers will gather European documentation and will produce informational material. They will also support the European Projects Manager in certain tasks as communication, events, implementation of educational programs, helping youth clubs in partners search, facilitating events, promoting Erasmus+, promoting the EU values, key priorities and opportunities. The volunteers will receive mentoring from the European Projects Manager of KOKEN. At the end of their service they will receive a certificate and recommendation letter(s).
