Ponuka zúčastniť sa 10-mesačného dobrovoľníckeho pobytu v Chorvátsku (Záhreb a Veliki Žitnik) od 15. januára do 15. novembra 2019. Všetky náklady sú hradené. Počas pobytu sa dobrovoľník naučí viac o Adventure learning – učenie sa prostredníctvom zážitku. Hosťujúca organizácia Outward Bound Croatia sa špecializuje práve na tento druh vzdelávania.
The aim of the project is to help young people work on their personal development, enhance employability and improve career prospects, empower and motivate them to become active members of their communies. The volunteers will be directly involved in the everyday work of OBC, in the office in Zagreb and help out on outdoor programs and programs for youth in the OB educational center in Veliki Žitnik, a small village in the rural region of Lika. The volunteers will be part of the organizing team for activities for youth in OBC, during which they will acquire teamwork skills, organizational and leadership skills. They will have the opportunity to observe and gain insight into group facilitation skills and non-formal education methods.
They will also be encouraged to plan, organize and implement their own project ideas, and thus improve their presentation skills, self-confidence, creativity, sense of initiative and self- expression. Volunteers will develop and improve a range of skills and competences during their volunteering experience – digital competences and media skills, social and civic competences, cultural awareness and creative expression, communication in foreign languages, intercultural and social skills. Living and working in an intercultural environment will equip them with intercultural skills and understanding for diversity and tolerance.
Volunteers will be working in the organisation’s office in Zagreb on organisational, administrative, promotional and design-tasks. They will also be working in the field with youth which takes place in and around the OBC educational center in Veliki Žitnik. Ratio of office work and field work is approximately 60:40. Plan of volunteer work and activities will be structured and working hours set in advance. Team-meetings with the volunteers will be held on a regular basis. The schedule will be from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. with one-hour lunch break. During the programs for children and youth, trainings and international events, tasks and schedule will be set according to the needs of the program and the volunteers’ interests.
