Description of the project:

With this project we would like to face the unemployment among the young people by developing them on personal and professional level. At the end of the project the youngsters will become active citizens in their own country and a better work force on the labor market. Because their self – confidence will grow and they become more strong-minded, they will find a proper job more easily.

The volunteers will do their service mainly in Sovata where we organize most of our programs and where we run our International Youth Center and we organize outdoor programs all around the year.

The volunteers will know better a lot of different jobs by observing, learning the essential and practicing these jobs with the help of our staff.

The volunteers will go through an intensive self-development process being with our organization. They will gain many skills -soft skills in working with groups of children, youngsters and adults, like: facilitation and debriefing competences, about group dynamics, planning, delivering and evaluating a program. They will  learn a lot technical skills, like ropes course activities, kayaking, canoeing, making fire, building bivaque, orienteering, nature awareness, hiking, rock climbing, first aid and a lot more.

They will take initiatives more easily, and they will be more aware of their learning.

The EVS will help the volunteers to improve their English language competences, to improve communication skills, to become more flexible, raise their awareness about other cultures and nations.
