ESC longterm project in Estonia, Valga county (Valgamaa). Activities on youthwork in 5 different Valga county youth centres: in Valga, in Tõrva, in Karula, in Taheva and in Tõlliste and one activity in Kindergarten/School (Gaia class) in Hargla.
Number of vacancies: 6
* 2019/2020 we had the volunteers in Valga youth centre from Ukraine, in Taheva youth centre from Germany (in Hargla), in Karula youth centre from Finland and in Tõlliste youth centre from Austria.
An ECS volunteer should be at the age of 18 to 30 and willing to participate in an 11 months or 6,5 months long project.
When applying, it would be good to have an interest in youth work, working with the youngsters or children and media. Although, it is not an expectancy to have these skills and knowledge. It is important to have the desire of utilising your knowledge and skills and passing them on the local youngsters and children.
We are expecting that our volunteer is an open communicator and a friendly person, who is ready to be flexible about his/her working hours and assignments.
The work management in youth centre is very varied – you have to be mobile becuse of collaboration meetings and trainings all over the country and flexible because of the working hours of the centre (in addition to working on weekdays it is common to have to work on weekends as well).
The work management in kindergarten and Gaia class is organized according to the lesson plan (starting in the morning and finishing before 17), but there will be inside a lot of flexibility to give an opportunity a different style of workshops, trips, hikes etc. Mostly workdays will be on Monday until to Friday.
Cultural differences are not decisive, they are rather beneficial in terms of global diversity – we accept everyone who is suitable for youth work.
We will go through and discuss every single application as a team and will make Skype calls.
