The ”Ludothèque Castraise”, is an association that offers entertainment around games and toys and organizes a leisure centre on Wednesdays and during school holidays, we offer to 2 volunteers in CES to participate for twelve months in the life of the association. The project objective is to educate members and particularly the children to respect the diversity of cultures with fun activities such as support. Our objectives are the following: -Make a lot of games and toys available to everyone. - Stimulate the sense of responsibility and inter-age and inter-neighborhood dialogue with play or toys as a support for relationships. - To make both the games and toys of yesterday and those of today better known, without borders. The presence of volunteers reinforces these objectives and reinforces the European dimension and the values of solidarity that we promote. With this project we want to make Europe and cultural diversity more accessible and tangible for all our members.
The volunteer works as an assistant in Lyhty’s assisted housing Kotikutonen of the non-profit NGO “Lyhty ry”. Lyhty provides housing, education and work activity services for adults with learning disabilities. Lyhty is located in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. Kotikutonen is located in area called Pitäjänmäki. In housing units, a volunteer's job description includes helping with household chores such as cleaning, cooking and laundry. It is important to do homework together with a intellectual disabled person or to guide a person with intellectual disability to do their own homework. The housing units appreciate the volunteer's creativity, openness and genuine presence. For example, a volunteer can socialize with a resident, go out for coffee with other caregivers and residents, organize art shows or cook, play music, or organize activities such as a sports or dance.
Four volunteers needed on long-term ESC. Good Energies 2021 is a 1-year project that will use the enthusiasm and skills of our ESC volunteers to tackle the climate crisis, especially through our Cróga project. Cróga means Brave and our focus is reducing carbon emissions locally and nationally in Ireland, working with communities, organizing climate dialogue sessions, and schools, organizing climate action days. This will give our volunteers experience in campaigning, social media and publicity, democratic systems and actions, community interaction and empowerment. It will raise awareness of ESC locally and we will act as a sending organisation recruiting ESC volunteers, mainly with fewer opportunities. Our volunteers will be supported through mentoring, supervision and training to achieve high-quality learning outcomes (knowledge, skills and competences), to improve their personal development, their involvement as active citizens in society and their employability
