“Youth for Music” gives one volunteer, specific administrative, creative and pedagogical tasks, according to their skills and interests, related to our scheduled youth activities that have a European dimension, including: exchanges, orchestral sessions and concert tours. Tasks include: organisation of youth projects (promotion and mediatisation); communication and cooperation with foreign partners and participants; elaboration of the activity’s daily schedule; elaboration of cultural programs (trips/talks/visits); elicit the interest of the participants and public; support participants to solve any problems that arise; pedagogical coaching to problem solve and favour group integration; and pedagogical assessment of the results. The project’s aim is to reinforce and develop the volunteer’s professional capacity (relational/organizational/linguistic skills). Their involvement in youth activities will develop their ability to adhere to a project, work in a team and to coach youth.
ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS
Volunteers are accommodated with other volunteers in a flat offering standard facilities and good public transport connections.Volunteers hosted in Luxembourg receive a fixed subsistence allowance of 262.20 €; this amount fixed by law also covers the cost for local transportation. Volunteers also receive 198.64 € pocket money per month.
TRAINING DURING THE PROJECT
During the first weeks, the volunteer will be progressively integrated into the UGDA team and into the different activities of the UGDA Music School. After this period of integration, the volunteer will be fully involved in the activities specifically related to the above mentioned projects. The volunteer will participate in the on-arrival training (shortly after their arrival) as well as the mid-term evaluation (after six months) organised by the Luxembourg National Agency.
The volunteer should be open to learn and use new languages and experience intense intercultural exchange. They should have good social skills and not be afraid to communicate with young people. They should have a passion for music and other cultural activities and are expected to undertake the organisational, relational and pedagogical tasks for multicultural activities with young people coming from diverse cultural backgrounds and countries. Given the European dimension of the activities a good level of English and French is necessary, other languages are a plus.
