The voluntary work takes place in the kindergartens of the Municipalities of Xylokastro-Evrostini and Velo-Vocha which host children in between 2- 5 years old.
Our motivation to host EVS volunteers is the support and help in the everyday work of the kindergarten. This includes helping in the fine-art workshop, painting lessons, theatrical workshop, playing games with the children, join the trips, excursions, helping in the kitchen of the kindergarten and they will help once a week in the youth information office of Xylokastro. The volunteers will assist the staff in the daily childcare and organize his/her own small project depending on his/her skills and ideas (e.g. music, handicraft, theatre, games etc). A further important aspect of the project is to give the volunteer the opportunity to put his/her ideas into the practice and to reflect upon this with experienced staff of our school. We would like the volunteer to learn the way to protect the children of these vulnerable ages, to promote the European idea among the children as the future adults of Europe by giving them the chance to experience what it actually means.
We would like also to develop the volunteer’s responsibility, creativity, knowledge, and skills.
Our goal is to develop the international and intercultural understanding of the children, and thus we would like to give them the way of thinking from this early age when they can adopt new things easier that they can cooperate and communicate with people from other countries by overcoming language difficulties and cultural differences. In this way we can fight against racism, xenophobia and discrimination.
