KDAP Centre of Creative Work for Children
Accreditation Number: 2017-1-EL02-KA110-003428
The Youth Centre project takes places in the Centre of Creative Work with Children (Κ.Δ.Α.Π.), in Xylokastro, that hosts children from the age of 5 to 12 years old.
In this project, the ESC volunteer will provide additional support and help in the everyday work of the Centre. This includes doing theatrical workshops, games, music-kinetic workshops and handcraft with the children, playing with them in the free time, helping the teachers to prepare materials and the room for the activities, and avoid possible conflicts between the children. The volunteers will also have the opportunity to organize their own small workshops, depending on his/her skills and ideas (e.g. music, handcraft, theatre etc).
The main goal of this project is to promote and develop the contact of the future volunteer with the community of Xylokastro, especially the children, and with the other volunteers. The volunteers will have the possibility to broaden their horizons by living in a foreign country and leaning about the culture and the language. In addition, they will develop their soft skills, by working as a team with the educators and working with the children, and their artistic abilities, which may prove helpful in their professional future.
Moreover, our aim in hosting a volunteer is to develop the understanding of the European and International cultural context, to provide informal education, encourage social integration and active participation, and to offer them new means of expression and communication through music, art, etc.
