Youth Information & Media Project
Accreditation Number: 2017-1-EL02-KA110-003427
The Youth Information and Media project takes place in the office of Orfeas, in Xylokastro-Evrostini municipality. Throughout the office, we aim to provide the young people of the region with informal intercultural learning experiences, encourage their social interaction, their active participation, increase their employability and give them the possibility to show solidarity with other young people from different countries. Furthermore, it is our goal to promote the ESC and the Erasmus+ programmes, in order to show the youngsters all the opportunities they can benefit from.
The Office Volunteers will assist the staff of Orfeas Organization in the daily work. This includes the facilitation of effective communication and coordination between the volunteers and the organization, the support of volunteers in practical needs of everyday life, and the dissemination of information, updates and proposals for future initiatives to partner organizations and prospective volunteers. Moreover, the Office Volunteers manage the organization’s social media and website, which includes the creation and publishing of posts for Instagram and Facebook, and the writing of articles for Orfeas’ newsletters. There is also the opportunity to plan, disseminate and implement events, activities and workshops, both between the volunteers and between the volunteers and the community.
Our purpose, throughout these activities, is to assist with the development of the volunteers’ sense of responsibility, creativity, knowledge and skills. Additionally, we like to give the volunteers the opportunity to develop their own personal projects or workshops based on their interests and talents.
