Project description

Be the leading force of youth in Ciudad Real, Castilla-La Mancha – the land of Don Quijote!

We are a youth NGO “CONSEJOVEN” serving as youth council for young people and youth associations in Ciudad Real and the nearby area. Our work and most of our activities are based on collaboration with numerous youth associations, other NGOs and local authorities.

We are looking for a volunteer who is interested to help in our activities in the fields of Youth participation & Education, Communication & PR and Promotion of Erasmus+.

The project duration is 1 year starting in October 2018.

Main activities 

  • Participating in the preparation and realization of our activities (such as youth meetings, events and workshops).
  • Maintaining communication with local associations and increasing the visibility of our activities.
  • Non-formal projects and activities organised by our collaborating associations that work with children and youth, including disadvantaged groups or minorities.
  • Promoting Erasmus+ (presentations and workshops on volunteering, informing young people who want to do an EVS, helping with the sending process, etc.).
  • Updating social networks and website (information, photos and videos of our activities).
  • Other activities that might occur and be suitable or of interest for the volunteer (example: giving informal language classes).

All the activities are realized with the support of the Erasmus+ coordinator and other European volunteers that are already in Consejoven.

During the project the volunteer will have the opportunity to improve in many areas, such as: interpersonal and communication skills, language skills, knowledge about a different culture and more.

Volunteer profile

  • Motivated, flexible, a good communicator, proactive, open to meet and work with different people from different cultures.
  • Interested in developing their skills in communication, media, event organisation and in organising leisure, education and social activities with youth and children, including disadvantaged people and minorities.
  • Minimal knowledge of spanish (level A2 and wish to learn more). Knowledge of english is a plus.
  • Interested in discovering the spanish culture.
  • Between 18 and 30 years old.

Experience in these fields would be a plus.

Accomodation, financial support, travel

  • The volunteer will share a flat with other EVS volunteers (will have his own room, shared bathroom, rent and bills covered by the project).
  • The volunteer will receive monthly amount for food (150 euro) and pocket money (150 euro), which is enough to cover your expenses in a relatively cheap town like Ciudad Real.
  • Travel costs to and from Ciudad Real are covered by the project (plain, train, bus, metro tickets, etc, except taxi). Possible visa costs are also covered.

Training during the project

  • Initial orientation and training in Consejoven.
  • On-arrival training and mid-term evaluation (about one week each, with other international volunteers), organised by the Erasmus+ Spanish National Agency.
  • Spanish language training (classes with a teacher and online language classes).
  • Various informal learning opportunities related to the activities of Consejoven.

Additional information

The applicants should be able to present a clear criminal record (solicited by the Spanish National Agency in order to be able to work with youth and children).

This project particularly welcomes applications from young volunteers who face barriers to employment, economic difficulties, geographical or social isolation.

We have 4 years of experience receiving EVS volunteers and we try make our volunteers feel welcome and to give them every opportunity to take the maximum of this experience – to learn, to enjoy, to get to know the Spanish culture and to leave with tons of useful new skills and competences for their future life.

Send us your CV and motivation letter at consejovencr@gmail.com, indicating that you are applying for the project Youth 4 You – CONSEJOVEN.

Application deadline: 18th of April 2018.

We are looking forward to your applications and welcoming you in our team in Ciudad Real!

 

1 volunteer for Project Youth 4 You – Cruz Roja

Project description

We are looking for a motivated volunteer for our next EVS project that will be developed in collaboration with the Red Cross. 

Consejoven is an NGO serving as the local youth council of Ciudad Real, Spain and working on topics like youth participation, youth associations and promoting volunteering and other Erasmus+ opportunities for young people. Our work and most of our activities are based on collaboration with numerous youth associations, other NGOs and local authorities.

This year our EVS volunteers have initiated a very good collaboration with the Red Cross. Currently, our volunteers collaborate with the Red Cross refugee department only part-time, because we have many other activities on our agenda. Seeing this as a very good partnership and a great opportunity for volunteers to develop and improve various skills, we decided to create another EVS project specifically for our activities with the Red Cross.

Now we are looking for one more volunteer to join our team and to collaborate mainly with the Red Cross.

The project duration is 1 year starting in October 2018.

Main activities 

  • At Consejoven: The volunteer will participate in the general volunteer activities in Consejoven like promoting Erasmus+ (presentations and workshops on volunteering, etc.), spanish language classes, all the Erasmus+ trainings for volunteers (on-arrival, mid-term,…). The volunteer will also have the full support and help with his/hers on-arrival orientation and integration in our team and the community in our town. (The first month or so the volunteer will spend mostly in Consejoven until he/she gets the necessary initial orientation and training)
  • At the Red Cross: The volunteer will collaborate with the lawyer and other specialists working with refugees. Depending on the volunteers abilities, knowledge and interests, specific activities will include:
    • Researching information on refugee issues (mostly researching the legislation of the countries of origin of the refugees)
    • Developing workshops on refugees’ rights and obligations
    • Translation (most of the refugees are french-speakers and have poor english or spanish knowledge)
    • Other activities that might occur and be suitable or of interest for the volunteer.

Volunteer profile

  • French-speaker (preferably native speaker or with very high level of knowledge in order to be able to understand, explain and translate specific information).
  • Minimal knowledge of spanish (level A2 and wish to learn more). Knowledge of english is a plus. (Will facilitate the integration of the volunteer and are necessary for researching information).

  • Knowledge and/or interest in topics like human rights, international relations, migrants issues and integration, etc.
  • Between 18 and 30 years old.
