Momentum World wishes to co-ordinate and host a year long EVS placement for 4 volunteers to work at a busy residential youth centre in the beautiful town of Keswick in the heart of the English Lake District National Park. This will provide an opportunity for those young people to learn new skills highly relevant to future working life. Reliable partners from Austria, Poland and Spain (Tenerife) have been identified.The objectives of the project are: -To offer an opportunity for relevant work experience to build volunteers cv's and enhance future employability- To improve competences in youth work as a pathway to future employment- To improve language skills- To give an opportunity to take leadership positions- To enhance intercultural awarenessThe issues and needs we seek to address are the biggest ones of all in our society i.e. crippling youth unemployment throughout Europe. Young people need hope, they need help and they need opportunities like this . We would look to place 4 volunteers for the duration of the project. Activities planned are;1. Pre-departure training2. On arrival training3. Two weeks induction training4. Assisting more experienced youth workers delivering residential programmes including team building, music, drama, group reflection sessions, outdoor games and other wider ranging outdoor activities 5. On going workshops on youth training & facilitation skills6. Gradual increase in responsibility through further training to enable volunteers to lead on activities.7. Mid term evaluation8. Assistance with administration9. Intercultural and social occasions10. Open days meeting local people11. Regular mentoring and support meetings including youthpass12. Final evaluation and Youthpass sessionThere is maximum use of non formal education methods at the Centre and a great deal of emphasis placed on healthy living through outdoor exercise and sport. The expected impact for the volunteers is; - Improved skills for employability - Improved language skills- New networks of professional friends- New organisational and leadership skills- Greater intercultural understandingFor partner organisations;- Widening scope of operations- Deepening successful relationships with partners- A broader offer to potential volunteersLonger term, we would like to grow this offer and take on additional volunteers to work in other areas of need in this region.
