Long-term volunteering project in the Netherlands!

Location: Lunteren, Netherlands

Project name: Library – work with kids

Hosting organization: Rock Solid Foundation

Sending organization: “Common Sense” Youth Organization

Purpose of the project: During the ESC Voluntary year, volunteers will focus on learning the differences in the society regarding this work field. Next to that, they will try to motivate local youngsters as well as clients from the organizations to participate in national and international projects, such as youth exchanges and training courses. Also, they will learn how to improve the conditions in their own country, step by step, after going back home. They will be actively involved in the different activities of Rock Solid, on local and regional level. Next to that we organize a few short-term projects for people with disabilities including a helper. For detailed information about the project please, click on InfoPack.

No participation fee! 

Language: English

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements:

Lunteren, a village right in the middle of the Netherlands, will be a little bit the ”center” of the projects (where most of the volunteers will be hosted, language courses and team building activities will be organized etc.), so traveling time to work by bike, bus or train can take between 25 minutes till 1 hour and 20 minutes (if there are no delays). However, the working hours are adjusted to the traveling hours, so less travel means more working and more travel means fewer working hours, so it will be “fair” for all. In total the volunteers are active between 36 and 40 hours a week, including the Dutch classes, travel and other mandatory activities (excluding teambuilders).

Application conditions and requirements for volunteering:

We aim for volunteers who are interested in social work and/or people with disadvantages in general. One of the conditions to apply is a good knowledge of English and good social skills because the volunteers have to work with people with mental challenges. Another condition is a proof of good conduct, because this is obliged in Dutch youth and social care.
