Project name: Volunteering project in Latvia
Hosting organisation: Gulbenes Novada

Purpose of the project:
This project is coordinated by the Gulbene Municipality Education Department. The European Solidarity Corps gives us the opportunity to host four youngsters from different countries to have an important intercultural and professional growth by doing a long term voluntary work, 10 months long (maybe even longer) for one of two pre-school education institutions in Gulbene Municipality countryside. The project aims to provide a supportive environment for
volunteers to work and gain intercultural experience, personality development, offering stable working structure in the organisation, as well as the possibility to show initiative; to expand public knowledge about the European and local voluntary work promoting intercultural dialogue and expanding horizons. The main work areas are pre-school institutions (kids from 1 to 7 years old), as well as initiatives in the local community. Main tasks are to help kindergarten stuff; assist on different daily activities and organise different activities based on own ideas
