Location: Barcelona, Spain

Hosting organization: Servei Civil Internacional de Catalunya

Sending organization: “Common Sense” Youth Organization

Purpose of the project: The ESC volunteer will give support mostly in the Volunteering Area of SCI-Catalunya, working as a Volunteers Placement Officer. Her/his main tasks will be: giving information to local people who want to participate in a work camp, collecting and sending their application forms, and keeping in contact with the hosting associations. She/he will also give information about other volunteering opportunities, such as Long Term Volunteering (LTV) or ESC. In addition, during the summer, the volunteer will have the opportunity to directly participate in a local workcamp. The ESC volunteer is expected to work 6 hours per day, 5 days per week. The volunteer may be asked to work on weekends for special activities, whenever her/his presence will be considered important (both for the organization and for her/his personal learning). Free days will be given to compensate

The volunteers will stay in a flat close to the center of Barcelona in the Gotic Area. The volunteers will have their own individual rooms and will share a bathroom. This flat also hosts occasional volunteers and activists in the other rooms available in the flat. 


There will be the opportunity of joining pieces of training, youth exchanges, and work camps that we organise and also that the rest of the SCI Branches contacts or partners organize. As well as participating in local groups that we have (many different areas, Mediterranean area, climate justice, feminisms, etc…) 


The volunteer need to be fluent both in Spanish and English and have excellent writing skills. A basic knowledge of Catalan is also evaluated, however not compulsory before the arrival. The volunteers will be asked to learn Catalan during their stay, as it will be the main language in the office as well as during the activities organized with and for local volunteers. Highly evaluated skills are flexibility, a sense of responsibility, self-initiative, and the ability to work in a team. Previous experience in other SCI branches, workcamps, youth exchanges, or international pieces of training will be good
