Long-Term Volunteering Projects in Latvia!

Location: Gulbene, Latvia

Project name: Volunteering project in Latvia

Hosting organization: Gulbenes Novada

Sending organization: “Common Sense” Youth Organization

Purpose of the project: This project is coordinated by the Gulbene Municipality Education Department. The European Solidarity Corps allows us to host four youngsters from different countries to have important intercultural and professional growth by doing long-term voluntary work, 10 months long (maybe even longer) for one of two preschool education institutions in Gulbene Municipality countryside. The project aims to provide a supportive environment for volunteers to work and gain intercultural experience, and personality development, offering a stable working structure in the organization, 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 preschool institutions (kids from 1 to 7 years old), as well as initiatives in the local community. Main tasks are to help kindergarten staff; assist with different daily activities and organize different activities based on own ideas.
