Eager to create activities for local community
The volunteers will be selected among youngsters deeply motivated to work with children and contribute to their development and possibly among those with a little experience with children or a degree in primary education. We will encourage them, once they get to know the working methods of the kindergarten and nursery to create their own games, handcraft classes etc. By their presence, we would like to promote cross-cultural activities, solidarity and European values. Volunteers will get full guidance and will develop by actually doing their activities.
