Since spring 2019 we embarked on a new adventure that hosts 24 European Solidarity Corps (ESC) volunteers in Cristuru Secuiesc, ROMANIA.
The candidates have the choice to be active in 8 different areas: support person for entities working with disabled youth (1), for kindergartens (2), for herbalists (3), for the www.keresztur.info news portal (4) and for the host organization (5), manager of up-cycling education (6) and puppet show group (7) and as promoter of rural traditions (8).
With this call we are looking for the last group of 8 youth from Portugal, Spain, Hungary, Italy, Germany, France, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania to volunteer in a 6 months long activity starting on the 7th of September 2020, if the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions allow it. Candidates can apply until the 30th of June 2020.
Each volunteer will receive 150 € as food allowance and 90 € as pocket money each month. Everything else, including house rental costs, gas, electricity, water and internet costs, appliances and activity related costs will be managed by the hosting organization. International travel is also reimbursed.
Volunteers will do their activities in a flexible way, for about 6-7 hours/day and 5 days every week. Two days are free every week and 2 other days are holidays every month. Beside these all regional and national free days and holidays are also considered free for the volunteers.
We are looking for any youth aged 17 to 30 who is serious and motivated to come to a small city and support us in the development of a community with a lot of potential. We do not require volunteers to have any pre-determined skill sets or aptitudes in order to carry out the activity, only an inquisitive demeanor and an openness to learn new things which may be needed for the activity. Also, we do not require participants to have advanced or intermediate English speaking skills, we only require them to have a basic skill in English and an openness to learn the local language in order to effectively communicate with the local community. Last but not least, we are looking for energetic, creative open minded and independent youth.
For anyone wishing to join us as an ESC volunteer, we will firstly require a CV and a motivation letter. DEADLINE for applying is the 30th of June 2020. But we will start processing and selecting in order of application, so as soon as you apply, the more chances you have. Applications can be sent to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
