We are looking for 10 new ESC volunteers to support us for 9 months

In the May 2021-February 2022 period we, the Youth Association from Transylvania, will host 10 volunteers from the EU for 9 months, in the small town of Cristuru Secuiesc, Romania, through an already approved European Solidarity Corps project. 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 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).

We are looking for any youth aged 18 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 to carry out the activity, only an inquisitive demeanour 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 to effectively communicate with the local community. Finally, we are looking for energetic, creative open minded and independent youth.

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.
