ΕVS project in the island of Skiathos, Greece
In the beautiful island of Skiathos, a group of young people from all over Europe are gathering to make the island a better place both for children and adults. The volunteers’ main gathering place is our play lounge where they will be playing with children and will help them discover their own culture. In cooperation with the local schools and sport clubs, volunteers will have the opportunity to organize and participate in, workshops and activities for children, teenagers and adults, while promoting the protection of nature, intercultural-ism, solidarity and healthy living. Vegan cooking, yoga and meditation workshops will also be organized.

Volunteers will be working 5 hours per day, 5 days per week, but can participate in various activities (movie nights, board games, swimming, etc.) for free during their free time. Every volunteer has his own specialty and will be mentored and helped to develop the skills needed for every task.

– A French speaking young woman (Belgian will be preferred) from 18 to 30 who will participate in activities and crafts for children from 6 to 10 years old and will give them the opportunity to discover French by immersion.

– A young woman from any nationality from 18 to 30 who will participate in activities and crafts for children from 6 to 10 years old.

Regardless of the specific profile, we are looking for polite, motivated, patient, creative and autonomous volunteers, who love being in contact with children. Indeed, all volunteers will participate in activities and crafts for children from 1 to 10 years old, and will be required to keep an eye on them at the play lounge. Moreover, they will be eager to do their share of dish washing and house cleaning. The food at home will be vegan. We expect our volunteers, vegan or not, to be open-minded and tolerant towards one another.

Training during the project:
All the volunteers will have the opportunity to learn and improve their skills with the help of their mentor, the local community and each other. Greek and French language courses are available.

Accommodation, food and transport:
Volunteers will live in a big apartment with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a big kitchen, a huge living room, one balcony and a garden with fruit trees. They will be provided with a food allowance once per week and will arrange the weekly menu together. The 3 female volunteers will share a big bedroom. The male volunteer will stay in another big bedroom with a man. There will be a total of 7 persons in the house. Volunteers will be allowed to invite friends and/or family to visit them and stay on the 3 couches on the living room, always after discussing it with the other volunteers.

The island is small and everything in the town is easily accessible by foot but there are also two bikes available. There is a bus going all around the island all year long (every twenty minutes in the summer, less frequently in the winter), volunteers have a monthly allowance to take the bus or the manager’s van to go and explore the island.

Looking forward to receiving your motivated volunteers’ application.
