We have a new, short-term EVS opportunity available in Gaziantep, Turkey, starting in June. This EVS project is for those volunteers that want to experience and learn how to assist children and teenagers of refugees in their education, social life and learning healthy life habits. The volunteers will join the organization’s daily activities to help children of Syrian and Afghan families suffering from social and economic difficulties. They educate and entertain the kids and teach them basic knowledge, art, mathematics, language, and social/personal skills. They also organize campaigns to reduce xenophobia.
The organization is looking for volunteers between 18 and 30 years old, interest in participating in campaigns and learning activities for children and teenagers with fewer opportunities. The project is in a big Turkish city, Gaziantep, and the organization is located right in the city center, where they host 10-14 volunteers at the same time. All these volunteers are from different countries and cultures, so while you probably have to share a room, you’ll get a unique chance to both meet people from different backgrounds as the opportunity to help children in need.
The deadline for this project is 31/05/15, so be quick.
If you’re interested and you feel that working with and educating children is something you’d enjoy, you can apply directly by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Volunteers for a better generation”. Don’t forget to also attach a CV and a motivational letter, explaining your interest in the project and why you’re the best candidate for the job.
