Supporting Voluntary Service Programmes
Do you enjoy working with youth? Are you interested in organizing educational workshops and creating a movie/visual material to support international voluntary projects in Czech Republic? This internship might be what you are looking for. You should have some practical knowledge of planning and organising workshops. Some previous experience with movie making (filming, editing), making interviews and/or sociological research is an asset. You should be ready to work with young adults, mostly between 18 – 30 years old.
The host organisation, INEX-SDA organizes international voluntary projects in the Czech Republic for 300 volunteers from all around the world each year. INEX-SDA creates opportunities for active engagement in society and for developing one‘s knowledge, skills, attitudes and experiences useful for personal, civic and professional life. The objectives of the internship are twofold: first, to bring educational dimension to voluntary projects, thus contributing to higher learning impact on volunteers who are willing to participate; and second, to develop a short movie or other visual material capturing the essence of voluntary projects to promote the values of learning through international volunteering. INEX-SDA has fifteen employees and two EVS volunteers.
As a GLEN participant, you will support the staff and activities in a three-phase plan. During the first orientation phase you will get you to know more about INEX-SDA’s values and you will participate in a two weeks voluntary project (i.e. workcamp). The second phase will take you to the practical activities; you will prepare an educational workshop which you will later implement in several workcamps. You will have a chance to spend a few days there and also collect material for the movie. The last phase will involve processing collected material, working on the outputs and finalising them.
The scheduled period for the internship is three months between June and September.
Training and seminars prior to the internship will be held in English.
The GLEN tandem will be formed by a Beninese and a French participant.
