Short description
The volunteers will do their project in Fjardabyggd in East Iceland. They will work as a team under the supervision of the project manager of the organization. They will be involved in preparing, organizing, running and evaluating environmental, educational and sustainable projects. Those projects are organized with international volunteers and usually last for 10 – 12 days. The volunteers will organize workshops during the projects in the field of environment and sustainability. We will also focus on topics, such as “plastic pollution”. “food waste”, “recycling” and “renewable energy” which are very important for the planet.
Veraldarvinir is involving children in secondary school in activities focused on environmental conservation and awareness. To do this, Veraldarvinir aims to organize awareness weekends in Fjarðabyggð. The weekends will consist of a cleaning up day activity, and then a conference on the cleaning up activity with the participation of interested people and learned specialists in the current field. This activity will take place every two months.
 
The volunteers will also have the option to help with the following tasks:
• Updating the website of the organization www.wf.is and social medias
• Coordinating and preparing the environmental awareness section of the WF Newsletter.
• Updating our database on brochures/reports/trainings/seminars/others.
• Preparing and distributing documents concerning different activities.
• Working in the office, with computer and usual modern facilities.
The volunteers can visit and/or participating in other workcamps in different regions in Iceland if they are interested.
 
Working hours: The working hours are 9 – 15 Monday – Friday. During the workcamps the volunteers are asked to share their free time with the rest of the group, such as going to the swimming pool, playing cards, listening to music, cooking and having dinner and going for walks. All depending on the field of interest of each volunteer.
At the beginning of the project, they will receive qualified training from the organisation members. This training will capacitate them to perform the projects´ activities, which vary between leading workshops, cleaning beaches to taking care of environmental awareness campaigns and sustainability. At the same time they will receive guidance in how to plan, organize and lead the projects, including topics as group management, conflict resolution, bookkeeping, development, leader roles, inter cultural cooperation, motivation, etc. They will also receive practical information about planning a project, spare time activities, first aid, etc.
During the project, they will learn a lot about environmental awareness, sustainability and of course about leadership. Veraldarvinir is involving local children in activities focused on sustainability and environmental awareness. The volunteers will go to the local schools and kindergartens in Fjarðabyggð and Reykjavik with short courses about sustainability.
The volunteers are getting in touch with the different culture as well and can learn about cultural diversity by experiencing it in environmental or cultural projects. It’s a magnificent opportunity for volunteer and organisation in broadening perspectives and meeting another culture. The mutual fertilization of volunteer and organisation is an idea we really like and appreciate. We will work together in a young and stimulating team. The volunteer project associates to the regular activities of our organisation and contributes to the development of the local community.
There are 8 volunteers participating in the project and it will start on the 1st of October and last for 6 Months.
At the end of the project the volunteer will receive a Youth Pass as a certificate of the project. and a Europass language passport.

Cos’è il Servizio Volontario Europeo?

Il Servizio Volontario Europeo permette ai giovani di impegnarsi nel volontariato per un massimo di 12 mesi, in un Paese diverso da quello di residenza. L’esperienza accresce la solidarietà tra i giovani ed è un vero "servizio di apprendimento". Infatti, oltre ad operare a favore delle comunità locali, i volontari apprendono nuove capacità e nuove lingue, entrando in contatto con nuove culture. Un progetto di questo tipo si avvale dei principi e dei metodi di apprendimento non formale.
Tutti i partecipanti allo SVE hanno diritto a ricevere il Certificato Youthpass, che descrive e convalida l’esperienza di apprendimento non formale e informale e i risultati acquisiti durante il progetto (risultati dell’apprendimento).

Un SVE non è…

  • occasionale, non strutturato, part-time
  • un tirocinio in azienda
  • un lavoro retribuito (e non deve sostituire lavori retribuiti)
  • un’attività ricreativa o turistica
  • un corso di lingua
  • sfruttamento di manodopera a basso costo
  • un periodo di studio o di formazione professionale all’estero

Chi può partecipare?

  • Giovani tra i 18 ed i 30 anni (non si deve aver compiuto il 31° anno d'età al momento della domanda di finanziamento)
  • Legalmente residenti in uno dei Paesi dell'Unione Europea

Quanto costa?

Il programma Erasmus+ finanzia:

  • Contributo alla spese di viaggio di andata e ritorno dei partecipanti calcolato sulla base della distanza del viaggio (esempio per distanze tra i 500 e 1999 KM è di 275 euro)
  • spese di vitto e alloggio (attraverso un contributo economico che viene dato all'associazione di accoglienza non al volontario)
  • spese per il trasporto da casa a lavoro
  • copertura assicurativa sanitaria
  • formazione linguistica
  • un Pocket Money mensile per il volontario per le proprie spese personali di 120 euro
