In High Energy Reloaded we invite 35 international and 15-20 Hungarian, mainly local disadvantaged young people to Hollókő to live and work together for 20 days. The volunteers will work in the youth clubs located in nearby villages and will organize creative and leisure activities for children. Besides the non-formal education activities, we are also planning to organize an Open Event where we invite local partners, stakeholders, children, youngsters, parents and the representative of the embassies and cultural centres of the countries of the volunteers to celebrate together the successes of the project.
The volunteers will be accommodated in Creative Space group accommodation in Hollókő in a 3 levels stone building in 4-6 bedded rooms with their own showers and toilets. More info: www.kreativter.hu. The meals will be provided by a professional chef according to their diets and allergies, she will be helped by the volunteers in a rotating system.
The camp takes place in North-East Hungary, in a small village called Hollókő part of the UNESCO World Heritage. It is 90 km from the capital, Budapest. Egyesek Youth Association has been working in this very poor region for 10 years. The beautiful nature offers a lot of leisure time activities such as hiking, cycling, football. There are a lot of small museums in the village as well and in the vicinity several uniquely preserved traditional settlements.
Egyesek Youth Association organizes this camp in collaboration with local youth clubs, located in five small villages surrounding Hollókő. These youth clubs provide after-school activities for disadvantaged kids. We already established the base for the cooperation with the youth workers and social workers of these institutes through our long-term voluntary projects of the previous years.
Please send us a short motivation letter, explaining why you would like to apply for this project, and write a couple of sentences about whether you had any previous experiences working with children.
