Werk

Activating kids in the city camp and providing them with cross-cultural learning experience. Volunteers will do it using various informal methods of teaching as well as working in small group techniques. The activities to be held by a team of volunteers may include the following: playing the games and performing music that are popular in the countries the volunteers represent; training kids to perform pieces of amateur drama; preparing festivals; providing intellectual and sport games as well as discussions and excursions round the places of interest; organizing actions for peace and nature protection; leading and supporting kids in their work on the team projects within the topics related to the main theme of the summer. Volunteers are responsible for the day activities in the camp. The work can be demanding, involving longer hours on some days, requiring high level of commitment and responsibility. You will stay with campers from 10:00 to 17:00 and spend another hour to prepare next day activities and feedback. Working days are from Monday to Friday; Sundays are days off. In addition there will be one more extra day-off every week depending on the schedule. Before the camp activities start there will be 3-day training about camp methodology and preparation.There are 8 camp shifts during this summer project which are of different length (5-10 days) and for different ages (10-16 years old). All of them are day camps that are held in Tallinn. The working language is English. An average number of volunteers working with schoolchildren in one camp is 2-8 (both long-term volunteers for the whole summer and short-term volunteers who may join for 1, 2 or 3 weeks); they work in pairs with one of the camp groups of 10-12 teens and change the groups every 2-3 days. An average number of kids/teens participants in one camp shift is 40 who are split into four camp groups; the local participants are mainly youngsters from a Russian-speaking minority group of Tallinn.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

There are 2 options possible which are subject to availability:1) A furnished shared apartment in the residential area of Tallinn. The apartment has three dormitory bedrooms and all necessary facilities, and it takes about 20 minutes to get to the city center by public transport. Public transport cards will be provided. Volunteers will cook their breakfast meals themselves (standard European breakfast food will be provided); dinner meals will be served at school between 18:00 and 19:00; lunches will be organized for the whole camp (including kids) in the city centre.2) The premises of the Language School In Down-Town located on the 4th and 5th floors of a business building in the city centre. In summer time, a part of the school is reserved for the volunteers accommodation that includes several separate dormitory bedrooms, a fitted kitchen, a dining area, a large shower area and two separate toilet cabins. Catering will be organized by the School on an agreement with volunteers (selection of times, meals provided or independent cooking, etc.)Please note: it is not possible to stay at any of the camp accommodation before or after the camp. If you need a place to stay before or after the camp dates, we can help you to book a hostel in Tallinn.

The volunteers who are qualified against these restriction requirements may arrive 3 days before the actual camp dates to be first trained to do their job in the camp. In all other cases, volunteers are subject to 7-day self-isolation. These volunteers may arrive minimum 7 days before the actual camp dates and undertake the following steps: 1) make sure you have a medical/travel insurance that covers Covid-19 test; 2) get tested at the Tallinn airport; 3) if tested negative, stay self-isolated for 6 days and participate in the camp on-line training to get prepared; 4) get tested again; 5) if tested negative, come to school and join the camp (if tested positive, self-isolate for 7 days and get in contact with the camp organisers for further instructions). Accommodation options for the period of self-isolation will be discussed with the prospective volunteers during the interview. Special requirementsYou have to be really motivated to work with kids.
