Our collective task in this volunteer work camp will be to clean up and begin revitalizing a relief warehouse that provides support to Latvian and Ukrainian citizens who are facing difficulties - distributing food and non-food items, as well as household and hygiene essentials.
Your task under the supervision of our youth will be to provide support and learn together how to putty, paint walls, as well as place charity products and arrange them as needed.
The job is not a "clean" one and you will definitely need to wear dirty clothes to do this job. Our organization will provide you with all the necessary tools and protective clothing - goggles, masks, and other necessities. Previous experience is not required, and under the guidance of our young people who know the job, you will have the opportunity to learn new things and do good deeds for our people. You will be provided with the opportunity to wash your clothing so that it can be used clean again.
The specific warehouse renovation site will be located 4.5 km away from the center of the city of Bauska - you will be provided with transportation or reimbursed for public transportation to get to the warehouse. Work is planned from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM from Monday to Friday. We will provide excursions on one of the weekends or weekday evenings.
At the end of the work, a joint event is planned with Latvian and Ukrainian youth to express mutual gratitude for the work done. The event will provide an opportunity to share experiences, learn from each other, and celebrate the achievements of the volunteer work camp. It will be a festive occasion with music, food, and activities. Additionally, there will be speeches from representatives of the participating organizations and the local community, expressing their appreciation for the hard work and dedication of the volunteers. The event aims to strengthen relationships between Latvian, Ukrainian and volunteers youth, foster a sense of community and promote volunteerism.

Living in a volunteer work camp can be an exciting and challenging experience that provides the opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills, and use one's time and energy to help others and gain new insights into the world.
The living space will be in a newly renovated youth house that will be a shared space with mattresses and/or a sofa (depending on the number of people). There will be access to showers, amenities, and a kitchen that will allow volunteers to prepare their meals. The hosting organization will provide the necessary products to make meal preparation easier and more efficient.
Living together in a shared space, volunteers will have the chance to get to know other participants and share their experiences. This can provide an opportunity to make new friends and develop social skills. Additionally, living together, participants can collaborate to complete tasks that were assigned to the volunteers, as well as meet other young people from Latvia.
During their free time, young people will be offered opportunities to explore the city of Bauska and its surroundings, as well as to visit Latvia's capital city, Riga. The youth centre will have a television, game console, and board games available for their entertainment.

Bauska is a small, yet historically significant city in Latvia, located on the banks of the Lielupe, Mēmele and Mūsa rivers, approximately 66 kilometers from Riga. The city was founded around the 15th century and is associated with several important historical events.
One of the most famous tourist attractions in Bauska is Bauska Castle, which was built in the 15th and 16th centuries as a manor of the Livonian Order and later rebuilt as a Renaissance castle. It has now been restored and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the city. The city museum offers various historical exhibitions and an insight into the history of Bauska.
Bauska is also known for its other historic castles and castle ruins, such as Rundāle Palace, whose construction began in 1736 and is one of the most beautiful Baroque-style castles in the Baltic states. Moreover, there are several impressive castles and manors within a few dozen kilometers that we offer to visit.
Furthermore, there is plenty of natural beauty in the surroundings of Bauska. For example, Bauska Hill, which hosts several music festivals, as well as the Bauska river valley, offer wonderful opportunities for walking, cycling, and fishing.
Overall, Bauska is a charming city that offers a lot of historical and natural beauty that must be visited by every tourist who wants to explore Latvia's history and culture.
