Opis dejavnosti

De Switch is a residential setting that hosts teenage girls between 14 and 18 years old. The girls come from different backgrounds and problems (behaviour, family, social, psychological, economical…). We try to find out individually for each girl and her family context what is the best way to get their life back on the rails. Besides help and therapy we want to give them a house/place where they can participate at a lot of attractive activities that aren't related to their problems. In the residence, the girls and workers live together, and they carry daily activities and task from the household, and they offer experiences and activities for the girls to learn in a non-formal way. The activities can be for instance sports, arts, music, experiences with horses and other animals. The volunteer will help in the daily tasks like cooking, taking care of the house, shopping, and also proposing and joining evening activities/workshops, where volunteers can share their passions and knwowledge
