Praha 2, Czech Republic

The application deadline has passed.

Activity description

Every year INEX-SDA organizes approximately 30 international voluntary projects (workcamps) across the Czech Republic where a group of local and foreign volunteers support ecological, social, cultural-historical and community projects. By organising workcamps, educational programs and campaigns we contribute to the development of a tolerant and open society and encourage an active and responsible approach to the world around us both locally and globally. We create space in which people can gain new experiences, expand their skills and develop their own views of the complexity of the world around them. The volunteer will join the incoming programme and will assist with the organization of the workcamps in the Czech Republic. The anticipated tasks: - communication with partner organisations all around the world - communication with incoming volunteers - presentation of INEX-SDA - leading of workcamps - organization of events - taking an active part in training and seminars - opportunity.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The volunteer will live in a fully equipped flat in Prague. The accommodation will be located within a reachable distance from the office (by public transport). The volunteer will get a monthly food allowance and receive public transport card.

Training during the activity

The volunteer will have full support from INEX-SDA staff during the whole duration of the project. A local mentor will also support the volunteer, especially in areas of integration and free time activities. The volunteer can participate in training and seminars organized by INEX-SDA - this way they can develop their communication and presentation skills, learn about volunteering in the Global South and develop skills related to the group-leading of international volunteers. Moreover, there are occasions, in which volunteers are supposed to acquire the methods of non-formal education.

Participant profile

Our project is open to anyone with an interest in our activities and projects and a strong motivation in becoming an active member of our team. We welcome open-minded and flexible people with a willingness to learn and invest their own energy and ideas into common goals and eventually develop their own project. The precision, thoroughness and consistency are must-have requirements. The volunteer needs to be able to work independently as well as in a team, communication skills are highly valued. Be prepared that a lot of work is of administrative character and not in the field.
