Activity description

Our volunteering project will involve 3 volunteers coming from different countries, who will be inserted for 7/8 months, from September 2023, in the context of Amycos' work in Burgos. Actually, the project aims to involve the volunteer in a local network promoting the Sustainable Development Goals. The main activity will be work in an urban organic garden and boosting ethical purchasing groups in Burgos, contributing to awareness-raising of concepts such as responsible consumption and production. The work will be strictly physical in the agricultural area and depending on the characteristics of the volunteer there will be space to promote a “green” network in Burgos collaborating with other organization in educational and communication activities. Also, in according to his/her profile the volunteer will be involved in: - Educational activities with children; - Administrative and Organizational tasks; - Social Inclusion of individuals with Intellectual Disabilities.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The volunteers will be hosted at an apartment chosen by Amycos and in accordance to the basic qualitative standards. Specifically, accommodation will be in the city of Burgos (in a single room or twin room) depending on the availability. Sharing of common spaces will be encouraged with other volunteers; although the privacy of the volunteers will be respected. Accommodation will be in charge to Amycos and the volunteer to receive monthly 150 € for food plus a pocket money of 150 €. Burgos is a small city and it’s not necessary to use a local transport daily

Training during the activity

Once they arrive, the volunteers will be assisted by the project coordinator and will be assigned a tutor for each activity.
