Volunteer: Step Forward (Jeugddienst Don Bosco) is a seminar focussed on making intercultural exchanges, EVS projects and summer exchanges much more accessible for young people within each participant country’s network, with a specific focus on those who are under-privileged.
Participants will learn about the processes behind such projects, as well as the vast amounts of opportunities and experiences that can be taken advantage of as a result of being part of such a well-resourced network. The seminar will consist predominantly of workshops focussed on analysing, exploring and improving different aspects of project management and how to tailor-make relationships with participants.
Participants from 12 member organisations within DBYN will be present, thus participants will be able to share ideas and good practice, as well as collaborate to find and tackle mutual obstacles.
On their return, the participant(s) will be expected to meet with their sending organisation to discuss the ways in which they can develop systems to help ensure the growth of not just domestic projects, but also the amount of young people taking up such opportunities in other network countries.
If you’re interested in applying to go on this seminar, please contact Sue McDonald before 1/2/15 at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that participants should have had at least one year’s involvement with the Salesians as a background knowledge is essential, as well as an awareness to how Salesian Youth Ministry UK is run.
Participants should be aged between 18-30, be available for the seminar itself (12-15th March), as well as a meeting at some point afterwards. The participant(s) will also be required to write a short report on the seminar, and provide some pictures.
