VESSEL – Volunteering as an Engine for Solidarity, Social Engagement and Learning opportunities is an international volunteering activity with volunteers from different European Union countries. The international volunteers will be placed in the Southern Portuguese city of Olhão, where they’ll meet a different culture and way of living, learn and experience new things. The volunteers will be involved in the activities and projects developed by MOJU – Associação Movimento Juvenil em Olhão and will be encouraged to develop and implement their own projects/ ideas. The volunteering service start’s from January 2021 and goes to a maximum period of 12 months.
Accommodation, food and transport arrangements:
The volunteer will live in a furnished rented flat shared with other volunteers, close to the office, and not far from the centre of the town. The flat contains all the necessary amenities and is divided into different rooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom. The volunteers will have their own bedroom or share it with another volunteer, a shared kitchen, and a bathroom. A monthly contribution to food will be given to every volunteer. The volunteers will receive monthly pocket money as stipulated by European Solidarity Corps. These amounts will be paid at the beginning of every month.
Participants should be European citizens of age between 18 – 30. There are no preferences regarding gender, age or study areas. However, a special concern is taken on the analysis of volunteers’ experience in working with children and young people with fewer opportunities and at risk of exclusion, since these will be the main goal of the proposed activities. The fact that the volunteer has some experience linked with youth associations is seen as positive for the development of the activities/projects.
