JONGEREN PROJECTEN 2014
Beste vrijwilliger, Het zomerseizoen 2014 is weer begonnen! Alle projecten die SIW dit jaar aanbiedt staan weer op de website en de aanmeldingen stromen binnen! We hebben dit jaar wederom een ruim aanbod: meer dan 2.000 projecten in 77 bestemmingen!
Wat zijn nu de mogelijkheden voor vrijwilligerswerk wanneer je nog geen 18 bent ? Voor deelnemers jonger dan 18 jaar, biedt SIW speciale zomerprojecten voor jongeren aan. Dit zijn groepsprojecten waar je samen met een groep internationale vrijwilligers 2 ĂĄ 3 weken aan het werk gaat. Deze tienerprojecten vinden voornamelijk plaats in Europa en zijn toegankelijk vanaf 14, 15 of 16 jaar. Alle mogelijkheden voor 2014 staan nu op onze website en een groot deel staat ook in deze tienerprojectengids. De opzet van sommige van deze projecten is grotendeels hetzelfde als alle andere projecten, alleen wordt meestal minder lang gewerkt en is er meer tijd voor excursies en groepsactiviteiten. Als je aan een jongerenproject wilt deelnemen ben je verplicht een voorbereidingsdag voor groepsvrijwilligerswerk te volgen. De voorbereiding zorgt er voor dat je optimaal bent voorbereid, dat je meer uit je project haalt en dat je op een gezellige manier mensen leert kennen die ook een project gaan doen. De eerstvolgende mogelijkheid om deel te nemen aan een reguliere voorbereiding is 19 april 2014. Daarna zijn er nog voorbereidingsdagen op 21 juni en 25 oktober.
Hoe schrijf je je in voor een project en wat zijn de kosten? Je schrijft je online in voor een project door middel van het inschrijfformulier op onze website. Je betaalt dan â‚Ź 225,- inschrijfgeld (voor studenten en jongeren onder de 18 jaar). Voor dit geld krijg je in het desbetreffende land kost en inwoning en in sommige gevallen ben je verzekerd voor ongevallen. De reis en de reisverzekering regel en betaal je zelf. Alle bovengenoemde kosten zijn onder voorbehoud. Voor de projecten is een beperkt aantal plaatsen beschikbaar. De projecten in Europa zitten snel vol, dus wacht niet te lang met aanmelden en geef bij voorkeur een 2e en 3e keuze op! Dus hoe eerder we voor je kunnen gaan bemiddelen, hoe groter de kans is dat je in het project van je eerste keuze kunt worden geplaatst. Zodra je inschrijfgeld en inschrijfformulier binnen zijn, kunnen we voor je gaan bemiddelen. Je kunt ook altijd een keer langskomen op ons kantoor (we zijn elke dag van 9.00 tot 17.30 geopend), bellen 030-2317721 of een mailtje sturen naar firstname.lastname@example.org.
