The organisation WIKI operates in the field of child care to youth work.
There are 10 Youth Points in the region of Styria. The main idea behind
the Youth Points is to provide recreational activities, promote active
communication and interaction through a variety of approaches (new media,
sports, creativity, music and so on). One of the key aims is to show the
youngsters recreational activities that do not involve violence, crime,
drugs or alcohol.
The EVS hosting Youth Point is located in Birkfeld, a town located in a
rural area with a population of 1750 inhabitants. The Youth Point offers
great facilities for the youngsters – reaching from table football,
billiard, games, internet, cooking, discussions about job/drug
prevention/sexuality… There are two more Youth Points in the surroundings:
Strallegg and Miesenbach. The opening hours are during the week in the
afternoon. Youngsters in the age range of 12 – 19 years attend the Youth
Point. The volunteer’s main working place will be in Birkfeld, he/she can get
to know the Youth Points in the surroundings as the same team attends all
youth centres in the region.
The volunteer will live in Graz or Birkfeld. Graz is the second largest
city in Austria with about 270.000 inhabitants. Being a university town
many young people are living here and so it offers interesting cultural,
social and sportive day and night activities. The transfer between Graz
and Birkfeld (distance ca. 50 km) takes about one hour. The volunteer will
be given a lift by the members of the team who live in Graz or she/he can
go by public transport. For someone who loves nature, sports and a rural
surrounding Birkfeld is quite a little paradise (http://www.birkfeld.at)

Volunteers will be involved in arranging and planning
workshops and excursions, gender specific work, multicultural education,
networking, interactive media pedagogy, educational leisure activities, and
assisting young people with job applications and homework. The volunteer has
the opportunity to develop his/her own projects, and will be fully supported by
the team. However the volunteer will not have the same responsibilities as the
qualified employees. The volunteer should not become a “viewer” but an active
part of the activities. The volunteer should like working and speaking with
young people about their problems, wishes and ideas. He/ she should be able to
give help to organize activities. In ideal case the volunteer plans an own
project and can bring in own ideas. So, if he/she is interested in sports
he/she could organize sport activities like a soccer cup or a skate event, a
basketball workshop or a dance training. The volunteer could take a supporting
role in developing new perspectives for the future for the children/youngsters.
The volunteer will bring new aspects into our daily life by contributing a
foreign language (his/her mother's tongue) and his/her personal intercultural
background, which will enrich the lives of the children and young people.
Due to the target group in the Youth Point we prefer
volunteers over 20 years. The volunteer should be flexible and show interest and
motivation for this project. It is very important that the volunteer is
open-minded, outgoing, patient, friendly and communicative in the work with
youngsters. You should not be afraid to stay with a group of young people
inside or outside the Youth Point. The basic knowledge of the German language
would be an advantage but is not a must since the team colleagues speak English
as well. Concerning the transfer between Graz and Birkfeld it would be an
advantage if the volunteer has a driving license.
Please send your application/CV and SPECIFIC motivation
letter until 19/12/2011 to the coordinating organisation LOGO jugendmanagement
gmbh. EVS coordinator: Christine Gantner, christine.gantner@logo.at. Please
express why you want to participate exactly in this project. Only applications
with SPECIFIC motivation letters sent to the mail adresse above will be
considered.Please don't forget to indicate the name and number of the project
you apply to.
