YMCA na Slovensku (Slovakia, PIC number: 947980322) is acredited sending, receiving and coordinating organization for European Voluntary Service (EVS) funded by Erasmus+. We receive international volunteers every year who work as a part of Roma community centres in Jelsava and Liptovsky Mikulas and help with other activities such as informal language education, charity events, Summer camps, sport activities, etc. Volunteers are welcome to create own activity or small project during their EVS in cooperation with local YMCA.
3 – 6 international volunteer placements are available each year in each receiving organization, usually from September for 12 months but we are open to receive volunteers all year round, depending on mutual agreement and available funding. More information to each placement are below.
We are currently open for volunteer applications for 2016 / 2017:
- daily activities in Roma community centre: kindergarten, afterschool club, music club and others depending on interest of local community
- other YMCA activities according to current offer (non-formal language education, Summer and Winter camps, charity events, etc.)
- own initiative/project (e.g. involvement with local students, own workshops, etc.) according to volunteers interest and abilities
