Joyce ‘n’ Fun is a social cooperative on the island of Skiathos, Greece.
Skiathos is a small island full of tourists in the summer but where young people don’t really have the opportunity to open up their mind the rest of the time. We created our social cooperative as a way to give to the children more opportunities to discover the world through the eyes of our volunteers. Our main objectives are to help children of all age discover foreign languages and cultures, through workshops, activities and games and help teenagers develop new talents in their more advanced workshops. In that way, we want to modernise education by promoting its non-formal, life-long forms.
Working and playing with the children and teenagers of Skiathos is a wonderful opportunity for all of volunteers to find again that lost child we all have in us. Sharing their knowledge of their own country’s habits and culture with the children and other volunteers helps them create a better identity as a citizen of their country but also of Europe. Our organization’s actions promote active citizenship, intercultural diversity and social involvement while we stimulate social and cultural tolerance to form an open minded civil society.
Those are our main activities for the summer (some will continue in the winter):
The “The 4 season of a greek island” activities are aimed for teenagers from 12 to 16 who will make a video and create a website to show the differences of the life on Skiathos in the winter and in the summer. The activity will be available to teenagers having difficulties in school because of their behavior, reaction to authority, etc. Our main goal will be to show them the possibility of a life-long education in a non-formal way, showing them learning can be fun and can be done “their way”.
The “Playing and learning… together !” workshops for the smaller children from 5 to 11 (crafts, theater play, music, sport etc) will be open to the public during the summer, our goal is to have both local and tourist children to help them develop their european identity and embrace different languages and cultures.
Three volunteers from Ukraine, Armenia and Spain will be involved in those projects. They might have skills in web designing, photography, children entertainment but more than that, the participants who will be chosen are the one who plan on continuing disseminating european awareness and diversity and whose ideas show how much he values intercultural and inter-religious dialogue, common values of freedom, tolerance and respect of human rights.
Language learning and self-assessment tools will be provided during our project, the volunteers will be invited to show initiative and will learn to live all together.
They will also organise EVS presentation events open to the public to present to the youth the opportunities offered by the Erasmus+ programs.
This project won’t only enhance the european identity of our participants but will also boost their skills and employability, adding an important asset in their CV and life in general.
We are looking for person who has some experience/interest in journalism and/or photography. He/she must have patience with children of all ages, a plus would be if he/she has experience with teenagers.
We would love it if he/she was vegan or at least doesn’t mind eating and cooking vegan. Living in community part seems to be quite important as well.
And once more: journalism/photography/video editing (at least one of the skills is needed).
The project is funded by the Erasmus+ Program. All expenses for visa, insurance, accommodation, food and international travel costs are fully covered. The volunteer will also receive pocket money monthly.
