EVS at Spjald SFO
Duration of the project
- Start: 01/08/2015
- End: 01/05/2016
We want to create an intercultural understanding in our SFO. We want to give our volunteer an opportunity to make their mark on everyday life through sporting activities, and games. The specific activities of the volunteer will be adjusted to the qualifications and interests of the specific volunteer. The volunteer will also be working together with the staff and be guided and supported when needed.
We think it is very exciting and inspiring to have a person of a different culture in our institution, and we hope and expect that the volunteer will be able to inspire us by sharing his/her ideas and thoughts from his/her cultural background, as well as we can inspire the volunteer.
The volunteer will be part of the daily life in the SFO. This means that you will have time in the SFO and in the teaching at the school. The volunteer position offers the volunteer the opportunity to learn about Danish SFO’s and the ideas and philosophy the activities was build on. As the Danish educational system is moving towards more focus on physical activities as part of the development of the child, the volunteer will also be part of this. As Spjald is a small town, the volunteer will also learn about life conditions in the Danish countryside. The volunteer will be expected to take part in our daily life and the existing activities and traditions of the institution, but he/she will also have the opportunity to contribute with new projects and activities. We would also like the volunteer to share his/her country’s traditions with the children and thus give them an insight in another culture. We will do our best to help and support the volunteer so that the EVS-stay with us will meet his/her expectations. The activities will be adjusted according to the volunteer’s wishes and interests when he/she arrives.
We prefer a volunteer to have a background with childcaring, and that the volunteer has the ability to interact with the children in a good and meaningful way. The volunteer should be interested in working with children, and interested in the development of children. The volunteer should be openminded and able to speak English on a conversational level.
