During the opening times the volunteer will be present in the youth centre with the youth leaders. The main task is “being there” for the young people. Eg. Playing table tennis, offering them a cup of tea, cooking together, giving them the opportunity to talk about what goes on in their life, motivating them to try out new things, games, activities.
Beside that he/she will help the youth leaders to organise different projects, events (like excursions to interesting places, creativity workshops, intercultural cooking evenings, etc.) He/She will have the chance to bring in his/her own personality and culture. Depending on the skills and preferences of the volunteer he/s will be contributing what he/she can/wants to offer. Eg. Organising music workshops, a personal blog, creative decoration for the youth centre, designing flyers for the homepage etc. but also use his/her cultural background for a project, like an international evening.
