Work experience is essential for getting a job. The Young Workers Volunteer Programme is aimed at young adults who want to clarify career goals and gain intercultural knowledge.
This 12-month programme provides you with an easily accessible opportunity for effecting positive societal change through volunteering, while improving your skills and competences for personal, educational, and professional development. Non-formal and formal learning opportunities during the program will enable you to acquire essential competences for personal growth in order to become an Active Global Citizen, thereby improving your employment prospects and facilitating your transition into the labor market.
The various projects in this program are looking for young, highly motivated team members to play an active part in their organisation and to contribute to the daily work routine of the organisation. The following project is one of the projects participating in the program.
