ESC PROJECT AT AWESOME PEOPLE

16th May 2022 – 15th May 2023, Sweden

YOUTH, NON FORMAL LEARNING ACTIVITIES, HUMAN RIGHTS, MEDIA, AND COMMUNICATION

Awesome People is a part of the ESC (European Solidarity Corps) and holds a Quality Label as Lead organisation which means we can receive and send volunteers. In the frame of the European Solidarity Corps program we are able to welcome  6 long-term  ESC volunteers (for 12 months,  from 16th May 2022 – 15th May 2023).

We specifically welcome volunteers from the NEET group, people with a migrant background, LGBTQ+ representatives, and persons with autism or mental disabilities.

 

Volunteer’s role and tasks

The volunteer’s main role in this project is to assist in arranging activities while visiting schools, lead workshops, develop projects, take care of our social media, help with day-to-day and ongoing tasks, and implement your own ideas. 

 

Activity support role:

  • Prepare, set up, and assist project activities for youngsters at schools or for other participants of the project, physical or online

  • Assist in different weekly activities with themes of workshops, educational escape room games, training and youth exchanges

  • Prepare rooms and equipment for activities lead by others, physical or online

  • Plan, prepare, and arrange local activities for young people (volunteer meetings, cultural presentations, international camps, language meetings)

Social media development role:

  • Create social media content for Facebook, Instagram, YouTube channel and Tiktok 

  • Create promotional material about our activities such as flyers, posters, and invitations (it is preferable if volunteers have some graphic design skills and have experience in Canva, InDesign, or Photoshop)

  • Document the projects and activities through films, podcasts, pictures, and text

  • Work with Zoom

  • Work with  technical equipment, such as a camera, microphone, video creation programs, and editing

Working times

The volunteers will be working for 38 hours per week. Usually during weekdays but sometimes they will work on weekends and evenings. Volunteers are encouraged to take courses in Swedish which are included in their working hours.

Besides 2 days off per week, volunteers are granted another 24 days off for 12 months (2 days off per month).

 

Team: as a volunteer, you will work in a team of 3-6 people; these might be other volunteers (local and international), project leaders, and project assistants.

 

We are looking for 6 volunteers who:

  • Enjoy working in a team with people with different backgrounds and needs 

  • Have empathy and support our values

  • Want to work with youngsters with fewer opportunities

  • Are flexible and creative, enjoy both office work (planning, meetings, brainstorming) but also enjoy participating and organizing activities for young people and other more practical tasks

  • Enjoy hosting events and leading activities

  • Are interested in digital and social media

  • Open to do their own projects or take their own initiative to start to bring new ideas into action

 

Food and pocket money

The volunteers receive food money (2 000 SEK) and pocket money every month. The pocket money is 150€ in SEK. The money is given at the beginning of the month and it is the responsibility of the volunteer to manage it well.

 

Accommodation and transport

Awesome people's main location is our office in Örebro city where the volunteers will work with different activities. The volunteers will be accommodated in Kopparberg town, 100 km from Örebro where our organisation will have some local and international activities. 

The volunteers will receive Länstrafiken Örebro County's monthly card, which means that they can travel by train and bus as much as they want within Örebro County and can easily get to Awesome Peoples office in Örebro. Volunteers will have access to bicycles as well to get around Kopparberg.
