Plataforma de Teleformación
Plaza en Letonia

NGO “Universum” from Latvia, Valmiera is looking for 2 motivated volunteers who would like to participate in an EVS project under the Erasmus+ program. Volunteers (from EU countries only!) will be hosted from 01/09/2015 – 30/06/2014 (10 months)

We would like to receive your CV and project profile orientated motivation letter till January 5, 2015 to the e-mail address evs@uni-versum.lv. Please contact us if you have any questions!

Information about the host (receiving) organization and volunteers’ tasks:

NGO 'Universum' is an organization established in 2005 and it has achieved a public benefit status in Republic of Latvia. We work basically in 3 fields - education, social assistance and free time activities for children and families. In order to realize the objectives of the association, our activities include:
- various seminars and conferences;
- camps for children and adults;
- we established the only Christian founded Montessori kindergarten and primary school in Vidzeme region in Latvia in 2011. 
- we develop exchanges between educational institutions, social and religious organizations;
- social assistance for poor people since 2012.

Since 2005 our activities have been associated with children, adolescents and youth camps. At the end of 2011 our organization expanded our operations by establishing a pre-school educational institution 'Universum'. Kindergarten was opened on January 9, 2012. Primary education is also available in the combined classes (1-3rd grade and 4th-6th grade) and also we cooperate with parents who teach their children at home (home-schooling). In the nearest future we plan to develop full primary education for classes from 1-9 as well as distance learning program.

After this we noticed the need to develop a support network for parents, families. This decision was based on the fact that we think that the school and the family must act closer together. We wanted to build a healthy, open environment where we can learn together with children. Thus in September 2012 we opened the first store of social assistance in Valmiera - second hand shop where little-used and new clothes and other items are for sale. Proceeds from sales are donated to the school and support of families with children with special needs.

 

For volunteers we can offer mainly work in educational field - kindergarten and primary school. Both are using Montessori methodology for educating kids. It means that our approach is non-formal, without frontal presentations but we put individual attention to each kid and use a lot of practical activities in education process. If there will be an interest from the volunteer, we can also offer to help us in social assistance field (social entrepreneurship) and organizing camps. We are ready to adapt our need with volunteers’ interests and create a project for the concrete volunteers – for this your motivation is most important! See you!
