Closely to the holidays, KERIC lived by English. 12 youth workers from Poland, Czech and Slovak Republic came to study English for 7 days, to improve their work with computers and work with youngsters.

This year we decided to expand our team of leaders for the camps. First of all we wrote appeal on Facebook and those people who applied for, we sent to a two days long training where they received a lot of information about how to become a good leader in the camp.

ideas into action

Project "Ideas into action - enterprise for youth workers based on local needs" is a great opportunity for young people across Europe. Sharing good ideas and support for the future enterprise. 

  From September 2011, 15 countries started cooperation worldwide so they could create functional network of organizations for sending and hosting volunteers.

Our project "Steps towards change", that began in September 2011 and joins 15 organizations from 15 countries from all over the world, is getting succesfully toward its aim. After common meeting in February 2012 in Slovakia, each partner continued working in local level. The work consisted of information meetings for young people and non-profit organizations about the possibilities of international volunteering.

In October we greeted representatives from East-European, Caucasian and European countries in KERIC already for the second time. The aim was to strengthen the cooperation with this region and create possibilities for expandation of number of young people who can take part in EVS in this region. Moreover we want more volunteers from these countries so we could help to mutual cognition of these cultures.

 

My name is Nathan Winder and I am 20 years old. I am a sports coaching degree undergraduate at University of central lancashire but my university campus is lancaster and morecambe college. I am currently undergoing a volunteering exercise with an organisation called Keric in Cadca, Slovakia. I have only been here for a few days so my initial working experience hasnt begun yet. All the people in keric have been friendly and kind which has been reassurring for both me and my classmate as we have never visited Slovakia before.

From 16th to 20th January, it was again possible to hear Russian, Englisg and other exotic languages in Čadca. In KERIC, we organized a training for representatives from Russia, Georgia, Moldavia, Lithuania, Macedonia, France, Italy and Czech Republic. The main objective of the meeting was to expend cooperation within the volunteering among these countries.
