KERIC hosted 10 youth workers from all over Slovakia during the period of 20 to 24 October 2009. They came here to learn about EVS, improve their English conversation and computer skills needed for hosting EVS volunteers in their organisations in the future. 

On 22 May 2009 KERIC launched a new activity whose aim was to provide space for entertainment in the main square and connect skilled and gifted young people from the local community with our volunteers and create a new interesting programme. The youth from Čadca was represented by two hip-hop groups Kindergang and Dance Factory, metal group The scar, a boys drum group, international music group The Gu-da (consisting of our volunteers Giuseppe, Daniel and boys from Čadca), etc. Guests were also Capoeira club from Žilina, ex-volunteers Lenka and Vladka, etc.  

A great thing about the event was the wide range of genres, styles, approaches and mixture of nationalities. The speakers also interviewed the volunteers currently hosted by KERIC or those who have been sent abroad.

This has been a completely new experience for the whole KERIC team. We hope to organise this event again next year - with new ideas and improvements. Looking forward to KERIC Activity 2010!  

We would like to invite you to a KERIC ACTIVITY  taking place in the square in front of the Cultural House on Friday 22nd May 2009. You can enjoy concerts  of young musician groups from Cadca, samba and capoeira performances, hip-hop dance, interviews with the international volunteers in KERIC, ex-volunteers who had been abroad, and a lot more...

Our volunteers Gerard, Rodolfo, Giovanna, Giuseppe, Ulli and Dario are inviting you all to a new regular activity - the Tuesday café. It is an open space for everybody to take part in (hopefully) interesting discussions and workshops. The topics planned for this month are Brasilian dances, Italian mafia, and Life of a foreigner in Slovakia. The Tuesday café will take place in the KERIC Underground club, at 6:30 pm - of course on Tuesdays :) Everybody is welcome. 

EuroAsian empowerment

We have decided to widen our cooperation among non-profit organisations in Europe (France, Italy, the Czech Republic and Slovakia) and in Asia (Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia) in the field of volunteering.
