Project description
The EVS volunteer will be involved in the one-year-development process of the 10 young persons who are supported by BETA. The volunteer will get to know and participate in BETA’s work.

The volunteer should assist the youngsters in their preparation for working life and will get to know the working areas. The volunteer’s role is to support the trainer’s team in the daily work with the youngsters – examples are: talking to the teenagers, especially training school subjects (Maths, German, English…) on a daily basis, helping them with easy tasks when using the computers (e.g. writing CVs and job applications, researching…), assist them in doing school exercises, monitoring some orders of external partners, social training, welcoming new youth to BETA, playing and healthy lifestyle (healthy food awareness). Furthermore, the volunteer could accompany the youngsters when they work in the gardening or in the sheltered workshops. The volunteer can also implement special offers and activities for the youngsters.
Getting in contact with the target group / supporting them in their tasks

The volunteer will be a young contact person for the youngsters – a person they can talk to, a person who is interested in their work and with whom they can share their thoughts. There could be many approaches to getting in contact with our young people. The volunteer will find out his own approach to the work, supported by employees.

The volunteer might accompany the youngsters when they go on excursions or if they have a job interview. As most of the teenagers have some problems in integrate themselves in a social environment, the volunteer could be a helping hand in teaching social skills.

With the group of 10 youngsters, the volunteer can learn to be a kind mediator if conflicts between young group members occur. The volunteer also has the chance to cook with the youngsters and raise their awareness on health and . If the volunteer has awareness for gender problems the volunteer is welcome to implement such issues in the daily work as well. There will always be the support of the whole team of BETA.

Developing own ideas 
BETA’s daily work has the big goal to support and empower young people to use their resources. We would like to invite the volunteer to develop and implement a few of his/her own ideas during the project. The volunteer’s projects can be of different kinds and can either happen spontaneously or be sustainable (doing a special workshop, developing documentation material, organising an excursion, doing a creative or participative project, health or cooking project…).

Practical infos:
The volunteer will have a room in the hosting organisation’s building in the centre of Wörgl. She/he will have an own private room and private bathroom. Furthermore, there will be privacy in the kitchen and rooms when nobody is working (evenings, nights, weekends, Friday afternoon…). During the day, the kitchen and computer rooms etc. are used commonly (with the teenagers and staff). The volunteer has to accept the house rules of the hosting organisation.
The town Wörgl lies in the middle of the Alps and there are warm summers and cold winters. There are several possibilities for summer and winter sports. The volunteer will get a free annual ticket to the local swimming pool. Wörgl has good infrastructure, numerous bars and stores or outdoor and indoor facilities for leisure time and good train connections to Innsbruck, the capital of Tyrol. Innsbruck is at only 30 minutes by train. Local people speak a German dialect (“Tirolerisch”). The majority of people in Tyrol can speak English, especially young people.
The volunteer will receive monthly EUR 415,– (includes pocket money and money for food).
