ESC IN KRITZENDORF, AUSTRIA

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

BASIC INFO: Organisation: Kindergruppe Wasserfloh; Activity location: Herzogenburggasse 13, 3420 Kritzendorf Austria; Start: 01/02/2021; Duration: 52 weeks; Deadline to apply: 10/01/2021; Activity topics: Social challenges; Education and training; Creativity and culture

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

The Kindergruppe Wasserfloh is a private kindergarden in which a professional team is caring for a group of 14 children between 2 ½ and 6 years of age. We are a non-profit organization run by the parents of the children attending the kindergarten. The Kindergruppe Wasserfloh offers a family like and nature-close environment in a kindergarten with a big garden situated at the foot of the Vienna Wood hills. Much of the time is spent outside. For several years we offer the chance for volunteers from around the world in getting experience in alternative pedagogy. Our educational principles are the concepts developed by Rebecca and Mauricio Wild and Maria Montessori. We respect our children as individuals and meet them at eye level. Our understanding of education is more to accompany the children and support them according to their individual needs rather than to lecture them. We continuously attempt to strengthen our skills in non-violent communication.

ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS

The children meet the volunteer openly and just live cross-cultural understanding by sharing ideas and interests, telling stories, role-playing, cooking and singing songs together. We expect the volunteer to help the team in all daily routines, from washing dishes and warm food to helping the children with getting dressed or support them in implementing their ideas of handicraft, watching books or making music together. Being attentive to perceive the children’s needs is one of the most important qualities a volunteer should bring.

TRAINING DURING THE ACTIVITY

For the time of the ESC project, which is lasting 10 to 12 months, the volunteer will be integrated in the cultural lives of the parents in Kritzendorf and the surrounding villages. In the nearby surrounding, usually other volunteers are hosted by different organizations, like the Freiraum school next door, the Montessori-school Kreamont in St.Andrä Wördern, and other projects in Vienna.

PARTICIPANT PROFILE

We are looking for volunteers aged between 18-27 years. Basically, volunteers should love to spend time with small children, support them in their activities, work together with a team and show interest and motivation in cultural exchange. Basics in german are required.

HOW TO APPLY:

We will study carefully all applications and selected candidates will be invited for a Skype interview. The selection of volunteers will take place in the upcoming weeks.

For the selection of the volunteers we will need:

– Europass CV with picture (made in the last month) with Skype username included.

– Motivational letter, writing that your sending organisation will be “Enjoy Sicily”. We ask all candidates to send a specific letter of motivation – why they want to volunteer with us rather than just a general EVS one. The volunteer is chosen according to his/her motivation and interest in the project and the activities. It will be paid special attention to cover letters.
