WAVES IV: We Are Volos’ ESs IV is a full-time voluntary service that will run in the framework of European Solidarity Corps. It will be supported by KEKPA-DIEK, the Municipal Enterprise of the Municipality of Volos in central Greece (SUPPORTING ORGANISATION), which will be also the receiving organization (HOSTING ORGANISATION) and will be realised in the city of Volos. KEKPA-DIEK offers activities for the volunteers in its following structures: (1) Day Nurseries for pre-school age children, (2) Centres for Creative Activities of children 6-12 years old, (3) Centres for Creative Activities of Children with Disabilities, (4) Day-Care Centre for people with disabilities, (5) Romas Support Centre. There is possibility for voluntary work in other cooperating structures of KEKPA-DIEK (e.g. City museum of Volos, etc). The service will provide the candidate volunteers with: accommodation, food, insurance, monthly allowance, on-line language training, support and mentoring.
ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS
Accommodation will be provided in an apartment in the centre of Volos city fully equipped. Volunteers have to share a common kitchen equipped with electric stove, refrigerator, washing machine. Food allowance will be provided by the hosting organization and the volunteers should return to the organisation the essential proving documents (invoices, receipts, etc). Each volunteer will have a Greek mobile / telephone card, a local bus card, and a bicycle.
TRAINING DURING THE ACTIVITY
The service offers a strong experience both on professional and personal level. The volunteer will have the chance to follow his/her scheduled learning plan in a selected – from the beginning of the service – centre/structure of KEKPA-DIEK, in order to develop professional skills, to set personal criteria for the analysis of priorities, needs and problems, to share his/her work, expectations, joys, fears, to acquire an intercultural dimension in a multi-cultural setting, to adapt and cope with new challenges and teamwork, to share responsibilities, etc.
We would like to host volunteers who demonstrate a strong interest for the main themes of the project and main areas of activities. Previous experiences and knowledge in the issues mentioned are welcomed but not essential to be selected as a volunteer. A specific volunteers motivation letter to take part in this project is important and also its coherence with personal and vocational future plans.

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.
