VOLUNTEERING WITH UNEMPLOYED YOUTH – JOB TRAINING & BASIC SKILLS
Hosting organisation: BETA, Volkshilfe Tirol
BETA qualifies young people between 15 and 24 years for work and for finding a job. Most of the youngsters who come to BETA have learning difficulties and are having trouble in finding a job. About 10 youngsters are employed at BETA for one year period that should prepare them for real employment after this training programme.
Project duration: 12 months, 01.10.2020-31.09.2021
Tasks and activities: Getting in contact with the youngsters and supporting them in the learning process. The volunteer assists the youngsters in their preparation for working life and will get to know the working areas. The volunteer’s role is to support the trainers team in the daily work. For example: training school subjects and helping with home work, assisting in the work on computers (e.g. writing CVs and job application, researching…), but also t raining social and soft skills and welcoming new youth to BETA. Furthermore, the volunteer could accompany the youngsters in the sheltered workshops – doing gardening, practical work and handcrafts assignments.
BETA’ s daily work has the big goal to support and empower young people to use their resources and talents. The volunteer is invited to develop and implement a few of his/her own ideas during the project (e.g. workshop, organising an excursion, leading a creative activity, health or cooking project…).
