We are looking for EVS volunteers for the following Project:
Wohnheim St. Martin (Home for disabled people, Klosterneuburg)
Project Dates: 01.09.2013-28.2.2014 (Dates are flexible)
Project duration: 6 months
Number of volunteers needed: 2
Klosterneuburg is a small town, bordering Vienna. Within 30 minutes, the city centre of Vienna is reachable by public transport. The volunteer would live at the project. This means that all meals are provided at the project, together with the clients and the staff. Special food arrangements (vegetarian, etc) are possible as well.
For a mentoring programm, Grenzenlos will be responsible. Grenzenlos will offer the volunteer the opportunity to meet other volunteers in Vienna and will also be offering an additional mentoring structure for the volunteer, where he or she can ask questions or complain if necessary. Grenzenlos will mediate if necessary.
A volunteer is able to give new inputs to our afternoon program, which is very welcome for our regular staff, who does not always have time and creativity. New ideas regarding activities are more then welcome. We wish that a volunteer develops an own project, according to his/her interest, for example a music project or an art project.
The volunteer will support the staff and the clients of our home with the daily program, but we wish also that a volunteer develops his/her own ideas regarding an extension of our leisure time and afternoon program. In the course of his/her voluntary service, this idea can be developed and realised. The volunteer will not be alone with a group of clients and will share responsibility with other staff members. If the volunteer wants to, he or she can go on an excursion with one or two clients.
Since the project site is dealing with disabled people, the volunteer should be willing and like to work with them. Therefore, the volunteers are expected to be open minded with any situation s/he has.
Project will cover:
Travel costs - 90%
Visa costs – 100%
Accommodations and food – 100%.
