Message Organisation

We are looking for volunteers who are strong team players and who have a strong 'Give it a go' attitude! Volunteers must be prepared to present (our programmes involve drama, music and more) in English, although they will be supported in developing their confidence and clarity. Volunteers will ideally be interested in performing arts and be willing to learn and try out new things. This will apply to all areas of work the volunteer may get involved in. Volunteers must be happy to work with children. If they have had previous experience that is great, however we will provide training. It is important that they have a flexible and have a creative attitude and are happy, at times, to work independently.

Educational Presentations: Volunteers will be trained to deliver 20 minute assembly presentations based around a bible story, which will be shared with children in primary schools. This will involve use of drama, music, video and more. These presentations will support EU objectives around wellbeing, both in the context of the UK but also with reference to other counties, as it introduces key EU themes around combating prejudice, global issues and raising awareness of poverty. A key feature of these presentations is focused on supporting children in 'learning to participate'. In this way we seek to encourage children to recognise their ability to get involved as we tackle directly inclusion, empowering children to participate and engage, as they develop mutual understanding of others.

Community Projects: Working in schools, churches, and other community spaces, the participants would provide safe spaces for children to come and get involved in a range of different activities. These activities will vary between toddler groups, Brownies, Rainbows and supporting existing youth clubs.

Some of these projects are already running and participants will be invited to bring fresh ideas to these groups. However, we will also be looking to harness the participants own interests and passions to set up new groups benefiting these communities. Such projects we know have a real impact on intercultural awareness and developing mutual understanding between different countries. All these projects again focus on the need to promote inclusion within society as they seek to find ways to engage children through sport, friendship, music, craft or other actives, and find ways that allow children to recognise their place in their communities, through quality youth programmes.
