Description:

This project focuses on human rights education activities that will be carried out by the volunteers in schools in Reykjavik. The aim is to increase awareness about human rights among elementary school-aged children and early adolescents through a non-formal education approach. Volunteers will have the opportunity to explore first-hand the Icelandic education environment and put in practice their passion for human rights.

The volunteers will be encouraged to learn more about human rights. In the process, they will also learn how to talk about human rights in an international environment and how to effectively communicate with children. The international volunteer projects are joined by people from diverse backgrounds and in different stages of their lives. This diverse environment represents a constant learning opportunity for the volunteers involved which will give the project a very international and cross-cutting profile. The mutual exchange will enrich both the volunteers and the children. Volunteers will have the opportunity to challenge themselves on how to teach a topic like human rights to children.

The volunteers and the group leaders will spend the first days of the project discussing and planning the activities they would like to carry out in the school. To do this, training materials on human rights education will be consulted and they will receive input from teachers on which topics to cover during the activities with the students. Discussions and free initiative among the volunteers will be encouraged in order to involve them as much as possible into the activity planning. Volunteers can be asked to do some research on the topic on their own before arriving.

Dates: November 26 - December 6, 2019

Qualifications:

As it is outdoors work, volunteers shall be ready to adapt and be flexible with the working and free-time schedule, as depending on the weather, we may not be able to perform some of the tasks or activities planned.


Training:

There will be an orientation meeting on the first day of the project.


Benefits:

Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
