|Venerdì 25 Maggio 2012 08:35|
Per conto di una fondazione nederlandese (che è anche un centro giovanile nonchè monastero dominicano) stiamo cercando con urgenza un ragazzo che abbia tra i 20 e i 27 anni per un progetto già approvato del Servizio Volontario Europeo.
Il volontario selezionato ha dovuto rinunciare e, quindi, siamo alla ricerca di un nuovo volontario, sempre maschio, che abbia voglia di partire a fine esate per 10 mesi per questa bella cittadina dei Paesi Bassi.
La località è Zwolle, capoluogo della provincia nederlandese di Overijssel, sulla destra dell'Ijssel, al punto di incrocio di numerosi canali.
Questa particolarità e chiese e palazzi in stile gotivo ne fanno una delle città più belle dell'area. Vi è anche una zona più moderna della città caratterizzata da edifici tipici dell'Art Nouveau. L'Organizzazione Ospitante è Stichting Dominicanenklooster - Jongerencentrum ´t WasdoM (2010-NL-22). Candidarsi solo se si è ragazzi tra i 20 e i 27 anni e si è disponibili a partire a settembre 2012 (preferibilmente a inizio mese) e a restare fino a fine giugno 2013.
Trattandosi di un progetto già approvato, il candidato selezionato avrà la certezza di partire. Del progetto faranno parte anche altri volontari e volontarie provenienti da diversi Paesi europei.
Come sempre per lo SVE, il viaggio A/R é rimborsato al 90%, mentre vitto e alloggio sono pagati in toto, cosí come l'assicurazione ed un corso base della lingua locale. Previsto anche un pocket money mensile.
Se interessati, inviateci cv, motivation letter specifica (entrambi in inglese e su due file di testo distini) ed una vostra foto (su file immagine) attraverso l'apposito form entro il 28 maggio. Nella lettera motivazionale spiegate bene perché volete fare l'EVS (European Voluntary Service), perché vorreste fare volontariato all'estero, quali sono i motivi che vi spingolo a far domanda per questo progetto in particolare e perché sareste il candidato ideale. Inutile inviare lettere motivazionali di poche righe e dove non sono specificate dettagliatamente le ragioni che vi spingono a far domanda per questo progetto: senza forti motivazioni la HO non vi prenderebbe in considerazione, quindi fate attenzione!
Solo le candidature complete saranno prese in considerazione.
Di seguito i dettagli del progetto.
Host & Coordinating Organisation Ref. / Project Code: 2010-NL-22

PROJECT DESCRIPTION Wasdom is a youth centre located on the grounds of a Dominican Monastery in the city centre of Zwolle, The Netherlands. The Netherlands is located in Northwestern Europe. The capital is Amsterdam and the seat of government is The Hague. The Netherlands is often called Holland. The word Dutch is used to refer to the people, the language, and anything pertaining to the Netherlands. The Netherlands is a geographically low-lying country, with about 20% of its area and its population located below sea level preserved through a system of polders and dikes. The Netherlands is known for its windmills, tulips, clogs, delftware, gouda cheese, visual artists, bicycles, traditional values, and civil virtues such as its social tolerance. Zwolle is an old Hanzecity in the Northeast part of the Netherlands situated along the river IJssel. Zwolle has a beautiful historic city center where you can still feel the rich history and tradition of the city. Zwolle is also a modern city, the vivid capital of the province Overijssel with over 118.000 inhabitants, and a large student population. The Dominican monastery is situated right next to the inner circle of the historic city centre of Zwolle. The Dominican Order is a Catholic religious order of Preachers and value study, encounter, dialogue and charity. The Dominican monastery is very much involved in the society and the local community is very much involved in the monastery. Residents, workers and volunteers underscribe the philosophy "having an open dialogue with people who think differently". On the grounds of the Dominican monastery, on the second floor of the former laundry and bakery, youth centre 't WasdoM is situated. The atmosphere of the nearby monastery gives 't WasdoM it's unique face. Typical for the Dominical philosophy is: - maintaining an open dialogue with people who think differently - searching for what is meaningful and important in every day life-experiences - A life style which is going beyond materialistic values - Hospitality to people who need an safe place to stay or to work
The foundations of the youth centre has been established through the Dominican Monastery and hence there are still strong ties with the church and its surroundings. Therefore all volunteers should be willing and open to doing voluntary work within a Christian environment. In general an open mind, respect for yourself and other people and good social skills are very important in order to live together with 'strangers' in one house for 10 months.

WasdoM is a meeting place for young people aged 18 - 30 year; a place where you find new people and new ideas. Young people are invited to think about their personal history and future, family and friends, social and political environment and the world we live in. Our encounter and dialogue is based on mutual respect for ourselves and others. In 't WasdoM young people find space for their unique selves and learn to make space for the uniqueness of others. Activities: - Place to meet - Participate in one of the youth programs - Create your own youth program - Coaching - Visit the monastery and meet the people who live there - Walk-in cafe (for wining and dining) - Youth and student art exhibitions - Inter-religious meeting and dialogue - Exchange program - Voluntary work - European Voluntary Service 't WasdoM has a group of international volunteers organized through the EVS scheme. These young volunteers get the opportunity to experience the reality of youth work and other voluntary services in and around the city of Zwolle. Their diverse backgrounds, cultures and experiences bring a new perspective to youth centre 't WasdoM. Volunteers are actively participating in all aspects of 't WasdoM. There is an active exchange of views between Dutch people involved in the youth centre and these EVS volunteers. 't Wasdom pays special attention to the formation of these volunteers. That means apart from their volunteer work, there is also time to talk, think and work around themes concerning matters such as religion, society and those around us. The co-ordination of activities is carried out by the supervisors of 't WasdoM project hence the program is made by the youth workers, but volunteers have influence in what they would like to discuss. Each week there is time to reflect on experiences and learning. The international volunteers live together as a small international community in a house, named 't DAK (the roof) nearby 't WasdoM.
