Bonfim with and for Youth 2
Description: MEDesTU is a youth association, that promotes the Arab and Islamic culture, trying to demystify prejudices. MEDesTU has a lot of activities during the year mostly for youth but also for all the people. We work with SCI workcamps, Erasmus+ Programme, oriental dance classes, intercultural trainings, etc. Our main goal is to empower young people through non formal education methodology.
Type of Work: Volunteers will participate in the restauration and renovation inside Alexandre Herculano high school in Bonfim, Porto. The school has almost 100 years of existence, hosting students aged between 12 and 18 years old (7th - 12th grade). This will be the second year when an international volunteer workcamp is going to be organised and implemented in the school/local context of Bonfim. Porto is the second biggest Portuguese city, located on the north and Bonfim neighbourhood belongs to the historical part of Porto (Portugal) that is under protection of UNESCO since 1996.
Study Theme: The aims of this intervention is to reinforce the relationship that the school has with its members but also the one it has within the parish of Bonfim and the city of Porto in general. The task of each volunteer is to encourage youngsters to join our intervention and learn through experience.
Accommodation: Participants will be sharing accommodation and will be provided with all the necessary conditions. Please bring your own sleeping bag. Food will be provided by the school canteen for lunch and participants will be able to cook their breakfast on their own and their dinners together with food provided. Special diets can be accommodated.
Language: English is considered to be this workcamp working language, but in case you would like to interact more with locals, we encourage you to learn some basic words in Portuguese before arrival. We will encourage some local students to provide us Portuguese basics learning moments.
Requirements: Any of selected volunteers should not be convicted or have any restrictions to work with children.
Approximate Location: The project is located in the parish of Bonfim, in Porto city (Oporto), Portugal.
