Open minds in Granollers
Description: This work camp will be help on a young prisoner’s center. These youngsters are between 18 and 25 years old and live on this center to serve time for what they did, but also gaining new personal, social and professional skills for a brighter future. Having international volunteers work directly with them will be a way of promoting their empowerment and inclusion through team work.
Type of Work: International volunteers will work on social and educational activities. The idea is to organize recreational and sports activities and various artistic and creative workshops, looking for more original and novel proposals than are usually carried out. It will be a time to develop intercultural activities, share experiences and learnings.
If the volunteer can offer his/her knowledge about some training it will be great to share with the inmates.
Make it fun, creative and enjoyable for everyone.
The time of the activities in the center: Starts at 8.30 am - ends at 14h. Occasionally there will be some afternoon activities in the center.
Study Theme: Volunteers will have the chance to learn more about social reintegration and how to promote new skills on these youngsters to make them motivated to improve their lives after serving time in the center.
Accommodation: Volunteers will all sleep together at a community center. They have to bring a sleeping bag and also mat. Food will be bought and cooked together.
Break Coffee: In the morning we will do a break in the bar. If you want to drink or eat something you have to pay for it. Reasonable price. For example: 1 bottle of water, 1 coffee and a sandwich it cost 2.50 euros.
