Dette projekt tilbydes i samarbejde med AFS Chile og nedenfor kan du læse deres beskrivelse af programmet:

Santiago is not only the capital, but it is the biggest and most populated city in the country. Santiago, as other big cities, offers
a full range of activities for all public. Here you can be a volunteer in Fundación Crescendo and help to young adults with
intellectual disabilities, fx with Downs syndrome, to have better job opportunities by participating on different workshops and creating links with local business. You will support therapists, and facilitators on the activities held in place, such as arts, cooking, dance, yoga, games etc. Your tasks will depend on your interests as well, they can include participation in events, workshops and projects, as well as helping in the daily tasks.

The mission of Fundación Crescendo is to integrate and give special attention to the young people and adults with intellectual disabilities as well as to promote their active participation in the society. As a volunteer, you will have a meaningful impact because you will directly contribute to the wellbeing and development of persons with intellectual disability. Your actions will bring joy and smiles.

At the same time, you will be a part of an inclusive community based on values such as tolerance and respect, you will meet people of different backgrounds and experiences, and you will broaden your worldview.

About this type of community service project: 

When you choose an individual community service project, you commit yourself to getting to know the culture of the country where you are going to. Your work will take considerable time, but you will also have lots of time to explore the area around you, to meet with the locals, and get a deep sense of their values and way of living. Through being a volunteer abroad, you are allowing yourself to truly integrate, become a part of the local community and get a daily life that is very similar to the one of the local people around you.

 

When it comes to your area of volunteer work, there is a lot of possibilities to choose from. The description you read on our website is usually just an example, and rarely are two projects exactly the same. AFS is a big network with a lot of connections to schools, kindergartens, NGO’s. It is not one specific school or a kindergarten that AFS Colombia cooperates with, but rather many possibilities, and in fact all around the country. We are happy to receive your preferences, but we can also help you find the right placement, if you are not quite certain what you would like to work with, or where in the country you would like to live.

 

Your host family is one of the closest people you will have while on programme – they will be your family, they might take you to Sunday lunches with the grandmother, but also ask you to clean and cook, as they do. They might want to show you around their country and take you on trips, and they might also want you to come back home by 10 pm, if they ask the same of their children. You should expect that every host family is different and has their own rules and way of living. You can look forward to getting an intimate insight into a life, that might be so completely different from yours.

 

Besides from your host family, you will have a local contact person, who will be your support with anything that you would need, from practical questions and needs, to cultural tips and advice.

 

On this programme, you should expect to be surrounded by the locals, be that your host family, the collegues at your work or local contact person. During your stay, you might meet other international volunteers from time to time, but they might live in completely different cities.
