Fundacja Integracji Społecznej Prom

Info about EVS experience:

Since its inception, the Foundation Prom gained numerous experience in working with young people from different backgrounds, running different projects (keeping integrative community centers, summer and winter camps, green schools). Before we started the adventure of EVS in our children centers and in the office we hosted numerous volunteers and trainees from Wroclaw University (an average of 5 persons per year), past pupils of our clubs continued cooperation and helped us during trips and events as volunteers. We learned how to support them, teach and organize their work. Another goal and challenge was European Voluntary Service that is why since 2009 we have accreditation to host volunteers in the "Youth in Action" and in 2014 won re-accreditation in Erasmus +. To date we have completed 11 projects involving 30 volunteers. At the moment We coordinate 3 projects with 19 volunteers working in (in 2 of them We are CO and in one – HO). Hosting their allow us available resources, personnel, premises and many interesting projects and events that we realize. Every year, the project enjoys growing interest from potential volunteers, as evidenced we have numerous inquiries about the possibility of cooperation. In 2011 we obtained the status of the sending and coordinating EVS organization. In 2014 was the first time that we coordinated hosting project in the Association Song of the Goat Theatre. Two volunteers work in the organization of the Festival "Brave Kids". The project was repeated in 2016 and will have next edition in 2017. At the moment We coordinate 3 projects in 5 kindergartens and one association. Starting from February We will start fourth project for 10 new EVS volunteers (in kindergartens, primary schools and Brave Festival).
We employ 2 coordinators and 3 mentors, but from February this number will increase.
