EVS in Cluj-Napoca, Romania – “Europe: Experience Your Life”


Project description

Dates: 01  September 2017 – 31 May 2018

Our project Europe: Experience your life! is about using non-formal methods in youth work, like photo-voice, sensorial labyrinth theatre, theatre of the oppressed and different type of games. The volunteers will work with 3 different beneficiaries (kids from 2 schools, kids from roma communities in Cluj Napoca – there is a roma community here living on the garbage dump-  and Blaj, a nearby city). Also, this project involves work with children that live in a center for abused women.


We would prefer a male volunteer for this project , due to the fact that the children we work with need to have a male role model also, but this is not a compulsory criterion.  Experience in working with children is welcomed, but not mandatory. But it is really important to be aware that the project requires working with Roma children and youngsters living on the garbage dump so this means that the work  environment might be challenging or even difficult.

So, we are looking for someone who is enthusiastic and:

  • Supporter of non-formal education principles and benefits;
  • Motivated and interested in working with children and youngsters from underprivileged environments
  • Tolerant and respectful
  • Flexible, open minded, creative, yet caring and reliable
  • Able to communicate in English


Practical information:

Working and living conditions: Accommodation and allowance following EVS funding rules will be provided. The volunteers will live in a rented flat, equipped with all utilities.

Cluj-Napoca, as capital of historical region Transylvania, is one of the most visited cities in Romania. The city is very pleasant, and it is certainly a great experience for those who want to live for a period of time in Transylvania. Along with excellent cultural activities, a wonderful historical legacy and a great atmosphere, the city will certainly not disappoint those who add it to their travel itinerary. It is an university city with students from all over the world.
