Voluntary Work with Children in Pécs EVS project

 The volunteers can join 2 activities – the aim of the project is to help the children in 2 different ages:

The volunteers can work in the LIONS School Alternative Daycare deals with children of age 10-15 years.  (2. page)

The volunteers can work  in the Blue Elephant Kindergarten actively take part in the 3-7 year old children’s everyday life. (3. page)


The volunteers can make both activities with flexibility and interoperality or they can choose between them!


In the LIONS School Alternative Daycare the aim is, that the undererpriviliged children can get acquainted with other cultures, languages and mentalities from the most authentic sources. Near their intercultural development the other goals are to break through the children’s social and language barriers, and give them some new motivations and inspirations, which can effect their whole lifes. The volunteers can reach these aims in the most different ways, with language clubs, creative workshops , playful contests or in any kind of way according to the volunteers own imaginations and ideas.

In Blue Elephant Kindergarten the aim is developing the complex personality, which is key in this age to be able to become openminded, responsible, tolerant adults. Including EVS volunteers to this work, gives possiblity to get experience about other cultures and to accept the differencies. The children learn it by a spontaneous way, in a non-formal educational process. The volunteers bring new colour and intercultural sight to the life of the association.
