Campaign “Camp Away!” is focusing on to students from high schools and informs them about the opportunities of going to the workcamp abroad.
What will the participation in the voluntary project abroad bring to the students, where they will work for free during the holidays, abroad, in humble conditions, and with people they’ve never seen before and who do not even speak Czech?
“We believe that’s a lot! We think that going to workcamps abroad is a meaningful activity, and therefore we organize interactive presentations at Prague’s schools and at others as well. In presentations, based on our own experience, we show that participation on one two week volunteer project (workcamps) abroad, thanks to INEX-SDA mediation, can be one of the most beneficial, the most fun and interesting ways to spend part of the summer. At the same time we promote the idea of volunteering as an activity for which the person does not get paid money, but a thousand other ways that are often extremely valuable. " answer the question from the title of our article volunteers from CampAway.
Their activity of presentation of volunteer experience at schools is still ongoing, and if you are interested and would like to introduce the international volunteering to students of your school, you can contact the group CampAway!
