Description de la mission :

Our organisation: "Offene Jugend- und Kulturarbeit Bregenz" / open youth and cultural work Bregenz provides a professional field of applied youth work and is indispensable for local youth policy in our region.
Our work functions as a mouthpiece for the needs of young people and a place of socialization for young people. That is why we create social and cultural spaces in which young people can develop their identity, personality and relationships.
The association “Open Youth and Cultural Work Bregenz” (OJKA Bregenz) organizes and operates demand-oriented youth work in the entire social landscape of Bregenz. The offers are aimed at all young people between the ages of eleven and 25, regardless of their biological or social gender, class, ideology, religious affiliation, nationality, language or state of health!
The participation of the young people forms the basis for all offers, so that the self-created free spaces become places of self-awareness and self-efficacy. The participants have the opportunity to get involved as part of our stationary and mobile presence services, as well as in our projects that are developed and carried out participatively with our clients, as well as to work in our cultural sector (from folklore and diversity parties to towards the punk concert).
Anyone interested can participate! We are barrier-free in access as well as in mind and heart.

Tâches du volontaire :

The volunteer will work five days a week, 34 hours a week including German course. S*he will have two days holidays per month.
The participants have the opportunity to participate in our stationary and mobile presence services (street work), as well as in our different projects that are developed and carried out in a participatory manner with the youngsters; these are projects around the areas of democracy policies, anti-racism, gender sensitive youth work, health and wellbeing, food + cooking, urban gardening, sports (for example “fair boxing”), outdoor sports and activities, street work, art projects, etc.
Furthermore, the volunteers can support us in our culture work: from folklore and diversity parties to punk and rock concerts, interactive music projects, art, street art – graffiti, etc.
In our organisations the volunteer will be seen as a temporary team member who supports us in our work.
Examples of tasks are:
• Working in the youth café: working behind the bar
• playing games with the youngsters, communicating with them, giving peer-advice
• Mobile Jugendarbeit / Street work: meeting young people in the streets or at local sites, talking to them and informing them about our workshops and activities
• Assisting and co-organising different activities, workshops and projects, as mentioned above
Doing a voluntary project with our organisation, the volunteer will learn a lot about youth work and will get a practical insight into the various fields of youth work and social work.

Profil recherché :

Our volunteers should like to work with young people and should be interested in different youth cultures, music, sports, night-life and youth centre work. They should be interested in caring for young people and be prepared to take the initiative to get in contact with them. They should be flexible and be willing to take part in different kinds of projects.
Since our opening hours are mainly in the afternoons, evenings and on weekends they should be prepared to work late hours and work on weekends as well. The volunteer will have two consecutive days off during the week.
