Волонтирај во Европа @ YMCA Bitola
Jan 1 – Dec 31 all-day

ИМКА Битола ти нуди можност за волонтирање и во Европа!

Европскиот Солидарен Корпус (поранешниот Европски Волонтерски Сервис) е програма на Европска Унија која им овозможува на млади помеѓу 17-30 години да волонтираат во странство од 2-12 месеци.

Европската Унија ги покрива сите трошоци со цел да промовира вредности како што се: активно граѓанство, толеранција, взаемно разбирање,  солидарност.

Оваа програма еднаш во животот нуди искуство каде волонтерите  имаат можност да запознаат други култури, да станат независни, да стекнат работни вештини, да се обучат за тимска работа, да патуваат и научат јазик како и да добијат Youthpass сертификат кој е признаен во странство и со тоа да ги зголемат шансите за вработување.

Доколку се волонтира на долгорочен проект (помеѓу 2 и 12 месеци), волонтерот нема повеќе можност за повторување на искуството преку оваа програма. Доколку првото волонтирање е краткорочно до 2 месеци, тогаш волонтерот би можел да аплицира уште еднаш за искористување на преостанатите 10 месеци.

Овој тип на волонтирање не е платена работа, јазичен курс, стажирање или туризам и покрај тоа што содржи елементи од сето ова.

Проектите за кои може да аплицирате имаат најразлични теми (над 50) и ваше е да одберете дали сакате да работите со деца или во театар или можеби со лица со хендикеп, социјална работа, ICT- нови тенологии, да предавате јазик, да научите како да водите организација, работа со кампови итн.

Низ следниве дата-бази може да се пребаруваат овие теми:
https://europa.eu/youth/volunteering/project_en (пребарувате согласно Вашите временски планови, тема и земја каде би сакале да волонтирате),
https://youthforeurope.eu/ (пребарувате под „Младински размени“, „Европски Солидарен Корпус“ или „Тренинзи“)

Отворените повици за волонтирање ги објавуваме на фејсјбук. Ако сакате повиците да ги добивате на е-маил запишете се на нашата ЕВС меилинг листа, пишете ни директно и ќе Ви одговориме. Доколку имате прашања може да не контактирајте и на меил: evs@ymcabitola.org.mk.

Отворени часови / Open hours @ YMCA Bitola
Jan 1 – Dec 31 all-day

Capture

Работните часови на канцеларијата се од понеделник до петок од 10.00 до 16.00 часот.

Ако сте заинтересирани или пак имате прашања за учество во нашите активности, да споделите идеи или да добиете информации за нашите тековни активности, тоа можете да го сторите на волонтерските средби кои ги организираме повремено.

Календарот на настани се обновува во текот на месецот.  Бидете во тек со нашите случувања!

ПОВИКОТ Е ЗАТВОРЕН!!!

 

European Volunteer Service (EVS) in YWCA-YMCA Global, part of the YWCA-YMCA of Norway

We are looking for one person from Macedonia on EVS in Norway for 12 months starting from May 2019.

Long-term aims:

  2. to produce changes in unjust policies that are affecting young people;

CLUBS of GLOW & YMLP camper alumni
Sep 1 2019 – Aug 31 2020 all-day

The mission of YMCA and the GLOW & YMLP Youth Development Progrаm is to empower the young people and develop the inherent potential they have by providing them with the skills and knowledge necessary to become active leaders in their communities. This is realized through experiential education that celebrates diversity, builds academic and social competencies.

GLOW & YMLP Clubs are youth-led clubs housed in diverse communities around the country. The clubs provide an opportunity for young men and women to become leaders in their communities. These youth are often GLOW or YMLP Camp alumni who, through GLOW and YMLP Club activities, are able to apply what they have learned at camp about leadership and civic engagement in their communities. Clubs hold two meetings monthly and are responsible for one community service project each school semester.

There are two different ways GLOW and YMLP clubs can be realized, one is through regional clubs and the other one through the satellite clubs. Regional GLOW and YMLP clubs create spaces where club leaders and members follow a specific program with enhanced support from YMCA, while Satellite GLOW and YMLP Clubs are mostly following the program of the closest regional club which is in their proximity, but also allowing their members to be creative and flexible in the implementation of the activities of their satellite club.

The support which GLOW/YMLP Regional Clubs receive from YMCA includes funding, mentoring, and unique opportunities for training and skills development. These clubs have more rigorous national standards which they must complete to fulfill their obligations as a club. The organization of clubs in this way allows YMCA and the club coordinators to be more engaged in the club efforts.

GLOW and YMLP Satellite Clubs are more flexible in their responsibilities, and while they have the opportunity to receive more tangible support from YMCA, they also have the option of creating their own club experience. Satellite clubs are welcomed to participate in meetings and events held by their local Regional Club, but they are expected to take part in the service projects organized by this same local Regional Club. Satellite clubs also have the opportunity of transition into Regional Club in the future years.

WHO DO WE WORK WITH?

  • GLOW & YMLP clubs are operated and staffed by several adults comprising YMCA staff, Peace Corps volunteers, and GLOW and YMLP camper alumni. Clubs are developed and operated by YMCA with partnership from Peace Corps.
  • Clubs are funded in large part by our partners and supporters including: OKTA, Mermeren Kombinat, SASA mine, TAV Airports, AlkaloidKromberg & Schubert, ESM and dozens of individual contributors to our annual crowdfunding campaign.
  • We have also worked together with our friends at the US Embassy since the beginning of the YMLP and GLOW program.

Follow the activities of the clubs all over the country on social media: Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, YouTube.

HISTORY

GLOW and YMLP Clubs began in 2000 and 2016 respectively in order to provide camp alumni with an opportunity to apply the lessons they learned at Camps GLOW and YMLP in their communities. With a strong commitment to equality and diversity GLOW and YMLP clubs focus on curriculum tracks like environmentalism, civic responsibility, personal development, leadership, youth employability and women’s empowerment. Clubs prepare and propel youth to compose their leadership skills so that they may become the leaders in their communities, and in the world. GLOW and YMLP Clubs formally partnered with YMCA Bitola in 2016.

YMCA Corporate Sponsorship Reception 2019 @ Hotel Park & Spa, Restaurant (Four)
Nov 6 @ 18:00 – 20:00
YMCA Corporate Sponsorship Reception 2019 @ Hotel Park & Spa, Restaurant (Four) | Skopje | Skopje | Macedonia (FYROM)

This is the sixth year in a row we organize the Reception for Corporate Partners of the GLOW & YMLP Youth Development Program.

During the event, we share our gratitude to our corporate partners who have been with us sponsoring the youth program, but also investing in the education of young people and future leaders of Macedonia.

Beside our corporate partners, at the event we invite also other companies who value and practice the Corporate Social Responsibility in their operations and contribute to the overall community development. For those who are coming at the event for the first time, we provide opportunity to inform them about two premium leadership camps for young people, the GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) and YMLP (Young Men’s Leadership Project) camps as well as for our camper alumni community service GLOW & YMLP clubs .

In the previous years, the GLOW & YMLP Youth Development Program have relied heavily on U.S. Embassy funding. For this program to become sustainable, the necessary support must come from Macedonia’s companies. The corporate representatives have the opportunity to: 1) demonstrate their corporate social responsibility; 2) build good will for their company and the products and services they provide; and 3) create a legacy in developing the future leaders of Macedonia, by being our corporate sponsor.

At the event the guests also will have opportunity to listen former campers about their experiences at camps this summer and how GLOW and YMLP camps have helped them to shape their personality and to become individuals who are today – active, engaged, and confident Macedonian leaders. These are the Macedonia’s bright and inspiring leaders for the future. Investing in GLOW and YMLP is investing in the future of Macedonia.

The event is hosted by YMCA and our main partner Peace Corps.

Attending the event is possible only by invitation from the YMCA due limited space.
