We are now recruiting for the 2017 Expedition!!
Our expeditions give volunteers the opportunity to enrich the lives of disadvantaged young people in the Balkans and Turkey. Over the past 10 years we have worked with our long term partners in Kosovo, Bosnia, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, Greece and Turkey. These include foster homes, youth clubs, schools and care centres.
Volunteers spend two weeks in each country. Each partner has different objectives so the expedition team’s work varies considerably in each location.
As well as working with partners and service users the expedition members will also work with in-country volunteers. These volunteers are trained so that they can continue to deliver sport and play sessions between expeditions.
How does it work?
- 9 volunteers along with a team leader run developmental sport and play sessions with our partner organisations in Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, Bosnia, Greece and Turkey.
- They work as a team to plan and deliver exciting high quality activity sessions ranging from traditional sports to specially designed activities and quieter drama and circle games.
- The expedition lasts for 10 weeks and the volunteers travel together in a hired mini bus.
- A long term impact and legacy is ensured by training local volunteers
