Arbeit

Our teams patrol the beach at night in search of nesting female turtles and their tracks. When we encounter a turtle we count eggs as they are being laid, measure the carapace (shell) and undertake a health assessment. Turtles are tagged with a unique identification number by the patrol leader and we triangulate the nests so the morning team can check them every day. Teams stay with the turtles to ensure they return to sea and are safe from poachers. There is no better feeling than watching a turtle go back to sea knowing that it is alive because of you! Patrols last for a minimum of six hours and involve walking on a beach at night in all weather conditions. Volunteers need to be physically fit as patrols can walk for up to 15 miles. Morning census begins at 5.30am and checks on nests and disguises tracks. Protective mesh are buried over the nests in an effort to reduce domestic dog predation. One of the responsibilities of the volunteers will be to help make and bury these mesh.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The station is basic with running water (cold) and electricity (most of the time). Volunteers will sleep on bunk-beds in single sex dormitories. On base we have two large dorms, showers (cold), flush toilets, a library, large kitchen and a project room. Breakfast is self-service and lunch and dinner are provided in our kitchen by cooks from Monday – Saturday and on Sundays we cook as a group. Volunteers take it in turns to bake bread and cookies which are available along with fresh fruit throughout the day. We can cater easily for vegetarians.

Lage und Freizeit

The project is located at a biological research station on the canals of the Tortuguero Conservation Area in northeast Costa Rica. The station is based in lowland tropical rainforest and is only accessible by boat. It is home to biologists, researchers and conservation-minded volunteers and interns. Wake up to the sound of howler monkeys in the morning, avoid stepping on strawberry poison dart frogs around base and bird watch to your heart’s content from our boat bock. This is a wildlife lover’s paradise. We have one day off a week and in your spare time you can chill in a hammock on the boat dock or take a kayak up the canal in search of black river turtles, iguanas and if you are really lucky otters. We have a very active community programme including a weekly conservation club for the children of the local community and volunteers are encouraged to get involved.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Marine Turtle Monitoring and Tagging Programme is entering its tenth year. Each year we invite volunteers and interns from around the world to live and work with us to protect three species of Marine Turtle. We protect the living dinosaur that is the Leatherback, the charismatic Green and the critically endangered Hawksbill. We collect data on nesting females, prevent poaching by being a presence on the beach and raise awareness about marine turtle conservation. We need dedicated volunteers to help us patrol the beach to protect the turtles and their nests. Without the commitment of our volunteers there would be no turtles nesting on our beach!

Weitere Infos

DATES: THIS IS AN ONGOING PROJECT, SO PLEASE CONTACT CONCORDIA BEFORE APPLYING TO CHECK AVAILABILITY AND AGREE DATES. We accept volunteers all year round for a MINIMUM OF TEN DAYS. Leatherback season runs from 01 March to 31 May. Green and Hawksbill season runs from 01 June to31 October. Greens and Hawskbills may nest during leatherback season and leatherbacks may also nest in June. Additional fee 275 USD per week

Anforderungen

This is a scientific research station and volunteers are expected to participate fully in the collection of data. Research permits are required to work on our beach and we will arrange these for volunteers. This project is slightly different to an international volunteer project in that volunteers and interns are recruited independently and therefore will be arriving and leaving throughout the season; however we host volunteers from all over the world and promote an ethos of cultural awareness and respect.

Arbeit

Volunteers who take part in the workcamp will assist Sprout Programs in a variety of ways. The main duty is working as a Trip Leader providing supervision, support and companionship to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities on overnight vacations. The vacations are 3 to 8 days long and take you to various popular tourist destinations throughout the United States. You are required to participate in our training class during the first few days of your workcamp. Leaders work with different co-leaders for each trip. The leader teams consist of 3 volunteers with groups of 8-11 participants. Within the co-leading team there will be at least one leader who has experience working with Sprout. This leader is known as the Primary leader. The co-leading team will have access to the Leadership staff 24 hours a day to answer any questions during the trip. Responsibilities include but are not limited to ensuring safety for the participants at all times, planning and participating in activities, overseeing the group budget, helping with hygiene needs (e.g. separating dirty and clean clothes, applying deodorant, assisting with showers, etc), driving/navigating, carrying luggage, providing general emotional and physical support, and ensuring everybody has a fun time. While on trips, leaders are responsible for their group 24-hours a day and therefore cannot leave the group for any reason or consume alcohol/narcotics (Please refer to Leadership Guidelines, below). Although the work is not physically strenuous, it can be exhausting as you are likely to work long days, have little privacy and are always responsible for your group. That said, you will probably find it to be one of the most fun and rewarding experiences you will ever have.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

While on trips, leaders will stay in hotels and eat all meals in restaurants as a group. All 3 leaders (male and female) will share one room at the hotel. Between trips, when the volunteers are in New York City, they will stay at the American Youth Hostel. Volunteers will be responsible for their own meals, transportation and activities when not on a trip. The hostel offers shared accommodations (dormitory style) with shared shower, cooking and laundry facilities. The hostel does not allow sleeping bags or bed sheets since they provide sheets and blankets. Sprout will pay for your accommodation on trips and in New York City for the entire duration of your workcamp based on the agreed dates.

Lage und Freizeit

Between trips, leaders will receive some free time to explore New York City, which is easily accessible via public transportation. Local leaders will be able to help volunteers find the best places to relax and enjoy their time. Volunteers can visit the many tourist attractions such as the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square or the many Broadway shows, sporting events, museums or dance performances available in New York City.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Purpose: Your workcamp will be filled with exciting trips, wonderful people, and many challenges. Leading Sprout trips is hard work, but very rewarding. We hope you will enjoy leading our trips for people with special needs and that you will leave the Sprout workcamp with a strong sense of fulfillment. We are looking forward to working with you!

Arbeit

A library is a collection of sources of information and similar resources, made accessible to a specific community/school for reference or borrowing. It provides physical or digital access to material, and may be a physical building or room, or a virtual space, or both. Learners are at the centre of learning in the library. In Nepal, there are not enough training organized for teachers and children on how to use a library. So through this camp, volunteers will organize teaching and learning activated through the use of library resources. It’s a very fun and creative way of learning. Workcamps will be organized with the cooperation of local community schools under VIN’s children’s development program and working together with local teachers/children/ villagers. The schools where we are conducting camps lack facilities of a library and other infrastructure. Some schools have some collections, but they are not managed and used well. The rooms are not well painted and books are not arranged in a proper order. Children are not taught the skills of using a library and its importance. Volunteers will not only manage the library, but will also organize activities with children at school and conduct some classes on how a library is managed and used. The library camp will help children to develop reading and writing skills. Volunteers with abilities on sports, arts & crafts, music, dance, drama, in & outdoor group games are welcome. Through this project we want to give every student an opportunity to learn, to enjoy reading, and to create new knowledge and understanding by the use of a library. Objectives: • To work for a children development project and exchange the experience • Help the school manage its library and teach children to use it in a regular basis. Work: • Clean and maintain the library. • Arrangement of resources in the library and record them in proper order. • Paint and decorate the library room. • Conduct the session with children and teachers for the proper use of library. • Organize different reading and/or writing activities with children in relation to the use of the library.

International Workcampers will implement several activities each day on a rotating basis.

The Institute for Global Education, Exchange and Internship (IGEEI) formerly known as Youth for Sustainable Development Assembly (YSDA) is committed to providing a platform and opportunities for students, young professionals, and individuals in developing their skills in becoming globally competitive through formal and non-formal mechanisms. IGEEI vision is making "Global Education Accessible for All" thus ensuring equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their economic, social, cultural and political background. The Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Education for Children has been designed to provide children in various daycare centers in Tanay, Rizal Province the opportunity to learn basic information about sanitation and hygiene. IGEEI is working with 19-daycare centers in Tanay, Rizal province and developed a WASH Education Manual that could be completed within 10 days or shorter. The daycare centers are located in a rural area not easily accessible and some facilities for children are limited. IGEEI is addressing these gaps steps by step but with the help of international workcamps it contributes to changing the attitudes and mindsets of students, teachers, and parents on the importance of sanitation and hygiene.

Treffpunkt

The airport of entry is Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila. One of the IGEEI local volunteer will meet the participants in the airport once the travel details have been provided. Due to the location of the project, we strongly suggest that we meet the volunteers in the airport and travel together going to the project site. Public transportation is a challenge in the Philippines.

This work is physically demanding but on fresh air. As the meadows can be very wet, bring waterproof working shoes (or rubber boots), rain-gear and gloves. You will also work directly in the campsite on maintenance tasks which can include repairing fences, preparing garden beds for winter, working in the nearby forest and other manual work. At the end of the workcamp you will help to dismantle the campsite and to transport all the material to Prague where it will be stored during winter. Study part: Evening discussions about environmental and intercultural topics, learning to recognize stars, watching wild animals. A visit to nature reservations in the neighbourhood can be planned. As you are living in close contact with the nature you will improve your camping skills as well.

September 24 Primary and Secondary School is located Trapaing Kok village, Po Angkrong commune, Boset District, Kompong Speu Province. There are about 2,000 students enrolling the schools who come from the surrounding communities. Basically, the classroom condition is quite shabby and considering the safety of the students and teachers are put in the caring list; therefore, the school need handful assistance in making physical development. At the same time, due to the lack of English knowledge, there is no English class running in the school curriculum which international volunteers are requested. From our experience of 2 year’s cooperation, we believe that organizing international workcamp in September 24 is an ideal program for the students and the whole community. Walk with us to make September 24 School into a center where its 2,000 students experience inter-national learning, inter-cultural living, and inter-professional exchange with the teachers. Join us to develop your quality of lives through your social engagement!
