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?

Sprout is dedicated to helping people with developmental disabilities grow through challenging, creative and fun experiences that enhance socialization, self-confidence and inclusion. Since its founding in 1979, Sprout has provided a year-round travel program of vacations as well as a year-round program of day and evening cultural, social and art-related activities in New York City for people with developmental disabilities. Since 1995, Sprout has run an annual weekend-long music and arts festival for an average of 225 people with developmental disabilities complete with live bands, video screenings, interactive art projects, carnival games, and other entertainment. In 1994 we created our Make-A-Movie Program which uses people with developmental disabilities in all the major acting roles. In 2003 we founded the annual Sprout Film Festival to showcase film and video related to the field of developmental disabilities, made in the United States and abroad.

Treffpunkt

You are welcome to arrive earlier than your scheduled workcamp date to enjoy New York City, and/or to leave at a later date to have time for tourist activities or personal interests. If you would like to come earlier or leave later, we can make hostel reservations for you at a discounted rate, but you will need to pay for these nights yourself (about $60/night through PayPal, check or cash). Please notify us in advance. You must send your arrival and departure details to vfp@vfp.org and cody@gosprout.org

Arbeit

We are looking for one female OR male Dutch-speaking volunteer. You will be a native speaker (or equivalent level) of Dutch language. Ideally, you will be about to start, in the course of, or have completed, a University degree. You will be a fluent and grammatically-correct writer in your mother tongue. You will have good spoken and written English, and be interested in finding out about places like Auchindrain Township and the way of life of its people. You will be physically fit: although you will not be expected to undertake significant manual work: Auchindrain is not a suitable environment for those with mobility difficulties or impaired eyesight. Volunteers find the experience of volunteering in the Auchindrain township immensely rewarding, but the environment can be challenging: emotional and mental strength are needed. Your task will be to familiarise yourself with the Auchindrain township and its story, and then to retell this by translating the museum’s interpretive information from English into Dutch language. You will also have the chance to get involved in other aspects of museum life to provide a break from the translation work. Normally, you will be working indoors and will be expected to work 5 days a week from 8.30am to 5pm, with a 30 minute lunch break. Two weeks of the placement are expected to be spent on secondment to the museum on the island of Islay, where the work and learning opportunities, and accommodation arrangements, will be comparable, but the environment very different.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay in a large residential caravan located within the museum. You will be sharing the caravan with up to 4 other young people from Universities in the UK or mainland Europe who will be conducting similar volunteering placements such as yours. The accommodation, provided free of charge to you, is simple, but warm, dry and clean with kitchen, shower and toilet, and two twins and one single bedroom. Along with the rest of the young people, you will be expected to live together in a cohesive way with English as the common language. You will be sharing cooking, cleaning and other domestic duties. You will be provided £58 weekly allowance to cover food and leisure time activities.

Lage und Freizeit

The museum is set in a spectacular mountain landscape, with plenty of opportunities for walking and exploring. It is located six miles south of Inveraray, in Argyll. The City of Glasgow is a practical day-trip by bus on a day off. The museum can also recommend you other places in Scotland to visit.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Auchindrain Trust, or in Gaelic Achadh an Droighinn, is a unique 9.5 hectare historic open air museum in rural west of Scotland, Argyll. It is recognised as being the most complete surviving example of a Highland farm township, a type of settlement representative of much of Scottish rural history. The site is generally acknowledged as being national significant. The museum preserves the buildings of an ancient small farming community that evolved over centuries and remained active until the 1960s: these are surrounded by farmland. Open to visitors seven days a week during the summer, the museum attracts people from both the UK and across mainland Europe. The museum has a considerable experience of hosting short-term and mid-term international and UK volunteers and interns from renown universities, including Oxford.

Organized together with the ‘Organization of Green and Water’ (OGW) since 2011. It was founded in 1992. This organization was established to advocate for the importance of the prairie and forest in our ecosystem. They work around Iwami Ginzan, a silver mine, which was registered as a World Heritage site in 2007. The organization wants to care for the forests and prairies. It is important to continue to care for our forests after we have disrupted the ecosystem. Extension of bamboo forests is a serious problem in Japan.
