Vacancy for EVS Volunteer in Austria. Application Deadline 2nd April 2013.

December 10, 2012 | In: ,

The Loackerhuus Lebenshilfe Vorarlberg GmbH, 2012-AT-8, in Götzis, Austria, is looking for one EVS volunteer, from 2nd September 2013 to 1st September 2014.

Project environment: The Lebenshilfe Vorarlberg is an organization founded in 1967. Loackerhuus is a subsidiary institution which was opened in March 2011 in Götzis, near Dornbirn. Our general principle is “people need people” no matter whether you have a disability or not. Our work focuses on the uniqueness of every human being and in the belief that society depends on every individual person and every individual person depends on the society.
Loackerhuus is an institution for people with intellectual disabilities and behavior problems starting at the age of 16 and going on to retirement.
Loackerhuus is intended as an open meeting place with the object of offering individuals in the town and nearby region an opportunity to take part in public life. The Loackerhuus-Café offers the possibility for people with and without disabilities to meet socially. We employ 24 people with intellectual disabilities and behavioral problems.

Tasks: The role of the EVS volunteers will be to work along with our employees and people with intellectual disabilities and behaviour problems, mainly in one of our four working areas (Café, Kitchen, Creative group and Glass workshop). The volunteer will be encouraged and accompanied to support people to tackle a task for themselves, not to do things for them, in order for them to realize their potential and abilities. As a volunteer your work will be guided by our professional employees. Also you will get the free space to create and implement your own ideas. We are welcoming new and creative ideas, which we believe adds new perspectives to our organisation. The activities in which the volunteers could be involved and the activities the volunteers could create in your organisation.
Possible tasks:

– Café: The volunteer has the possibility to learn how to welcome the guests, serve meals and beverages, work at the bar and make preparations for the days work …

– Kitchen: Help with the production of cakes and biscuits, supports and instructs individuals with disabilities with everyday domestic activities …

– Creative group: Support and instruct individuals with disabilities using creative work e. g. painting, papermaché objects, felt objects …

– Glass workshop: Support and instruct individuals with disabilities in the production of glass objects e. g. bowls, decorative objects … as well as in daily living activities.

Selection criteria: The volunteer should be open to work with people with light intellectual disabilities and behaviour problems. They have to be interested in working in the fields like a Café, Kitchen, and in creative groups where they work with glass and other material. If the volunteer has a driving licence it would make things easier but this is not necessary. Due to the nature of the people with disabilities involved in the project, a minimum age of 18 is required.
