Poetas do Futuro is an educational non-profit cooperative, funded in June 2010. Its activities occur inside of the Conde de Oeiras School.
The aims of Poetas do Futuro are:
- facilitate the access of students to after class activities, while ensuring monitoring their school work along the school terms;
- encourage socialization, conducting group, sports, cooperation and exchanges activities, seeking an healthy and civic growth, out of the school terms.
Poetas do Futuro provides support to students from 5th to 9th grade of two public schools.
It also promotes international exchanges and cooperation with other social solidarity entities.
The role of the EVS volunteers will be mainly to help the team to create a healthy environment, and open the horizons of the community, especially children and young people.
Therefore, the volunteers have to give a lot of care and transmit a feeling of confidence in their relation with the community. This can be achieved by creating a good relationship and earning their trust.
The volunteers will be integrated in the after-school activities facility, developing the following activities:
*Organization and planning of activities, games, study visits, workshops.
*Implementation of activities with children and young people: games, school support, promotion of cultures, habits, customs and traditions.
(This organisation has additional mentoring or other support suitable for young people with social obstacles, educational difficulties, cultural differences or similar.)
