The ELIX team is delighted to announce the return of the successful "Summer in the City" Volunteering Teams in July 2024! After eight consecutive years of implementation, ELIX, with the support of the Municipality of Acharnes and the 18th Primary School of Acharnes, is back to offer another year of a unique experience to 60 children. This volunteer program is funded by the European Solidarity Corps and will take place at the 18th Primary School of Acharnes.

The voluntary team project aims to support families facing financial difficulties by providing creative activities through experiential processes and workshops, enhancing the skills and talents of the children. With the help of educators and two groups of volunteers from various countries, the children will have the opportunity to develop their imagination and teamwork by participating in a variety of activities.
ELIX is looking for 24 volunteers aged 18 to 30 years old and 2 leaders aged 18+ to support the "Summer in the City" ESC Volunteering Teams, which will take place in East Athens from June 29, 2024, to July 13, 2024.

What kind of volunteering ?

The ESC Volunteering Teams involves working with children (ages 6 to 12) during their summer holidays. You will support the educational activities defined by the educators (sports activities, workshops, artistic events, theatrical plays, and many more) or even implement your own activity ideas.

What the program offers volunteers?

  • Covered expenses: Volunteers will receive a daily allowance to cover their food and other expenses (pocket money – food money) and will be insured (Henner) during these two weeks. ELIX will organise the transportation by bus for the group, starting at a central point in Athens (near a Metro station) to the point of implementation of the project and return.
  • Support and guidance: Trained leaders will provide 24-hour support to the volunteers, while qualified educators will contribute to the volunteers' training for the program's implementation.
  • Participation certificate: Volunteers will receive a participation certificate (Youth Pass) upon completion of the program, detailing all acquired skills.
  • Skill development: Volunteers will gain valuable experience and skills in children's creative activities, which can enhance their resumes and help with their professional development.
  • Cultural exchange: Through collaboration with volunteers from different countries, participants will have the opportunity to learn about different cultures and make friendships with people from all over the world.
  • Personal development: By participating in the program, volunteers will experience something that will help them develop their confidence, teamwork, and leadership skills.
