Information about activities:

For ACHO is really interesting to motivate local children and youth.
Miloslavov is village of around 2500 inhabitants very close to Bratislava (20 km from centre) But this is too long distance for children and their parents to do there some free time activities (music, dance, education lessons...).
Here is 4-year primary school (children till arround 10 years). Older children and youth are coming back from their school in Bratislava or in another close small town - Dunajska Luzna, and also they have nothing to do - except Facebook , local pubs and this kind of activities.

We want to change this view of "bratislava satellite" and prepare for local community interesting program. Volunteers could help us - with giving lessons of dance, theatre, craft textile, drawing , foreign languages, making photos, movies, prepare trips, sport or other activities, web sites - making ... everything is possible, everything is welcome. From preparing - through promotion - till realization.

We are preparing youth exchanges and training courses so there is possibility to help also in this space - preparing and realization of ACHO events.

Communication - most of youngsters in Slovakia have no problem with English. But children  and parents appreciate help in teaching it (on very basic level). At the very beginning could work "hand and foot" language :-)
later, after Slovak language lessons for volunteers, communication in Slovak can be possible.

Own project activities - Or independently, or together with other volunteers we will welcome initiative of new ideas how to improve the project and stay of volunteers here.
Volunteers can also participate our Tap Dance lessons in Bratislava - and straight after implement new knowledges in children activities.

We prefer candidates which like to “move” - especially which like to dance - or they used any kinds of dance genres in the past like  hobby and they are able to use this knowledge in practice. Also could help all kinds of craftsmanship or artistic skills (painting, music, work with textile, national craft, …. Etc … )
Volunteers could help also during school holidays during summer, with activities for children.

Volunteers according to their skills could help with preparation of the space for the activities, with gardening, with saving photo and video and other data for next generation, with reparation or making of equipment or prepare their own mini events/presentations/projects.
