The European Voluntary Service “Language and Tradition” will focus on inclusion of minority children by education. The service takes place in Vienna, the multilingual and multicultural capital of Austria at the hosting organisation “Ungarischer Schulverein”. The main beneficiaries of the EVS project are minority children, some of them having fewer opportunities. The project aims to provide equal opportunities for all children, including the beneficiaries of our organisation: children belonging to minority and facing socio-economic obstacles.

The activities of the project include:
– to support the hosting organisation with the implementation of educational and leisure activities for children from minority groups
– to co-organise cultural excursions

The actual activities will vary from day to day and be adapted in function of the interests and talents of the selected volunteer. It could include arts&crafts activities, music activities, playing, workshops, excursions and visits, outdoor and ecological activities, foreign linguistic activities, sports, etc.
