Organisation is located in Rusatvi City. GYE works mainly with young people aged 12 – 25 but also with adults.

The groups of campers are coming to one or two weeks camps and we are helping them with food and service supply.

During the service the volunteer will learn about different cultures, customs and countries (including Georgia), transferable life skills, such as communication and how to live in an international environment. S/he will develop organizational and leadership skills, particularly in relation to delivering outdoor activities and managerial skills.

Working conditions
In the office wireless internet will be provided to the volunteers. Also we have computers in our office and volunteers will be provided with their own work places and all necessary tools for working –starting with stationery, a computer, a desk, etc. Of course, for more comfortable use, we can advise to bring your own laptop. Your free time and days off depends on agreement and the season. We are asking the volunteers to take longer period of holiday especially duringwinter season, because our activities are limited because of snow and cold, but still, it is a matter of our agreement. In general, less rest and greater flexibility is expected from the volunteers during spring and summer and larger opportunities for the holidays and more rest are possible during the winter months. However, we always try to balance leisure time and activities by the rules of Erasmus+ program.

Living conditions of EVS volunteers
Volunteers will share with the other EVS volunteers a flat situated in a housing estate -about 5 minutes walking distance from the town center, 20 minute -from office. Each volunteer will have his/her own private bedroom. EVS volunteers will be given money to buy their own food. There is a kitcheninthe volunteers’ flat where they can prepare meals. Shops and restaurants are close-by (a 2-5-minute walk). Also, we will organize bicycles for volunteers..

Local community, life of young people in it.
No matter that Rustavi is the third biggest city of Georgia and not far from the capital city Tbilisi, local community is cozy and life runs calm. People are very hospitable and open-minded. In the city there are a lot of restaurants, cafeterias, theaters and beautiful, wild parks. But unfortunately a lot of youth-related problems exist here. There is a lack of youth educational and entertainment centers in Rustavi, which could make it possible for local youngsters to have an additional source for gaining informal and non-formal education. Only a very limited number of young people are socially active due to their involvement in the projects and programs initiated by the local nongovernmental youth organizations. But youngsters want to be creative and they are searching for self-realization opportunities.

Volunteers profile:
We do not have special requirements. We just want to cooperate with young people in age between 18-30 years old, with communicative English language skills who are highly motivated to work hand in had with us during those 9 months. The russian language knowladge at the basic level will be advantage but it is not obligatory
