"YMCA Serbia" is an organization dedicated to work with children and young people (between 8 and 30 years old). Our goal is to support personal development of children and young people by organizing activities for their leisure time, enabling them to live better and more fulfilling lives. This will be the second time we organise workcamps.
This workcamp will be a tempting option for the volunteers and the local young people to, apart from manual work, engage themselves in a creative sense. We will continue the work started last year and includes collection of garbage, cleaning and arrangement of green spaces (parks, ponds, gardens), painting, repairing and making furniture from the used material (wooden pallets) as well as renovation work of the Youth Centre.
The volunteers will be accommodated in the premises of the Tourist Organization of Backi Petrovac, within a 10-min walk from the youth centre where most of the work and activities will take place. Sleeping in real beds (sheets and pillows provided). The kitchen, toilets and showers are provided at the venue. The volunteers will prepare their own meals from food that will be provided by the organizer, so to share their favourite meals with their new friends and learn about cuisines of other countries.
Backi Petrovac is a small town in Vojvodina, situated 25km from Novi Sad. It is a typical agriculture town in Vojvodina, more than 260 years old, known for its Slovak traditions. An excursion to Novi Sad is going to be organized. Various lectures and workshops on topics of local culture and history, as well as environmental protection are planned.
