3 volunteers will be hosted for 6 months in Cyprus, beginning on 01.06.2019 – 01.12.2019
The volunteers will be working with us in PlanBe and we will be working with each local community for a period of time in order to experience the informal learning of the traditional professions of each village and to help with the preparation of the different agricultural events/festivals in the mountain villages of Cyprus, at Troodos Geopark. The volunteers will interact both with the youngsters of the rural areas who live in the local community but also with the elder people of the community who will be invited to demonstrate traditional professions and recipes related to local products produced in the different villages.

Training during the project
The volunteers will help in supporting and in the organisation of the different festivals regarding traditional professions and homemade products in the different villages in Troodos Geopark like in the Lavender festival in Platres, in the Grape Feast in Koilani and Arsos villages etc. Additionally, the volunteers will create and implement activities from scratch as for example arts and crafts, traditional ways of making different homemade products and workshops for event planning and management designed especially for NEET youth and youngsters with fewer opportunities
Volunteers with fewer opportunities and more specifically young people with economic and geographical obstacles, youth coming from NEET background will be strongly encouraged to participate in PlanBe project. Volunteers need to have strong interest on agriculture, elder people, environment and creativity. Our future volunteers are expected to be willing and ready for new challenges and experiences, creative, with no fears for taking responsibilities and willing to work in a team.
