I´m Teodora and I´m volunteering in Germany

Hey, my name is Teodora, I’m 23 years old and I’m an EVS volunteer in Dortmund, Germany. How did I get here? Hmm, the explanation it’s actually very simple. Due to several youth exchange projects, which I’ve participated  during my university studies, and to the Erasmus semester last year I discovered a lot of the advantages of EU youth mobility programs. I knew how exciting and unique such an experience could be. That is why I decided to combine business with pleasure, gathering practical knowledge in a funny and not so conventional way, and applied for an EVS project in Germany. Luckily I was approved and now I enjoy working at the organization “Auslandsgesellschaft Nordrhein-Westfallen e.V.”

Auslandsgesellschaft NRW is an organization active in the field of intercultural relations. Its main aims are to foster the intercultural dialog and to promote understanding between people in the spirit of humanity and tolerance. On the achievement of these goals focus their efforts the bilateral associations, which are an important structure for maintaining of active relations to people from a wide range of national states and regions in the whole world. They provide a frame for the organizing of various events as lectures, discussions, forums, concerts, festivals, movie- and cooking-nights etc. I’m helping in the Media and PR department. Generally speaking, my work is concentrated in promoting the organized events and subsequently in gathering materials from the media coverage. In particular, that includes tasks as making and disseminating posters and flyers, writing and sending invitations, preparing a monthly report with news and pictures from the organized events as well as assisting before and during the events.

To work in such an atmosphere is really expiring. My colleagues are very open-minded. They don’t slave to prejudices but approach others with tolerance and interest in foreign culture and traditions. They even encourage me now to develop a project that will show Bulgaria in a better and more realistic way than negative reports of German media do. It’s a big challenge, but it’s also a unique opportunity that I want to take. Volunteering as a whole is a great chance. It contributes not only to the improvement of my social skills and of my knowledge about Europe and the world, but also to my whole personal development. That is way I would strongly recommend it to everyone without any hesitation.
