Ikšķile Free school is looking for European Solidarity Corps volunteers for an approved project “FREE- Focus Resources on Education and Enviornment”. Project takes place in an alternative school “Ikšķile Free school” for 10 months (August 30, 2019 – June 30, 2020) and we will host 3 volunteers – two teacher’s assistants and assistant in permaculture garden.
Ikšķile Free school is a school established and managed by parents. Values of the school are freedom, nature, community and Latvian traditions.
Teachers’ assistants in the school will assist teachers in pre-school and teaching classes (sports, music, language classes) and extraculrriculum activities (woodworks) for school children, assist children in developing household and self-care skills. Volunteers will help to introduce more sustainable practises in school and develop their own activities, for example, play traditional games of their country, teach some songs or phrase in their language, organise events and carry out initiatives.
Assistant in the permaculture garden will assist in developing seed library, organize educational activities on biological diversity and principles of permaculture, plan and develop permaculture garden in the school, assist in organic shop hosted by school.
