1.Nizhny Novgorod region non-governmental organization of assistance to children and youth «Veras»

 

 

About  the organization:

The primary objective of the organization is creation to children and young people with disabilities equal opportunities of participation in the life of society, their social adaptation and integration into society.

In February 2004 for the first time in the city of Nizhny Novgorod  on the basis of the municipal establishment of help to children and family “Zhuravushka” has opened Service of social adaptation of children and youth with disabilities “Steps”. 14 children and young people from 5 till 20 years, having autism, Down syndrome, learning and other combined limitations, daily visit day-stay groups of the Service “Steps”, where they are engaged in creativity, transactions, visit musical occupations, exercise room, bowling. The majority of these children and young people have never attended any educational establishment before, as they were recognized to be “unteachable”; many have never been somewhere outside their flat and the yard, communicating only with close relatives.

Specially worked out comprehensive program of rehabilitation and social adaptation  “Steps” enables these children and young people to receive adaptive training, to be integrated step-by-step into society, to develop skills of self-service. This program is based on the attitude to the person with disabilities as to the individual, who, except for elementary needs, has also rights to education, self-expression, communication with other people and development of the personal potential.

Our implements following activities:

• affiliation of parents for protection of rights of children with features in development;

• social and psychological rehabilitation of children and youth with disabilities, as well as their parents;

• creation of centers of social adaptation for children and young invalids,

• organization of support employment, vocational training of the young people with disabilities;

• organization of seminars for specialists, parents, teenagers and young people;

• holding conferences on exchange of the experience;

• attraction of the societies’ attention to problems of people with disabilities, development and promotion of the community based rehabilitation programs.

 

The primary activities of the volunteers are:

Our organization can offer a wide range of activities for EVS volunteers. First of all, they can help in the day-stay centre where children and youngsters with different disabilities stay during the day. The tasks for the volunteer are: playing with children, helping them in socially-domestic adapting, making small workshops on handicrafts. Our pedagogues are ready to teach volunteer working with our children. We have a thoroughly prepared program of activities for developing children’s intellectual and speaking abilities, and volunteer will help in carrying out different lessons and give personal assistance to children. If the volunteer can play any musical instrument, he could arrange musical hours for children.

During summer holidays, our children go to the summer camp “Young Nizhegorodets” (about 60 km from the city). There’s a possibility that the volunteer will stay there with children, carrying out the same activities, but mostly outside.

Nowadays we’re also launching a pilot project, within the program of which people from 18 years suffering from autism are taught to live independently and integrate into the community. Help of the volunteers might also be needed there. Volunteer together with the pedagogue would accompany our clients, helping them with cooking, walking with them, going with them to the shop etc.

But the work of our organization is not just everyday working with children, we’re also always ready to develop and go further. Thus, volunteer will have the opportunity to take part in our conferences, help with fundraising and take part in numerous events we’re organizing (sport, cultural, educational, etc.).

We involve volunteers into our day-to day activities and normally they're working in one group during their whole project - depending on the age of children. First we discuss with them what age group they think is most suitable for them, and if they don't feel like it's ok for them, they go to the other group where it's most comfortable for them.

 

Selection’s process:

Volunteers will be selected on the following criteria:

• readiness and motivation to work with our target group – disabled people (it would be favourable if volunteer was planning to work in this field in the future or worked before). Volunteer should fully realize all possible difficulties he may face in the beginning of the project

• readiness to work hard, because it’s not so easy to work in conditions different from the ones he had in his own country

• readiness to learn Russian and to communicate in Russian.

 

Volunteers needed: 2.
