Our volunteer Romina from Spain had a dynamic first month of her volunteering.
We checked what her experience was with the help of an iceberg. The upper part, which is on the surface, represents all the positive experiences and good sides of volunteering that she has experienced through her stay so far. The part of the iceberg that is below the surface of the sea represents all the internal struggles she has had in the last month, all the fears and negative experiences.
This was very useful for Romina, and it could be for you too, so give it a try!
*The European Solidarity Corps (ESS) is a program of the European Union to strengthen solidarity in various areas: from helping disadvantaged people and providing humanitarian aid to engagement for health and the environment in the EU and beyond. The program offers young people the opportunity to respond to the needs of the community, make a concrete contribution to society, and in the process gain invaluable experience and develop new skills. The program is also intended for organizations active in the field of solidarity that want to involve young people in their activities.
