Building recognition of the ICYE long-term programme and youth mobility projects is the main goal of KERIC – ICYE Slovakia’s campaign. Through a wide range of activities such as public events, regular volunteer meetings, information sessions, language courses, conversation clubs and the language cafe with international volunteers, EUROWEEK and trainings for leaders of summer camps, KERIC’s team is placing emphasis on volunteers’ experiences, intercultural learning and the ICYE network. They are also improving awareness of international volunteering by holding informative presentations at schools and by enhancing their website and social media presence.
On 20th December 2016 each room in KERIC’s office was transformed into a space for international volunteers to present their Christmas traditions with the aim of bringing cultural diversity into the holiday season. This year volunteers from France, Italy, England, Honduras and Russia participated in the activity.
