Eastpackers is looking for volunteers who want to go deep into the Middle-East, Palestina. When you are sportive and looking for a real adventure, this is your chance!
Palestine Sport 4 life (PS4L) responds to developmental needs in the marginalized Palestinian communities through sports and life skills, operating in global context through aligning its developmental activities to the UN-SDGS, by implementing the following programs: Education and Child & Youth Development, Child Protection and Safeguarding, Economic Infrastructure Development and women & youth Empowerment, Health, Gender, Human Rights, Disability, Disaster Response and International Cultural Exchange.
PS4L is known for its values that are carried out in its work: passionate, committed, purposeful, genuine and connected
The main aim of this project is to empower the youth living in Palestine to become the leaders of their communities by teaching them life skills through various sports and activities carried out by our organization.
Children and youth in Palestine live in a permanent conflict area. Living under occupation means that they cannot experience a normal, peaceful childhood. Our organization is trying to tackle this by using sports as tool to develop their life skills and build a vibrant society which in turn will decrease violence and create leaders of the civil society. We help to create a safe and healthy environment in which the children and youth feel good and confident. In our activities we target marginalized and conflict areas, using sports programs to empower local youth and women to become active leaders in their communities.
two volunteers can start in any time of the year up to 12 month.
The volunteer will work 35 hours a week maximum, five days of the week and has 2 days off each week. The volunteer will have 2 days extra holidays per month. Holidays will be taken in agreement with the host organization.
