Volunteers will support and manage International Volunteer Projects (IVPs) in rural Carmarthenshire over the summer season.
Each IVP will involve around 9 volunteers who will work together on a project over a 2 week period. The MTV (Medium Term Volunteer) group will lead these projects.
Each project will comprise of two parts. The first is environmental work which aims to maintain and improve access to the countryside.
Work could include footpath maintenance, constructing stiles and fences, general maintenance work or more specific project work e.g. building an eco-garden for a local school. This work will be done be tween 9-5, Monday to Friday. The second part involves the MTV team working together to deliver a programme of global education work shops and community events which will take place once a week. The team will be responsible for motivating the international volunteers and participating alongside them, driving the group between work site and accommodation, keeping a record of the budget, organising domestic life etc.
On arrival, the MTVs will take part in a training programme which will cover leadership and practical environmental skills, ideas for the global education work, health & safety and driving.
Volunteers will be provided with accommodation in the community centre in the small village of Glanaman in North West Wales.
MTVs will have separate rooms from the volunteers but will share with other MTVs
