My name is Reelika Paju. I am 25 years old and I am from Estonia. I would like to take part of voluntary service in Russia name of project Nizhny Novgorod Voluntary Service (2011-PL-93). I am really interested in your project because of the variety of work. I think I fit good into your concept of supporting the youth, developing new ideas and being creative with the children.

One reason why I want to participate of voluntary service is based on personal grounds. I want to discover something new about myself and how do I cope with new enviroment.

I work as youth worker in Tallinn Youth Work Centre. I have worked with young people almost two years in the youth centre. I am graduate of youth work. During my studies I had many trainings for example in youth camp, youth centre, school, local self-goverment.

My main duties in youth centre are giving opportunities to young people to spend their free time and organising activities to them. My main goal has been to provide the knowledges about risk behavior for example smoking, drinking, drugs and sexual behavior. Visitors in youth centre are aged between 7 to 26. Their backgrounds are very different. Some of them are from very proper families and some of them are from very difficult situation of families. Also monthly I write activity plans, reports, articles and last year I wrote and organised project about risk behavior.

As volunteer I would like to get some challenge as project Centre Initiative you offer. I will be ready to support and give my best to the organisation.

I am cheerful and energetic person. I like to meet with people from different countries. In our youth centre we have a volunteer from Spain and I am very glad that I can host him in Estonia. I am very tolerant and flexible. I am dutiable and accurate in my work. I will never forget to be creative if it is possible. I like combine useful knowledges with enjoyable activities. On this way it will be possible to get a valuable experiences.

I am ready to conduct art lessons, movie nights, celebratings, to give lessons about smoking, drinking, drugs and sexual behavior, introduce opportunities about reusing. I have learned a litte bit about circus and folk dance.

I would like to learn how works youth work and all social system in Russia. Also I would like to learn some more Russian language and culture. In Estonia it gives you a lot if you know Russian. Thats why I decided to do my EVS in Russia. I think that cooperation between two parties, the both sides will get some good and fresh ideas. It would mean a lot to me, if you consider me because I appreciate your work and I want to learn with you.
