1 Hola a Este verano, como todos los años, estamos preparando los campos de voluntariado que organiza SCI en España. Estamos buscando voluntarios interesados en coordinar algunos de estos campos. QUÉ SE ESPERA DE UN COORDINADOR? Un coordinador es la persona enviada por parte de SCI al campo de voluntariado y se espera que represente nuestros valores de respeto y trabajo en común para alcanzar el entendimiento y la paz entre los pueblos. Debe mediar entre la contraparte y los voluntarios, fomentando los papeles participativos y activos en el funcionamiento del campo. Debe coordinar a los voluntarios para que las distintas actividades se desarrollen de forma satisfactoria. Debe atender a las necesidades de los voluntarios para el buen funcionamiento del campo y para lograr la consecución de los objetivos así como el disfrute de los participantes. QUÉ OFRECE SCI A LOS COORDINADORES? Una experiencia gratificante de gestión de grupos de voluntarios Si bien la labor de coordinación no está remunerada, el coordinador no incurre en los gastos del campo de voluntariado y los gastos del viaje le serán reembolsados. QUÉ REQUISITOS SE SOLICITAN? Tener experiencia previa como coordinador o en su defecto haber realizado varios campos de voluntariado con anterioridad, con el fin de que la persona tenga experiencia en este tipo de eventos. Conocer la labor que realiza SCI. Nivel de inglés medio o alto. En los campos participan muchos voluntarios extranjeros y muchos de ellos no hablan español, por lo que el coordinador debe ayudarles a la integración y muchas veces deberá ejercer de traductor.

An important part of your stay will be socialising with the community of the centre. The presence of international volunteers in the centre brings "fresh air" to the limited social life of its residents. They will be curious about your country and your culture. It is a good idea to bring photos, music or any material which might enable you to present yourself and where you are coming from. It will be rare for them to speak other languages than Spanish. Therefore good knowledge of it is very recommended. You have to take into account that you will be living in a therapeutic community. Following the guidelines that will be given at the beginning of the workcamp (such as those concerning timetable, punctuality, relationship among residents and volunteers, telephone calls, not smoking or drinking...) is an essential part of the therapeutic approach. BASIDA kindly requests you to do so. A team of professionals will be always there to back you up. Do not hesitate to ask them for advice. We count on your understanding and sensibility.
