SEPTEMBRI TEGIJA

NIMI:Maris Veski
VANUS:18

MIDA Septembris VABATAHTLIKUNA TEGID?
Olin abiks Teadlaste ÖÖ Festivalil Roheliste Telgis. Olin abis Tartu Rallyl, kus aitasin komplekteerida rallipasse ja silte välja lõigata. Olin abis pileti müügis kohapeal ja parkimises. Olin samuti abis veel tallis Saksa Hobused, kus jalutasin hobuseid ja avasin ja sulgesin uksi,peale igat sõitu. Jagasin esimesel septembril, Tarkusepäeval flaiereid Täheka kohta ja meisterdasin telgis lastega ussikesi. Vabal ajal käin noortekas lihtsalt juttu rääkimas ja aega viitmas.

MIKS TEGELED VABATAHTLIKU TEGEVUSEGA?
Vabatahtlikuks olemine annab mulle palju uusi kogemusi nii koostöö osas, kui ka oskusi erinevas olukorras inimestega suhtlemiseks. Ma teen seda, kuna mulle meeldib aidata inimesi, igakord on uued ülesanded ja ma saan väikese osagi endast anda, et asjad paremini ja kiiremini toimiksid.

MILLISED ON NEED EMOTSIOONID, MIDA OLED TUNDNUD PÄRAST SEDA, KUI OLED MIDAGI VABATAHTLIKUNA TEINUD?
Maratonidel on alati hea meel,kui saan osalejatele medaleid lõpuks kaela panna ja nad on küll väsinud ja samas õnnelikud, kuna nad saavad tunnustatud osalemise eest. Minu emotsioonid on alati positiivsed ja mu tuju muutub paremaks , kui näen  nende emotsioone lõpuks või vahepeal, mil tahan neid aidata ja pakun näiteks vett.

MIDA OLED VABATAHTLIKU TÖÖ KOGEMUSEST ÕPPINUD?
 Olen õppinud, et kui kõike koos teha, siis saame alati hakkama. Koostöö on alati kõige tähtsam, sest kui üks pool on negatiivne, siis tullakse ka sinu poole negatiivse suhtumisega, kui sa aga lähed inimeste poole positiivse suhtumisega ja rõõmsana, siis minnakse sinu juurest hea või väga hea tujuga minema ja tekib soov ka ehk järgmine kord appi kutsuda sind.

8 sügist hetke noortekeskuses


Suvi on läbi saanud. Ilmselgelt. Nii on ka noortekeskuse tegemistel uus nägu, uued huviringid ja uued tegevused. Meil käib noortekeskuses igapäevaselt päris palju uusi lapsi, peamiselt algklasside õpilasi. Ja meil saab nii palju nalja! Me teeme koos nalja, teeme koolitöid, mängime kohvikut, teeme veel nalja, mängime lauamänge ja mis peamine - meil on koos hea ja me tunneme rõõmu koosolemisest.

Meil on ka palju muutusi toimunud. Kas tead, et meil on nüüd piljard saali eesruumis? (kui tahad tulla mängima, siis lepi eelnevalt aeg kokku noorsootöötaja Tiinaga) Või et meie kuri boss kolis kontorist välja? Aga kus ta nüüd tööd teeb? Tule uuri välja! 

Öeldakse, et üks pilt ütleb rohkem kui tuhat sõna. Seepärast tahangi teiega jagada ilusaid hetki, mis on kaameraga kinni püütud ja mis iseloomustavad nii hästi meie sügist.  



Meil on 7-12 aastaste näitering, kus valmistume jõuluetenduseks. Etendus valmib noorte improvisatsioonilistel etüüdidel ning on seotud liikumisega, sest 2014 aasta on ju liikumisaasta. Me ei jõua juba ära oodata, millal saame oma esimese etendusega esineda!


Hetked mängutoas. Siin me mängimegi kohvikut, kus pakutakse imehead õunateed või ülitervislikku kibuvitsa mahla. Me mängime erinevaid lauamänge (meil on palju uusi põnevaid lauamänge, tule tšeki järgi!), mängime autodega, mängime legodega ja muidugi mängime ka lauajalgpalli. Õnneks on aega mänguhoos ka noorsootöötajaga pildile tulla! 


Töötajate vahel on tugev koostöö, üksteisemõistmine ja toetamine. Me kasvame üksteise kõrval, me õpime ja areneme iga päev. Ja kui kellelgi on raske, siis me ei jäta teda üksi. Ma olen nii õnnelik, et mul on nii erilised ja imelised töökaaslased! Meil on üks keel, mida me räägime - noorsootöö. 


Kunstiringis me lõikame, kleebime, voldime, meisterdame, värvime, joonistame. Taustaks kuulame rahulikku muusikat ja see rõõm, mis meid valdab, kui oleme saanud oma tunni töö valmis.. on sõnulkirjeldamatu! Kui tunni alguses tundubki, et töö on liiga keeruline, siis on hea tunne, et saad midagi uut õppida ja ennast ületada. 




Poisteringis õpime kaarti lugema, kompassi kasutama ja kõike muud tarvilikku, sest kohe varsti lähevad poisteringi poisid koos juhendajatega metsa! Ja sõdur käib neil ka külas, kes tekitab kunstiringi tüdrukutes suurt elevust. Ikkagi sõdur ju. 


Kunstiringis õpime ka taaskasutust. Õpime kuidas saab asjadest, mis muidu ära viskaks, midagi uut ja vajalikku meisterdada. Sellel pildil õpime, kuidas kalendripiltidest meisterdada karp. Ja see oli nii lihtne, et iga laps meisterdas endale vähemalt 5 karpi! Toome teieni ka teised taaskasutuse ideed, ikka selleks, et maailm, kus me elame oleks puhtam ja ilusam ja see, mis meist maha jääks, ei ole prügimäed. 


Meil oli joonistusvõistlus "Tere sügis!", mis tekitas palju elevust, pilte esitati palju ja žüriil oli raske välja valida kolme kõige huvitavamat pilti, sest kõik pildid olid nii ilusad ja hoolega tehtud. Kindlasti tuleb joonistusvõistlusi veel, sest meie noortele meeldib väga joonistada! Ja nagu ma postituse alguses ütlesin - üks pilt ütleb rohkem kui tuhat sõna

Ma soovin Sulle meie kõigi töötajate poolt ilusat sügist! Et sinu päevades oleks sama palju rõõmu ja armsaid hetki nagu meil! 

Ja kui sa pole meil ammu külas käinud, siis tea, et me ootame Sind! Jah, just Sind!

Tere!

In this two last weeks I have been some busy, the first week I was in Rõuge and the second one, planning the youth exchance that will take place here in Estonia from August 6th, during six days. The project is cowork between organisations from UK, Spain, Romania and Estonia. 

I start writing about my experience in this little village, next to Võru, Rõuge. This village have surrounded by seven lakes, one of them the most deepest in Estonia, 38m. There are located also church that is the most important in this region. It is a beautiful place.


Rõuge
                   

                                 
I was there during six days, since Tuesday until Sunday. I worked in one youth center. I will explain my days by order. The first day, Tuesday was to introduce me to my coworkers during this short time, my work place, my host and the village. I will write about my host, Qati, other volunteer from Georgia, she was a good host, she prepared to me georgian food, showing me Rõuge and spending good moments together. Sharing this time with her was really good for me, I learned many things about her country, her culture and her history.
The second day in Rõuge was starting to planning the family´s embassadors day, that day was on Thursday. We were suppose to prepare activities for the families while the embassadors had a other activities. We made different crafts for the sons, and also activities for the wifes and husbands. The next day, they came, and there was one exhibition about Rõuge, and others activities, it was a interesting day, between people from many differents countries. 
On Friday, we were preparing the next day, Saturday, because in Rõuge all years there are one boat race and around of this activity, there are other more activities, like concerts, food, beach, volley championship... My work this day was face painting. I was with Qati all the morning painting kids faces, with the good weather was very funny. After one long night I came back to Qati´s place and the next day I came back to Tartu. 

The last week, after Monday to rest, I started to collaborate with Riin, in this youth exchance. During two days, one man from London, one girl from Romania, two youngstes from Estonia, Riin and me were thinking and discussing about accomodation, transportation, risk assesments, agreements, etc. These day were really intensives but at the end I think so that the result is so good. We worked very well. Everyone contributed with their ideas and with point of views, it was really interesting. Now I hope so that the yout exchange is successful.

At the end of this week I have my last training here in Estonia, in small village named Suru, for talk and share my experience here during these months with others volunteers. I think so that it will be great. I will write about it the next week and about my little trip for Viljandi and the youth work camp in Tähe Noortekeskus.

Discovering world with youth exchange

Tere!

Two weeks ago took place youth exchange between youngsters from England (UK), Estonia, Romania and Spain. Teenagers and young people from these countries came to Tartu to spend one extraordinary week. This experience with them was really good. We did different activities together for know each other a little bit better. Learn about our different cultures and give something as a nice, memorable experience to each other.  

We learned in this project, how to share our different points of view about topics like homophobia, racism and discrimination in general. In these debates we also had some arguments about the different cultural aspects of discrimination. But everybody could learn something and enrich themselves. After this period here in Tartu we experimented much feelings, emotions and sentiments.

After that I know better Estonia, other countries, and even my own country. It was for me an very important moment. Because after work during these last months with kids I have have the opportunity to work with youngsters and understand them a little bit more. To know how it is work with them and how sometime can be very complex. I am so grateful that I had this occasion.

Thanks to all of you, 

Marina

Summer


Tere!

After almost one month I have come back to Tartu and my routine has changed because the school year has ended. The Summer is here and we have different plans for these months. 
The last week I started with this new plan. There was a little camp at Tähe Noorteklubi where the kids did different activities during all day until 16.00 pm. I was there on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 
Thursday at the morning we did one game. This game consisted in search questions that they were hidden by the youth center. After they had to answer them, and the next day there were present for the winners. In the afternoon, after the lunch, we went to the cinema for watch Maleficent, and it was really good. 



The next day, Friday, in the morning we went to police station, one policewoman show us the place and how they work. I think so that it was very interesting for the kids to have any knowledge about this job. 
After we come back to Tähe Noorteklubi for the lunch and they had free time until the next excursion to the radio station. This second visit was also very refreshing for them, one locutor was explaining us how he works and the kids could talk on the microphone. 

Saturday was just the morning, it was the last day and one photographer, Siim Tiirik, cames to the center for show us his work also, and his photos. After that was presented diplomas and the camp was over.

This week was special because on Monday was Võidupüha and Tuesday was Jaanipäev. The night between these two days, they celebrate the most longest day of the year with fires, music and barbecues, it was very nice.



Way Tartu-Tallin

Bye-bye!

Tere!

This was my last week before leaving to Madrid during almost two weeks. The last week I did different activities outside. I have been at the Melliste´s beach with the kids and the youngsters. We did a barbecue, playing volleyball and swimming. It was a nice afternoon, enyoing the good weather.

The last thursday I was introducing the spanish culture in Roiu and I did one traditional dish to show them the spanish gastronomy. It was interesting because some youngsters have been in Sevilla the last year and they show me photos also about their trip.

At the weekend I was in Narva for visiting the mines and the highest waterfall in Estonia. I liked so much this little trip, because beside I could see the sea.

Tomorrow I'm going to Madrid, I hope you have a good week.
