Lead creative workshops for Ukrainian refugee children

What is this about?

During the summer of 2023, the team at the Situational Center "Open Doors" turned heroes from TimeHeroes.org into Bulgarian language teachers for Ukrainian children in Sofia. The children loved the lessons, especially those that included games and other creative activities. Now is the perfect time to get inspired for new good deeds in support of children displaced by the war in Ukraine.

The team at the center needs assistance again during the summer months, this time not only for important Bulgarian language lessons but also for conducting various creative workshops for the children. Join in!

What are the tasks?

You'll need to assist with organizing and conducting various creative workshops for children aged between 7 and 14. Options include:

  • Art workshops (painting, clay modeling, jewelry making, etc.)
  • Music and dance workshops
  • Games and entertainment to stimulate collaboration, creativity, and social skills
  • Theater workshops
  • Bulgarian or English language lessons
  • You can participate in workshops that match your interests and skills.

When and where?

The workshops will be held on weekdays between June 1st and August 31st, 2024, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The organizers will create a schedule to make it convenient for everyone involved.
