Miejsce: Funchal, Madera, Portugalia

The host of this project, University of Madeira Students’ Union, is an organisation with international and multicultural remit and runs several projects each year. The EVS volunteer’s role is crucial in supporting these initiatives which have a wide and cross-sectional  range of target groups: children, young people adults and elderly, both locals and visitors.

The core project of AAUMa that the EVS volunteers will participate in and support is the Universitas Project, which encompasses several academic projects.


Volunteer’s activity dates: 06/05/2019 – 06/01/2020
Duration: 8 months

Guided tours – These activities involve support in daily guided tours to areas of the Jesuit College, Regional Parliament of Madeira, Monastery of Santa Clara and many other tourist attractions, supporting the conservation of the building, Interaction with foreign visitors, organization of musical events etc. Through such guided tours,the volunteers promote educational visits for all the  Madeira region.

Educational Visits – the EVS volunteers will contribute to the educational visits to University spaces (laboratories in various areas as sports, chemistry, biology) and other attractions in Funchal as the city hall, the jesuits college, among others. This is aimed at developing the volunteers’ personal and professional skills as speak foreign languages, communication, teamwork and cooperation, which – especially given that this project is open to young people who face some kind of isolation – ultimately may contribute to the removal of barriers that hinder their integration into society.

Sports Activities – planning of sports activities as  tournments in soccer („Troféu do Reitor” and „Torneio de Futebol de 7”), volleyball, among others ; crosstraining; visit Madeira trough ”levadas”; implementation and development of new events related to physical and sport activities promoting wellbeing and health care, collaborating in the development of events such as conferences and seminars, and helping to develop support material for students reflecting respect for the rights and duties of them.

In the matter of civic education policies for youth through the pursuit of the principles of respect for freedoms of expression and of thought, the volunteers will collaborate in activities as write texts for the magazine ”Et al.” and for the site where they tell their experiences and expression of thoughts, feelings and opinions. . This is aimed at developing the volunteers’ personal and professional skills as capacity for reflection and self-reflection, as well as the development of critical thinking.

A propos of the environmental responsibility through the implementation and monitoring of sustainability policies within the University, the volunteer will collaborate in activities as awareness actions of the student community of the archipelago; collection of paper consumption indicators and promotion of good practices of paper consumption indicators and promotion of good practices; involvement of the population with the promotion of reforestation actions.

Students’ Help Desk – The volunteer will learn about all the work realized in Students’ Help Desk,  by helping in the copy center and other tasks related with students support through the face-to-face and remote attendance, all the revenue is reinvested in AAUMA’s social projects (see below). In these tasks, the volunteer will always be accompanied by collaborators from AAUMa and will „learn by doing”.

Erasmus+ and EVS promotion – The volunteers will help to organize events to promote EVS and Erasmus+ within the youth community of Madeira, such as workshops and talks. The promotional activities are especially important in an ultra-peripherical region of Europe like Madeira, where its residents face a degree of geographical isolation and therefore a restricted access to opportunities. We believe that EVS and Erasmus+ are important tools for tackling this issue in Madeiran youth.

Volunteer’s activity dates: 06/05/2019 – 06/05/2020

Conferences,workshops,the soirees of music,exhibitions, the gatherings and many other events will be run. The volunteer will go through all the necessary steps to complete the action to ensure the interaction with the audience. As a member of the Department of Communication,the volunteer will have a role in every project developed by AAUMa.This includes all the sport activities,like levada walks,karting or football tournaments,in which the volunteer will not only prepare the promotion material for the public,like banners,flyers and posters, before the events take place but will also capture photos and videos of the events.

Other projects are our social projects: UMajuda, Nourishment Grand,Supply Scholarship and the To Read project.These are projects intended to help the community,the first one providing school supplies,books and other material to schools, and the others providing meals,school supplies and books for the university students. While the first one happens once per year on a different school,the other three take place throughout the whole year at the University of Madeira and several tasks have to be executed, like the design of banners, websites or videos related to these projects, as well as the capture of photos and videos.

Lastly, AAUMa develops other initiatives that happen,like the formation courses or the summer camp Doutorecos, for example. Volunteer will have to demonstrate creativity in prepration promotional materials to attract both parents and children to participate in the proposed activities about(e.g. music,dance,photography,theatre and literature workshops) Similarly to the projects described before, the role of the volunteer will be the same: preparing the informative material for the public, preparing the digital content and the printed content, and capturing photos and videos of the projects in course.
About all of those events volunteer will also prepare the summary in form of artciles which he/she will spread among Madeira Island by local media and communication channels which he/she deems as appropriate.

PR and promotion activities will allow to volunteer:

There are 37 double rooms and 45 triple rooms. The rooms must be shared with other roommates of the same sex (mostly 3 people in one room). The Residence is a few minutes by walk from their working place. Volunteers will have free wi-fi in the University Residence. Volunteers will be responsible for the maintenance of the house, and they will have monthly check.)

Volunteers will get money to their food (only for the weekends). During the week volunteers will get lunch and dinner in the Residence Restaurant. HO will give them a portuguese bank account and will transfer the money. The volunteer at the end of the project will sign the statement that has received money and accomodation support.

The volunteers in the project shall be between 17 and 30 years old. The volunteer that participate in this project will be living and working together with other EVS volunteers that do their service in Funchal, as well as with local volunteers, both male and female.

We are open for all of the candidatures, doesn’t matter age, but attitude of candidates. We want to have strongly motivated young people, who will be focused on the project’s objective, that do not turn up that it was only a momentary Portugal trip whim. We are going to not discriminate the volunteer by his/her gender, we will be objective in our choice if the motivation of them will be equal.
