In order to grow stronger and to bring a vivid impact on our activities, ESN Timișoara needs an amazing fuel for its engine. This part is represented by our lovely volunteers who took part in a three days training event at Belinț, near Timișoara. This event was financed by the Erasmus+ Student and Alumni Association (ESAA) and it was held between the 20th and 22nd of October and brought together the volunteers of ESN Timișoara, new and experienced members, aimed to create a highly performing skilled team, with team members motivated and keen to develop themselves and others, using presentations, sessions and workshops.
Our volunteers had the possibility to acquire new skills, to learn about ESN values, to boost their creativity and to share with the rest of the team their experiences. Bringing them together does not only offer them the possibility to build a solid base for their knowledge as ESNers but also to become a team. They worked together in fulfilling certain tasks, they participated in various presentations and workshops such as Public Speaking and presentation skills, Intercultural communication and working in multicultural teams, Leadership, Project Management, Building your CV/ Cover Letter.
They were also involved in outdoor activities, karaoke nights and funny ice-breakers which were meant to bring them closer. After a weekend spent together, both the new volunteers and the more experienced ones formed a stronger team, well prepared for the activities we are planning to organize in the future. Also, they would become better prepared for the professional path they want to choose by acquiring a range of skills starting from working in a multicultural environment to time and crowd management.
Our section is not just an organization, it is a friendly home where our volunteers can grow, discover themselves and share their experiences with the other members. Volunteering has never been so self-awarding!
