The association Jaunatne smaidam / Youth for Smile is a non-profit non-governmental youth organization established in 2005. Our organization s mission says that we are a strong and value-based children and youth non-governmental organization that in achieving its goals, objectives and basic principles acts as impetus for the strengthening of the basic principles of civil society. Our main aim is to unite children and youth to promote their participation in non-formal education in order to develop their skills and abilities to take part actively in social processes at local, national and international levels.

Work: In 2010 JAUNATNE SMAIDAM started to work on the development of the outdoor education centre. As we work mainly with outdoor education methods and adventure pedagogic methods it is necessary to have a camp place for trainings and seminars. Besides, our scouting and guiding groups sport tourism team need a place for practical learning. In the outdoor education centre we plan to make low and high ropes routes, different tracks for team building and learning scouts and guides arts. Volunteers will help to clean the territory of the planed outdoor education centre i it is a forest and a meadow. We have a plan to build as well a camp fire place, toilets, educational tracks, etc. Cleaning work will include cutting shrubs, cleaning a ditch, mowing grass etc. Part of outdoor education centre is as well our youth house. Volunteers will help in preparation of wood for winter heating and as well in small renovation works.

Accomodation and food: Living conditions are very basic. The volunteers will be accommodated in the building of the youth house. Sometimes it could be necessary to stay in tents if the work requires. Toilets and washing facilities will be provided. Cooking will be done by volunteers themselves in the kitchen or on a campfire. Volunteers should bring their sleeping bags.
