Max Grote, EVS volunteer 2014/2015


My name is Max Grote, I'm 18 years old and I come from Germany.
For the next nine months, I will work in the Office of VIEWS INTERNATIONAL as a volunteer to do my European Voluntary Service.
For those of you who don't know it yet: the European Voluntary Service (EVS) is a European project within the “Erasmus Plus” Programme by the European commission which gives young people between 18 and 30 years the possibility to work in social, nonprofit and non-formal projects for organisations in foreign European countries.

Both, the volunteer and his environment (organisation, people from the european country...) benefit by the intercultural exchange and the experience of working together.
Hearing about the European Voluntary Service and especially of this project, I was directly fascinated by the thought of having the possibility to work for VIEWS INTERNATIONAL in Belgium and to work with the young people in Belgium, as well as doing international projects.

I will be writing, planing and coordinating projects for youth people as well as writing for the website and representing VIEWS in general.
Creating articles for the Views Newsletter will also be a part of my work field.

Now some personal information about me:
My biggest hobby is music. I love playing the piano, singing, playing the percussion drums, mixing music/deejaying, realizing my own musical ideas and I especially love doing that all together with other people. In my free time, I also love to do lots of different sports, for example running (athletics), inlineskating, skiing, jogging, swimming, playing football and riding the bike, as well as to listen to music, to cook, to spend time with my friends and to meet new people.

I'm also a member of the local scouts group in my hometown and I belong to the team of youth leaders. We organise regular activities, like the annual tent camp for children, but we also always plan new and different events for children and young people every year.
I'm very motivated for my project in VIEWS and I'm looking forward to unique experiences and great meetings.

I'm looking forward to become a part of the dynamic and lively team of VI and I hope to make a good contribution with my ideas and new projects.
