You just woke up in the heaven for all the help you provided for people in need during your career as a volunteer… or the second option is you are discovering another piece of Universe Youth in Action and today is the first day of project. So, you jump out of the bed and practice in front of the mirror sentences like „my name is… Favorite color – yes blue as well“, deleting 3% of your memory to remember 18 new multi-culti names, bright smile on the face and you are pretty ready for the getting know each other session…
It wouldn’t be the training focused on fighting unemployment with volunteering when it would have usual structure – so don’t be surprised when you instead of typical activities find yourself sitting with another participants in the tram KISSing ( Keep It Short and Simple way ) each other just with basic information about yourself... Don’t worry that you don’t recognize the people belonging to the group – the people are heading to join the next volunteering adventure and then the rest of the people in tram practicing different styles of their sour faces floating through their daily routine... But it’s hard to stand the positive vibe and so it can happen that a smiling face complete the sour faces collection and you land on the seat with some local people explaining them why the tram ride is such an intercultural experience… 20 minutes later on the another side of the city you can just see the next track of the rainbow supporting the colors of Ostrava leading to office of Charita.
