1 INTERNATIONAL WORKCAMPS PROGRAMME 2015 IN MEXICO
2 AMVIAC AMVIAC (Mexican Association of International Volunteering A.C.) was born on the December the 5th, 2014 at the initiative of Mexican ex- volunteers and professionals wishing to participate in the transformation of the country through the integration of the International Volunteering in projects in Mexico organized by civil associations, municipalities, communities and organized groups. This transformation of Mexico materialises as well by sending Mexican young people to projects abroad with the idea that this experience can, upon their return to the country, encourage them to engage more actively in the work of their community. VISION The association's vision is the transformation of Mexican society, especially youth, giving them opportunities to travel and to live unique experiences as volunteers both in Mexico and abroad participating in projects of general interest and reverting that experience in their communities, schools, families, neighbourhoods, organizations and jobs, for the betterment of our country.
3 ACTIVITIES OF AMVIAC WEEKEND WORKCAMPS - AMVIAC proposes workcamps for groups and individuals wishing to participate in specific actions proposed by organizations, communities and institutions over a weekend. INTERNATIONAL WORKCAMPS - Organized jointly with civil associations, municipalities and other institutions, international volunteering camps are spaces for exchange and encounter between people from different backgrounds and cultures, gathered to support as volunteer a project of Community interest in the educational, social, environmental or cultural areas. MEDIUM AND LONG TERM VOLUNTEERING The association integrates national and international volunteers in projects with duration of 1 up to 12 months. During this period, the volunteer is an added value to the project complementing the work done by the host organization and it represents a unique experience for both, the volunteer and the host organization. CAMPAIGNS AMVIAC participates in the mobility campaign of the use of bicycle promoted by several organizations. Concretely, the organization is a promoter of the Ride Safe in your City and Ride for Peace campaigns in the city of Cuautla. MEETINGS - In order to maintain regular communication, the association meets several times a year to evaluate their actions reflect on various issues, take decisions and spend moments of conviviality. PRESENTATIONS - Promoting volunteering is done, among other means, through presentations at various spaces such as schools, universities, specialized academic institutions, youth groups, offices of Tourism, Youth Institutes and others. VOLUNTEERING ABROAD - AMVIAC sends young people from 15 years old on to international volunteer projects in more than 20 countries in all regions of the world. These projects are organized by associations, municipalities, local groups in those countries and promoted by our partner organizations.
4 To our international partners INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEERING IN MEXICO: This programme presents the work that has been prepared by AMVIAC and its partner organisations in Mexico with the purpose to increase the number of existing projects already proposed by other Mexican organisations so more people, both Mexican and foreigners, have the opportunity to live this experience. Our camps are open to people 18 years old and over, Adults, Seniors and families. People with certain incapacities are welcomed to participate previous approval of AMVIAC. The themes of the workcamps reflect the priorities established by the General Assembly of AMVIAC which are Education, Environment, Cultural Heritage and Cooperation, although some other themes could be addressed in various projects. In all projects, the camp leaders will address the Sustainable Development Goals Post2015 in order to make participants aware about them but mainly to raise awareness of people about the importance of carrying them out in every day life. The camps are planned to host as many Mexican young people as possible because there is a need for our youth to join these type of projects as the cost of traveling abroad is, by far, the biggest restriction they have to participate in international voluntary service projects. All camps have a participation fee of $3,000 Mexican pesos that can be paid upon arrival or by PayPal before the camp starts. AMVIAC and its partners in Mexico do not receive funding from the government or any other institution. The fees requested to volunteers as participation fees are used essentially to cover for accommodation and food. Sometimes the project host or organizer provides accommodation but there are always costs related to the stay of volunteers. A part of your fee is to cover administration costs, preparation and evaluation of the camps. The regions of intervention are Morelos, Distrito Federal and Guanajuato in Central Mexico and Chiapas in the Southern part of the country. AMVIAC has among its members several ex-volunteers and former camp leaders who will support in the leading of the camps together with local young people who know the context and the projects and can facilitate the integration and communication with the local communities. The workcamps last between 12 and 15 days hosting a maximum of 15 volunteers. There will be camps from June until December some in rural some in urban areas. There is no official language and we hope all the foreign participants are keen to learn some Spanish. There are no possibilities for the moment for AMVIAC to provide insurance during the workcamps, therefore volunteers are expected to bring their own insurance. Consuming drugs is NOT allowed and will not be tolerated, as the drug situation in our country is quite delicate regarding this issue. We ask you to prepare well your volunteers and advice them to restrain from using any type of drugs.
