Due to a cancellation VSI has an EVS place in Reykjavik, Iceland - Starting in early September! Vin is a day centre for people with mental illness run by the Red Cross in Iceland. The aim of the centre is to socially integrate otherwise isolated people with mental illness (hereafter called guests), to help them to change their routines and add something extra to their lives. This project gives them the possibility to have something interesting to do during the day, the activities include playing chess, gymnastics, listening to music, painting, writing, watching movies and socialising. The EVS volunteer will support the staff in all daily activities in the centre including interacting and communicating with the guests throughout the day, making tea and coffee, watering plants.  More details
