A Real Week as a Start with Youths

All this time we have been trying catching youths and their activities going on here along with different activities going on at the office. This week we organised a meeting with youth leaders, volunteers and been in touch with new volunteers who want to start as a youth in Red Cross. It was really awaited event for us where we mostly discussed on the youth activities, challenges and more feedbacks on what can we do in days to come. It was also important for us in the way that we know how youths do or try doing things.

This week Skien Red Cross Youths have started an activity in a Haug Hill nursing home in Skien, for elderly people. The concept is interested young people visiting elderly home, once in a while, and spending some good time doing activities that elderly people would love – talking and listening to them, taking them out in fresh air, riding them on bike, playing games, etc. and all in all being creative and letting them enjoy the moments.

We also been in an introductory course for the new volunteers in Telemark Red Cross. We found it very interesting to see how new volunteers can actually decide what kind of activity they want to join in Red Cross through such course.

Some interesting things that happened.
