Vacancy for Volunteer in Slovenia
Location: Sevnica, Slovenia
I. Project: »STARA ŠOLA«, platform for local exchange
Funny prices, serious purposes
Stara šola (Old School) is a place in Boštanj which works like a working cooperative; a group of persons from different backgrounds, age, cultures which have similar interests are working together to keep the project Stara šola alive.
Purpose of the project Stara šola is on the one hand keeping safe the environment, its natural resources and spreading technical handmade knowledge, and on the other hand educating, raising qualifications and employability of socially unprivileged target groups (people over 50. years, young bellow 25 year with unfinished highschool).
Main activity in Stara Šola is a reuse center or a shop of second hand stuff, which people donate, because they do not need them anymore, but they could be useful for somebody else. These things are separated, cleaned or renewed and then sold again in the store for symbolic prices.
In Stara šola people can find:
• Second hand products in a good shape, with low prices
Fashion/retro value, useful objects for your home – attractive prices
• Reused, redesigned clothes or objects, re-made by different amateur or professional clothes designers
Originality – Alternative offer
• Local products or handmade creations, with a presentation of handmade process through the weekly handicraft workshops
Support to a sustainable and local development
