Working with lifesavers aged 14-26? Opportunity of a lifetime… Icelandic Search & Rescue

IF YOU ARE AGED OVER 18, AND WORK SPECIFICALLY WITH LIFESAVERS IN THE 14-26 AGE RANGE YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN THIS….

Hi All,

Apologies if you get multiple copies of this e-mail. Here’s an amazing opportunity for volunteers who work with lifesavers who are aged between 14 and 26! Please circulate this to your club/group and any individuals that you know who might be interested. When you read the application form I think you will agree that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
———————————————————
The Icelandic Search and Rescue organisation, ICE-SAR, are hosting an international youth leaders’ seminar from 1 Jul – 11 Jul 2011. The seminar will be attended by delegates from Iceland, Germany, the UK and the Czech Republic.

The aims of the seminar are to:
* Allow lifesaving youth leaders from different countries to build relationships with each other, in order to set up future international youth exchanges.
* Introduce lifesaving youth leaders to different rescue/lifesaving organisations.
* Give lifesaving youth leaders the opportunity to experience different rescue/lifesaving techniques and skills from each organisation.

The UK will be sending 3 male and 3 female delegates to the seminar. Five of the spaces are reserved for youth leaders who are actively involved in working with young lifesavers (“young lifesavers” means lifesavers aged between 14 and 26). The sixth space is also open to applicants who work at a strategic level within a national lifesaving organisation and are responsible for youth work within that organisation.

Delegates will benefit from heavily subsidised travel costs. Youth for Europe will pay 70% of the cost of travel to Iceland and all food, accommodation and travel costs when in Iceland.
