Flashback – What my EVS story is – by Zoltán

I’ve been an EVS volunteer at PAKT (Parents And Kids Together), YMCA. This program gives support for the whole family. My tasks were organizing and leading some activities in the youth clubs in West Dublin. During the well-built four terms, I had an opportunity to represent the Hungarian culture, taking part in the Gospel Soulworks Choir, teaching the guitar, showing them „the banana piano”, building Mother day’s circuit cards, baking, making handcrafts, playing the djembe drums and having some more fun together. Sometimes it was challenging but Elaine, Norma and Brian helped me a lot, I felt that I belong to this team. Thank you everything! Choir, Makey, PAKT Staffs.
