It is the most wonderful time of the year… or at least it’s the time where we stop to reflect and consider how brilliant 2016 has been for us all here at Concordia. It’s also the moment where we get a short chance to breathe and pause before the planning for 2017 kicks off fully in January. 2017 is full of new opportunities for you too, join us as a leader on NCS, volunteer abroad or co-ordinate on our UK programme. 2017 – we are ready for you!

NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER 2016

November is a chance to have a month of planning. It is the month when we evaluate, plan and organise ourselves, our leaders and our volunteers for the year ahead. We visit UK hosts, go overseas to meet our friends and our colleagues from our two networks and ensure that we are ready. The exception is NCS; where participants and leaders are putting into action all their new skills and completing the autumn programme with awareness raising and a Reindeer Flash Mob.

We know that we often speak of the weather in the beginning of our newsletter, but with the summer officially checking out – how can we not?
Two other people checking out from Concordia this month are Maxime, our MTV volunteer in the office finishing of his 8 month Service Civique with us, and Hannah, our NCS Engagement Coordinator going on new adventures in Catalonia. Summer’s out, autumn is here with more cosy adventures for us, and for our volunteers.

NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2016

concordia logo_RGB_550

During the summer we’ve seen volunteers out in good and bad weather, making a real impact in their community and taking a leading role within the groups they are in. We’ve seen groups taking shape, going from strangers to best friends and seen the real impact volunteering can have, both in the volunteers themselves and the surroundings they’re in. 

We’ve said it before and don’t mind saying it again – we can’t do what we do without the great engagement of our volunteers, coordinators, NCS leaders & assistants & MTV’s. Thank you!

NEWSLETTER AUGUST 2016

NEWSLETTER AUGUST 2016

 

concordia logo_RGB_550

I always say that any commitment, may it be volunteering, residential or just going away for a day, goes in three stages; the honeymoon (a stage flowing of milk and honey), the challenging stage (can be compared to a Tuesday on a long week), and the making peace stage where you realise that you made new friends, gained new knowledge and are dreading the day you have to separate.

Whether this is correct, I leave it to you to decide.  However I hope that after the amount of residentials and projects we been running through July and August, I believe we are  one step closer to an answer.

NEWSLETTER JULY 2016

concordia logo_RGB_550

July is an intense month for Concordia. Many volunteers have gone to their projects overseas, many more are preparing to go and we also have several last minute opportunities not to miss. Our UK programme is in full swing and lots of international volunteers are arriving to the UK. Finally NCS has started! And lots of young people in the UK are now engaging with this life changing programme.
So lots going on for Concordia this month! And we will tell you all about it in this new newsletter, starting with a few thoughts about the results of the latest referendum, which make our work all the more important.
