A Trinket for a Book

One of the most important projects initiated by ESN Timisoara is A Trinket for a Book. This project started three years ago and had a huge national and international success. This year the fourth edition was held. The workshopʼs goal from 20-23 March 2015 was meant to share Romanian traditions with Erasmus students, and to use their creativity in producing the trinkets. They created 400 trinkets along with ESN Timisoaraʼs volunteers, and on 25-27 March they sold the trinkets (priced at 5 lei) in special arranged booths in West University of Timisoara, Faculty of Economic Sciences, and Faculty of Law. The Erasmus students were the ones who sold the trinkets along with ESNʼs volunteers, forming groups of 5-6 people. The group who sold most of the trinkets were awarded. In all these days, they collected 1500 RON.

Among the most engaged volunteers in this project, Dana Polacec was awarded for the volunteer of the month due to her involvement in the Welcome Week, and Andreea Țoca got the most interactive volunteer and best buddy award, for being so helpful, friendly, and engaged into the A trinket for a book project.

With the money raised we bought books and school supplies which we gave away to children without financial possibilities. The books were donated to Walther Rudolf Association in Timisoara on Saturday, May 16 2015 and thus our mission was accomplished. ESN Timisoara's Star Award winning project "A Trinket for a Book" brought love, warmth and smiles in those children's lives! Last Saturday our volunteers along with a few Erasmus students gave away books to children from Rudolf Walther foster care in Timisoara, and had the opportunity to entertain them as well. The books were purchased with money raised by our Trinket Workshop. The children were well receptive and friendly. We are proud of our kind volunteers, and we hope we managed to inspire and motivate these young souls. 'Cause when you give love, you receive love!

Special thanks to everyone involved in this project and helping us to put a smile on a child’s face!

New volunteers in ESN Timisoara

Luna Septembrie a fost una fructuoasă pentru campania noastră de recrutare. După două săptămâni în care am urmărit să îi încurajăm pe cei interesați să aplice pentru a intra în familia ESN Timișoara prin testimoniale scrise de voluntarii mai vechi, prin prezentarea beneficiilor pentru dezvoltarea personală și profesională de care un voluntar se bucură o dată trecut de perioada de probă, mulți doritori s-au arătat. Am fost foarte bucuroși să îi primim cu brațele deschise. Entuziaștii voluntari ne-au prezentat ideile lor prin care pot contribui la creșterea familiei ESN Timișoara și s-au implicat în activități precum Welcome Week și prezentarea informațiilor necesare pentru studenții interesați să aplice pentru o mobilitate Erasmus+ la standul din holul Universității de Vest din Timișoara. Tema recrutării din Septembrie a fost „ESN te duce în teambuilding”. Ne dorim foarte mult ca noii voluntari să înțeleagă mai bine cum funcționează ESN și, mai ales, să ne cunoască pe noi mai bine, să n…

Volunteers- the core of ESN Timisoara

In order to grow stronger and to bring a vivid impact on our activities, ESN Timișoara needs an amazing fuel for its engine. This part is represented by our lovely volunteers who took part in a three days training event at Belinț, near Timișoara. This event was financed by the Erasmus+ Student and Alumni Association (ESAA) and it was held between the 20th and 22nd of October and brought together the volunteers of ESN Timișoara, new and experienced members, aimed to create a highly performing skilled team, with team members motivated and keen to develop themselves and others, using presentations, sessions and workshops.
 Our volunteers had the possibility to acquire new skills, to learn about ESN values, to boost their creativity and to share with the rest of the team their experiences. Bringing them together does not only offer them the possibility to build a solid base for their knowledge as ESNers but also to become a team. They worked together in fulfilling certain tasks, they parti…

Throwback to Eduk8 Timișoara in 2016

Eduk8 Starter Timișoara in 2016 – City Guide for a Day
  There are events during your lifetime that you will always remember. These are echoes of some long-ago experiences that you will keep in your mind forever. There are feelings, people, places that had a tremendous effect on your personal development. This is what Miruna, one of the participants in the event Eduk8 Starter in Timișoara, says about her experience in our city.   "For me and, I can guarantee that for any other Eduk8er, one of these life-changing moments is the decision to attend a Starter. My journey into the Eduk8 lifecycle started with Eduk8 Starter in Timișoara, between the 20th -28th of February 2016. For this edition, 95 applications were received and only 50 ESNers were selected. The amount of knowledge gained was amazing, but the real value of attending this training event was the crushing experience of a true, honest self-discovery. The bold truth you find out about yourself is the result of a week full of …
