Sylvie & Arman join the Velos team!

The Velos team is growing!

Last week, two new volunteers joined us from the UK – Sylvie and Arman! They brought fresh energy in the space and an abundance of new ideas. Sylvie and Arman will be staying until December, organising workshops around photography, entrepreneurship, and global awareness. To follow some of their activities, keep an eye on our social media.

The Velos team is growing this month and what this means for us is more opportunity to development our operations and expand the support we provide to the young people who visit us.

New activities with SCI

This week a group of international volunteers from Service Civil International (SCI) delivered a variety of workshops for the young people of Velos Youth.

They did an incredible job! During their art sharing workshop they initiated discussions around music and classical artists. Their story-telling workshop was also great fun. The young people drew variations of each other – a portrait while having their eyes closed, a portrait of the person as their favourite animal, and more. The young people also shared their favourite places in Athens, and drew a picture representing those. We were glad to see the young people working with each other and actively participating in the workshop.

This great partnership will continue until the end of the month. We look forward to seeing what else SCI have planned for us!
