Evaluation time has come. Yesterday, 31st of May, GEAI EVS volunteers organised the evaluation of all activities/games they have leaded during the year in Youth Café Drumshanbo. Each child recieved the evaluation form in which we placed different smiley faces meaning the activities were: really good, good, ok or didn’t enjoy. The form also contained the following questions: “What did you enjoy most or least?” and “Have you learnt something new?”.

For a while the atmosphere was silent. Children were carefully thinking about what they have learned from the activities. The answers were different. But the interesting fact was that almost all participants ticked the box with the “GOOD” smiley face. And they have definitely learned lots of new information about environment, renewable energy sources, sustainability and recycling. One of the most interesting answers was: “I have learnt that fracking is affecting wildlife”.

It was such an useful and great experience for EVS volunteers as well. They understood a lot about theirselves and about Youth work.
