WHO WE ARE:
LM Village is a small refugee camp based in Lechania, Greece. It is a four hour drive from Athens. This camp is home to 230 people, of which 150 are children. The Schoolbox Project provides these children with informal education, art, play, and dance, all with a trauma-informed approach. This means that our programs are designed with consideration for the short and long-term effects of trauma, to prioritize the unique needs of each child and to avoid retraumatization in a highly challenging environment.
The Schoolbox Project provides mobile, trauma-informed education, art, and play to children displaced by crisis.
WHO WE NEED:
We need people who have experience working with children in an informal education/ arts/ crafts/ sports/ activities capacity.
Priority is given to refugees, credentialed teachers, art therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, social work professionals, 1:1 behavioral aides, sports coaches, group home staff, foster parents and those with:
- Trauma informed care knowledge and experience, though online and in person training and 24 hour support will be provided
