13 Sections of ESN Lithuania came together on the 30th-31st of March during National Platform 39 that was organised by ESN VMU, and volunteers from ESN Lithuania had an informative and interesting event together with guests from Latvia, Poland, Serbia and Ukraine.

Multiple elections are taking place in Lithuania this year, and ESN Lithuania is no exception. New members of the National Board, Coordinators and Chairs were elected, and they will be working together to ensure a successful future of this organisation. Elected National Board of ESN Lithuania: National Representative - Lukas Blusevičius, Communication Manager - Ugnė Zieniūtė, Events Manager - Agnė Petrauskaitė, Projects Manager - Monika Lisauskaitė. Also, ESN Lithuania elected Health and Well-being Coordinator - Šarūnas Selvestravičius and HR committee chair - Ieva Pociūtė. Votings were definitely a key part of this National Platform because the importance of  in the upcoming European Parliament election was also discussed. Erasmus Student Network is trying to raise awareness regarding active citizenship, and ESN Lithuania is doing its part to inform people about the importance of expressing your opinion in the EU elections.

The 30 years anniversary of ESN was also a major topic during the second day of the Platform. Celebrations will be happening all around Europe this year due to this beautiful anniversary, and ESN Lithuania is already thinking about ways that we could mark this occasion in our country.

Moreover, it was a great National Platform because Timetravels, who are one of our biggest partners, attended the event and provided valuable information that will keep our volunteers motivated and excited about the upcoming trips that they can share with their international students.

Participants also had an opportunity to hear more about Erasmus in Schools (EiS). Members from our organisation will be traveling to multiple schools in Lithuania together with international students and teaching kids about multiculturality, Erasmus+ and their countries. EiS visitations will be happening for two semesters, and we are certain that this will be beneficial for volunteers and the kids.

Finally, sections have voted and decided that the next National Platform will be organised by ESN KUK in Klaipėda.

It was a successful National Platform and people are already waiting for the next one because they will be able to make new connections again and learn more about what is happening in our network.

   One the 12th-13th of March, 15 sections came together as the 27th National Platform of ESN Lithuania began. Organized cooperatively by ESN KK and ESN VU KHF. With the plenaries and workshops being held in VU Kaunas Faculty of Humanities. Among other things, this NP was focused upon the reports of the National Board members, National Coordinators, National Committees and of the sections themselves.

   On the first day of the Platform they saw the reports of Eduk8 Starter participants, "Colours of Lithuania", CNR Jyvaskyla and the National Board.

   The day came to a energetic end as ESN ISM and then ESN ŠU presented their candidacies for the OC of NP'28. And finally the evening was a part where all faces began to fade, as the night brought on the Masquarade. An evening part with many games and a wonderful performance by the OC.

   On the second day of the Platform. For the second time at a Platform of ESN Lithuania an infomarket was held to present the sections, where everyone got a chance to get up and personal, meet face to face and learn all they could want about other sections and share gadgets with eachother.

   The votings decided ESN ŠU as the OC for the next platform and "Go Xtreme" as a National Event.

If society is a damsel in distress, then volunteers are superheroes who are on call 24 hours a day. Why? Because it is rewarding in so many different ways! If you are wondering whether it’s worth the time then keep reading to find some of the benefits volunteering can offer you.

1. We develop new skills.

Through our work as volunteers we develop soft skills such as adaptability and problem solving, as well as hard skills such as proficiency in a foreign language and networking. Both sets of skills boost our employability and make us competitive in the labour market.

gif2.gif

2. We travel.

Thanks to our activities, we can travel all across Europe, discover new places and meet new people. As much as travelling is a fun experience in itself, it also allows us to develop a sense of wonder, foster new values, and helps us realise what it truly means to identify yourself as a European citizen.

gif7.gif

3. We learn informally.

Volunteering serves as a reflection of who you are―it shows that you have been active during your student years, that you took initiative, and that you performed in high, decision-making positions which helped you foster entrepreneurial and leadership skills. That is enough to set you apart from other candidates.

gif9.gif

4. We work on improving ourselves.

Social interaction is a key component of life. Volunteering makes you open your door to strangers who soon become your family. It pushes you out of your shell and motivates you to work on improving yourself. Soon enough, you become a master of social and communication skills, and presenting yourself to new people brings you joy, not sweaty palms.

gif.gif

5. We learn languages.

Volunteering in an international environment does wonders for your language skills. It helps you improve the language you already know, practise speaking a language you have only started learning or get you into learning one you never thought about before. Plus, it looks amazing on your CV!

gif13.gif gif13a.gif

6. We celebrate differences.

For a continent with as rich a history as Europe, it is important to get a better understanding of other cultures, something we as volunteers have first-hand access to. Understanding leads to respect and respect leads to knowledge. Learning and participating in other people’s traditions, exploring their cuisines and discovering their differences is not only fun, but also rewarding.

giphy.gif giphy (1).gif

7. We make friends.

The amount of people you meet through volunteering is one of its greatest advantages―you make a network so big, making sure you always have someone to turn to. We do not only meet potential employees, we make friends all over Europe which means that as volunteers we can offer you any piece of information you might need.

gif10.gif

8. We inspire.

Volunteering can be a stepping stone for you. It is a source of motivation and inspiration—through various volunteering activities you can discover your career path.

gif20.gif

9. We help people.

Volunteering is like asking yourself “Would you still do your job, even if you did not get paid for it?” Volunteers are people who are willing to invest their free time into helping others not because they have to do it, but because they want to do it. No matter what you are doing—helping international students find their place in a new surrounding or helping your local community—you matter. And is there a better way to end your day other than hearing a warm thank you?

gif24.gif

10. We make a difference.

Interacting with people from other cultures can make you more open-minded, tolerant, and understanding. Volunteering can change your point-of-view, educate you and help you break stereotypes. You find yourself in situations you never thought you would be in, doing things you never thought you would be doing. You acquire knowledge and skills that can become your lifeline. Volunteering opens a whole new window of possibilities and experiences. You stop wanting to become better than other people and you start wanting to outgrow yourself. You become your own superhero.
