My name is Maria and I’m 26 years old. In January 2012 I graduated from college and got a bachelor degree in social education. After graduation I did volunteer work for two months at a camp for people with disabilities in Missouri, USA. After camp I got a job as a social educator here in Denmark. I have been working at an afterschool daycare since October 2013. I love working with children/adults with disabilities and is therefore looking for a job in that area.

I am interested in working in any country that has English as their main language, as I speak English fluently. In addition to that if any Spanish speaking country has a job where it is not required that you speak Spanish I am interested in that too.

Please contact me at this email address if interested: maria_fone@hotmail.com.

Erasmus+ 2014 and HETI world congress Taiwan 2015

Here are two announcements from Dr. Lorenzo Lucarelli from Spain:

Erasmus+ 2014

Dear colleagues,

As president of the Spanish Association for the equine mediated education and activities, I have the honor to present you the new project Erasmus+ in which our organization is involved.

It is a call for papers addressed to all those organizations who work or wish to work with the animal mediation (specially horses mediation) in social education activities.

The coordinator of the project will be HRDF, the Hungarian federation of Riding for the disable, linked with the International Children Safety Service, ICSS. Other participants are France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Norway, Netherlands, Belgium, and possibly also Slovakia.

The goal of the project is to set up a students exchange network across Europe and worldwide, in the field of the animal mediated education and therapies, since we know that practicing with animals is very good for social education students for it enable them to communicate non verbally without any kind of violence. This skill is very important in Social education as well as in other fields.

We are looking not only for full partners participating in the project but also for silent partners who would be beneficiaries of the project and help us in the dissemination of results.

If you wish to receive more information about the project you may write an email to me at lucarellil@hotmail.com or at secretaria@aedeq.org or you can write to the president of HRDF, Peter Edvi, at peter@gyermekmento.hu or at agnes.kertesz@lovasterapia.hu

Thank you very much for your kind attention, replies and comments

Best regards
