DAC is pleased to welcome and host Jazmin Schneeberger, representing OAJNU organization from Argentina, in a job-shadowing activity taking place between 20-28th of September 2015!
Curious to meet her? Then get to know her through her own words:
“My name is Jazmín Schneeberger, I am 30 years old and I come from Argentina. I study International Relations at the National University of Rosario, which is the second city in Argentina in terms of importance. During the last years, I have worked in the public sector in my country, in the local as well as in the regional level, in the Secretary of International Relations. Basically, I was in contact with many people, trying to answer their questions and clear their doubts regarding to the topic.
In my spare time, I like very much to study languages, listen to music from different countries and take long walks around Rosario, as a way to relax and reflect about the things that I have done during the day.
I am also a volunteer in the Argentinean Youth Organization for the United Nations (OAJNU), where I am in charge of the different international projects in which the organization participates. I coordinate some of them together with other members of OAJNU, and this is something that I really like to do, because through these activities, I can understand many other realities, stories, cultures and habits, which is very rewarding and useful for my life and my personal development.”
A job shadowing is an observation opportunity for those persons interested to be exposed to one more fields DAC is active in.
Jazmin’s job-shadowing is focused on four main pillars:
- social economy & social entrepreneurship – several study visits and meetings with experts on the topic;
- project management – PIE+ project and the preparation of the FAQ document;
- reflection on learning – mostly an individual process with at least one common meeting;
- economic, narrative and visual reporting.
The job-shadowing is organized as part of the SEEDS project, financed by EACEA through the Erasmus + programme.
The Argentinean Youth Organization for the United Nations is fully integrated and run by young volunteers and formally constituted in Argentina, but from 2015, it works also in Uruguay. It has more than 450 members under the motto ¨we are the force of young volunteers empowering others in terms to build an increasingly inclusive, fair and right-promoting society¨.
