Do you live in Frome and have a spare room?
Do you want to support a young adult to create a sustainable livelihood and make a positive difference in Frome?
edventure: Frome is a new community initiative prototyping its new model for Community Supported Education in Frome. We are seeking ‘local hosts’ who can offer accommodation, on a non-monetary work-exchange basis, to its 15 new participants starting their edventureship year in Frome September 24th.
Participants will be working full time on the edventureship programme; which will support them to make a positive difference in Frome, while preparing them with the skills and capacities to create a meaningful livelihood. Each student will require accommodation for three 14 week terms, which can be split across different local hosts.
The exchange agreement between students and hosts will be negotiated on an individual basis with the support of edventure: Frome. We are seeking to create mutual benefit for our participants and local people in Frome, on an individual and community level.
We do ask that the work undertaken by the students take a maximum of 6 hours as the edventureship programme will require full-time commitment from all of its participants.
Basic meals will be provided through the edventureship programme, although you may want to share some meals together.
Please email us ([email protected]) if you are interested in learning more about the initiative and how you as a host can benefit and contribute. We will be organising an information evening end of July.Read More
