A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES
Start date: 02 May 2015,
End date: 01 Feb 2017
The project A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES (WOP) wants to be a source of motivation and engagement in world citizenship for all the youngsters directly involved in EVS and all the others that will get in touch with them. We want that the volunteers involved in this project feel themselves as multipliers of pro-active and ready-to-act behaviors. We also want to broaden each participants' horizon in terms of creativity, culture and new possibilities or ways of acting. We also intend that an extraordinary opportunity, out of their daily life, bring a deeper understanding of the world and the place that they have in it. To acquire that, we will rely in the participants sense of initiative and entrepreneurship which can and will make them stand out when approaching the job market and give them a higher possibility of employability.
We also aim to promote EVS under the frame of "Lisbon: volunteering capital for 2015".
Partnership is based on common interest and objectives so themes will focus on Citizenship, Youth Participation, Intercultural Dialogue and Entrepreneurship, aiming to share tools and good practices contributing to a better information and autonomy of youngsters. We all work with the purpose of constantly motivate youngsters to improve their self-esteem and be active Citizens in their communities. Volunteers have an important role in actions we promote: they are the living witness of a good practice and they have the possibility to exchange each other (volunteers and local youngsters) culture and ideas, offering a positive model of behaviors.
Main areas and contexts where volunteers will be included: ESD-Education on Sustainable Development, Communication and Multimedia, Animation with children and youngsters, participation in Youth Exchanges and Meetings, organization of Art events and Cooperation in youth training and initiatives to be able to bring back to their own communities the experience they had.
