Activating youth participation. Get to know Europe II
Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 1, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Through the project ACTIVATING YOUTH PARTICIPATION. GET TO KNOW EUROPE II, the Council of Youth of La Rioja will welcome three volunteers from Lithuania, Ukraine and Byelorussia for seven months. The profile of the volunteers and their motivation to develop skills and knowledge in the youth area will enable to achieve the goals of this project based on three fundamental pillars: - European citizenship, European awareness and democracy. - Youth (engagement, youth work, Youth Policy) - Labour market issues, youth unemployment The main activities to develop are divided in four areas (formation of associations, international issues, webs and social networks and collaboration with the Youth Council of Logroño) which cover different tasks as youth information, preparation and development of courses and seminars, orientation on searching for employment, promotion of EVS, development of different activities included in Erasmus Plus programme, web and social network updating and participation in different cultural activities as concerts and workshops. Volunteers will be able to collaborate in those activities that suit their motivation or expectations the most. However, proposed initiatives by the volunteers according to their own interests will be appreciated. Working methods will be based on a personalised training according to the volunteers’ needs and their active participation as part of the CJR team in order to provide a range of skills and competences key for the future of the volunteers and the organisation. Dissemination of results after the end of the project will be a main goal. For that, different tools as presence in the media, blogs and social network updating, talks, open days or maintaining contact with the associations members of The Youth council of La Rioja will be used. In the long term, promoting youth initiatives as part of Erasmus Plus programme will be expected, as a conversion of Youth Council of La Rioja into a reference organisation for promoting youth participation, European awareness and support to young people from la Rioja.
