Start date: May 1, 2015, End date: Apr 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This main activity of this project is a EVS action address to two volunteer from Germany and Portugal for 6 months (June-november 2015). Volunteers coming to Vicolocorto need to be open for a learning-by-doing experience. We would like to involve youngster which stop their study at high school, aged between 18 and 20 years old, and without previous international long term experience as they could be easily interact with the peers active in summer initiatives. EVS experience could enrich their CV and could provide them some competences and soft skills highly appreciated in the Job Market. Moreover, it provide them a space to get self-confidence about personal competences and abilities being involved in activities with the support of a coach who can show them the success of the tasks they realize within their service. Moreover this experience could give them an experience of living and working abroad which could prepare them eventually to decide to search for job in a different European country as the economical situation the youngster face nowadays often require them to move abroad. All the outcomes will be achieved being involved in coaching activities and cultural events organized during the summertime by our organization working in a team with local youngster supported by a coach / youth worker. Moreover, they will attend an italian training course who will support in their integration process in the community. Tasks of the group will be the realization of information materials, visibility, dissemination for festival and events. They will have an active role including all the phasis of each “micro-project” like planning, preparation, implementation and evaluation to be done on weekly basis. Each group will work using peer to peer methods. In each group there will be a coach responsible of the learning aspects of the group providing educational workshop using informal methods to improve their competences and supporting the teamworking dealing with their coordination. The role of the EVS will be to support the coach but it will not substitute any person involved on the work of the organization: they will work as social animation and they could also give own personal contribution as part of the team. Also, a strong accent is being put on stimulating the EVS volunteers' own initiatives and on the importance of personalizing her actions within host communities. By a gradual knowledge process, we wish that volunteer could get awareness of her own ability and interests. At local level, the volunteer will bring an intercultural influence to the local events stimulating tolerance and open-mind attitute on local volunteers, member of the association and youngster which will interact with the volunteer. Presence of EVS volunteer will show the added values of international initiatives and aspects even in local events developing the youth field contribute on the development of the European awarenees also in the local partners and stakeholder and on their active role on building the European Society stimulating the local stakeholder to work on the direction of integrating more activities at international level. At international level it will create and strengthen intercultural bridges between different countries.
