The Broadening Horizons project will enable experienced partners from UK and Georgia to pool their skills to provide two young people the opportunity to participate as EVS volunteers for 6 months in Georgia. The sending organisation Dacorum CVS and the host organisation Student Youth Council launched this six-month project to promote people to people contacts, intercultural dialogue, and the exchange of ideas - core European values.
The project wishes to strengthen civil society development within Georgia as well as to give a relevant intercultural experience to volunteers and local young people who can become active members within and outside their society. It deals with three main issues: rural development and urbanisation, gender equality, and social dialogue. The delivery within these three themes will be underpinned by the principle and benefits of active citizenship and engagement in civic life.
The EVS Volunteers will benefit from living in another country and benefit through increased language skills and competence, increased confidence, more clarity on their future goals and aspirations, an enhanced CV, better intercultural knowledge and understanding and new friends and contacts who they can draw upon for future support mechanisms.
