Start date: May 5, 2015, End date: Aug 5, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project is developed for young people with fewer opportunities that are facing very difficult psychosocial situations, poverty, social exclusion, special needs and unemployement. Our aim is to work on the competences that will help young people in the process of inclusion into society and on the labor market. The short term EVS activities will be one part of a longer learning process that will provide long lasting effects. We want to enhance the personality development of young people through the empowerment based on non-formal learning and positive experiences, make their self esteem better, develop more efficient coping strategies and get over their prejudicies. Under Activity 1 we will send 6 Slovenian volunteers on short term EVS to the organization Falcogroup in Russia. The volunteers will help with the organisation of the international summer camps for children (MOST CAMP). Zavod Manipura from Slovenia will host all together 22 volunteers from Italy, Turkey, Georgia, Russia, France, Estonia, HUngary, Montenegro and Macedonia. The volunteers will be able to join a wide spectrum of activities: they will help with the renovation of the house, making small furniture for the Youth Centre, building a small sport field and adventure playground, making ecological garden and the place for small animals... Next to the practical work they will help to organise and they will join the free-time activities for local children and youth like sport activities, playing games in the nature and other outdoor activities, different artistic activities and free playing time for children. They will do some work for the local community like helping elderly people, spending time with the disabled people and organise some activities for the children in the local kindergarten and primary school. The volunteers will also help to create the promotion materials for the Youth Centre and for EVS and take part in the promotion activities. There will be a very intense intercultural learning process because we will host volunteers from different countries at the same time.
