The project Connecting International and local volunteering aims at non-formal education of volunteers, mainly young people with fewer opportunities, aged 18 to 30. During their EVS, they will experience a difference in their life, gain skills through non-formal educaation, or in many cases also lead non-formal educational activities to others. This will greatly contibute to the empowerment process of the young people. We would like to connect local and international volunteers very active way to cooperate on fulfilling of aims of the projectKERIC will send:1 volunteer to Portugal for 6 months 1 volunteer to Italy for 6 months KERIC will host 2 volunteers from Poland for 2 months 1 volunteer from France, 1 from Austria, 1 from Italy for 11 months We know all our partner organisations and build on their experience in support to volunteers, especially to volunteers with fewer opportunities. During the voluntary service, the young people will gain intercultural experience, raise European awareness and fight against prejudice against foreigners. The project will contribute to personal and proffessional development of the volunteers with the aim to find a job in the future as well as help the people from local communities to become more open and tolerant towards foreigners, people anyhow different from them. The activities of the volunteers very depending on the host organisation. Generally, the volunteers will support the local communinty, work with children and youth, lead educational activities, organise workshops, awareness activities, cultural and sport clubs, spread information about EVS.
