Direction EVS Welcome to Finland II
Start date: Jan 1, 2016,
End date: Mar 31, 2017
Youth Centre Villa Elba coordinates the project " Direction EVS: Welcome to Finland II. In this project we'll host 10 volunteers from Romania, Spain, Austria, Italy and Luxemburg and send one volunteer from Finland to Slovenia. With this project we want to bring young people from different countries and cultures to work with children and young people in our area. In small towns and rural areas the inhabitants do not have many possibilities for intercultural dialoque and to gain international contacts, so trough the voluntary worker they can get these experiences in their own living environment. We hope that this way multuiculturality would become a natural part of children and young peopels everyday life. The volunteers are young people aged 18-30 who are intrested to gain new experiences and skills trough voluntary work. When choosing the volunteers, we favor volunteers who does not have so many possibilities to participate in international programmes for en example because of unemployment, lack of language skills, or they suffer from financial or social problems. This project responds to the priorities of Erasmus+ programme since we work with young people with fewer opportunities to offer them chances to participate in international activities and self-development. We encourage young people for active citizenship and to take responsibility for themselves, people nearby and the nature. EVS is a good tool to support young people to become independent, to help them to develop their skills and to broaden their picture of the world as well to help to understand and respect different cultures. We want to make multiculturality a natural part of peoples everyday life.
