They would like to host Marco Vazzana, a student from Italy from 09.09.2016 - 09.07.2017 (10 months). Marco will support the team of the youthcenter. With a mix of acitvities the youth center tries to support participation within the community of Oberndorf to improve integrations status and to give shelter and backup when necessary. Further it wants to support useful leasure time activities such as sport activities, excursions, creative activities, concerts, workshops and discussions, intercultural learning, homework activities, job coaching, movie times etc. By hosting European volunteers we would like to develop solidarity and to fasciliate understanding and tolerance. The experience of an EVS will influence not only the volunteers themselves but also the staff in the hosting organisations and the children and youngsters they work with, but also their family and friends. The volunteers who are doing their EVS in Salzburg are mainly together with up to twelve other volunteers from different European countries and Europan partner countries. Mostly they do also meet once a month at akzente at our so-called „EVS breakfast“ or at freetime activities. As they meet each other regulary they can spend time with each other, talk to each other, and like this identify common values with other young people from different countries in spite of their cultural differences. Also in the host organizations themselves the volunteers have the possibility to get to know people form other countries – Austrians as well as people from other parts of the world. Because of this the volunteers are also stimulated to reflect on the essential characteristics of European society. As all of them have the possibilities to start own projects within the host organizations they also learn to be creative and active and understand that they play an active role - in their projects, in their communities and in society. As all of the host organizations are open minded and eager to host a volunteer from another European country and like that they do not only discover Europe but also aim to build a common Europe.
