Embajadores de SVE en Cantabria
Start date: Jan 1, 2016,
End date: Jun 30, 2017
The EVS group activity consists of hosting three groups of volunteers by two local receiving organizations from Cantabria (Spain) SERJUCO (Youth Service in Colindres) and the regional representation of ONCE in Cantabria with its headquarters in Santander.The individual activity duration is 9 and 8 months. Three of the volunteers will join the project in February, two in April and two in July. This is to enhance peer-learning and the exchange of experience between the volunteers, because the first ones will show to the newcomers the project and explain how it works and will accompany them in the activities at the beginning. The first activity involves working on the proposal and development of the activities and planned actions run by the Youth Department of the City of Colindres. The Youth Service Colindres has a team of professionals with training and experience related to non formal education, free time activities and socio-cultural field, children and youth. Volunteers will be integrated as part of the team. Scheduled activities are carried out as well as training programmes in the field of non-formal education and active participation. Moreover a series of lectures and workshops is carried out for parents with the aim of preventing eating disorders among teenagers, first aid, sex education, responsible use of internet and Prevention of Drug Addiction. At ONCE both volunteers help affiliates (people with visual impairments) in their daily tasks, like for example, going to the doctor , shopping , errands at the bank, etc ... and they also accompany and participate in workshops and tours of the ONCE, cultural events and specific events facilitating their integration .Moreover, volunteers will participate in various training and leisure activities carried out by Asociación Ser Joven (coordinating organization ) in Cantabria and campaigning activities to disseminate Erasmus + Youth in Action program in Santander and Cantabria, as our Viernes SVE, talks in schools , the Day of Volunteering in collaboration with the University of Cantabria in December..The results of this project will be disseminated through training activities in collaboration with local stakeholders about Erasmus+ Youth in Action, such as Espacio Joven of Santander City Council and the Youth Service of the Directorate General for Youth of the Government of Cantabria.In the long term we hope to collaborate with the sending organizations to host volunteers in the future and continue working with established protocols .
