The EVS project "Everyone is learning vol. 2” takes place in Ida-Virumaa, Estonia, within 14 months from 01.08.2016 to 30.09.2017. It brings to Narva and Ahtme 9 EVS volunteers from Bulgaria, France, Germany, Hungary, Spain and Turkey to make their voluntary services in local communities. Volunteers will be received by 5 organizations: VitaTiim NGO, Sädemeke, Tuluke, Potsataja and Käoke kindergartens, day care centre LAD, Narva Vanalinna State School and Ahtme School. Moreover, several partnering organizations - Narva Young Sailors' Club, Narva Kesklinna Gymnasium, Narva Paju School, Gagarin centre, will be involved into cooperation with volunteers more actively.The aim of the project is to encourage intercultural dialogue and learning for globally empowered and locally active youth and stronger society through providing international experience at local community and promoting learning mobility. The objectives of the project are:- to increase intercultural sensitivity in Ida-Virumaa community;- to increase positive attitude and support to diversity in Ida-Virumaa community through experience of working, living and learning together with 'unfamiliar others", e.g. EVS volunteers, people with disabilities;- to increase number of Ida-Virumaa young people and organisations engaged in EVS through raising positive awareness about European Voluntary Service and creating personal links to EVS volunteers;- to increase number of Ida-Virumaa young people participating in EVS projects abroad through broadening youngsters' and their parents' new perspectives on the world and career development opportunities with the help of EVS volunteers' personal life and career stories;- to increase disadvantaged youth access to European Voluntary Service through improving competences and strengthening the partnership between the organisations involved;- to increase number of local initiatives for positive change in Ida-Virumaa community with the help of inspiring environment and role models.Every volunteer will have specific activities and programmes with individual priorities and objectives depending on his/her interests, needs, competences and RO's needs and activities. Though the volunteers are expected to work in a strong cooperation with each other as well to increase an intercultural and learning dimension and strengthen positive influence in local community. The volunteers wil be of a great support for organizations’ daily activities, for making changes in the routine, bringing new ideas and developing new initiatives together with staff of receiving organizations. All activities are mostly based on practical experience as well as non-formal and informal learning.As a result and potential longterm benefit we expect local young people and organizations to develop open-mindedness and flexibility, become more open for intercultural dialogue and willing to actively participate in social life and learning mobilities. We expect to increase participation in EVS both amongst young people and organizations. Moreover, it is expected that 9 EVS volunteers will essentially develop they professional and key competences and gain self-confidence, what help them to be happy, successful and productive in their careers.
